Today, we’ve bumped our normal Steal This Meal feature (see yesterday’s post for this week’s offering) to wish Dallas a very happy birthday. Normally he hates it when I say nice things about him in public, but what’s a birthday without a little embarrassment?
Dallas has been celebrating in style, hitting a snatch balance PR in the middle of his Catalyst Athletics strength cycle yesterday afternoon. Not one, but TWO successful attempts at his heaviest snatch balance ever! What better present could you ask for? (Well… maybe a new NYC Endurance t-shirt, since he’s just about worn his out?) Nevertheless, we’ll be painting the town red in Minnesota this weekend as we draw out his birthday into a weekend long celebratory extravaganza (with a few nutrition workshops thrown in for good measure).
Please join me in wishing Dallas happy birthday today!

Happy birthday and congrats on your PR’s, I am wondering what a whole 30 birthday cake looks like…
I would kill for a snatch balance PR for my birthday! Congrats, Dallas! Hope you have a wonderful birthday-extravaganza weekend!
all the best,
Happy Birthday Dallas!

@Allie – do you mean, like this? ;-) (My thoughts exactly!)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DALLAS!!! Enjoy your day!
Dave in Dallas says
happy birthday man!
Happy Birthday Dallas! Oh and I have a question totally off topic: What’s up with Liquid Aminos? I think I’ve seen them in some paleo recipes but they’re made with soybeans?
Dallas @ Whole9 says
Thanks, everyone. We’re having a rockin’ day in Minneapolis-St Paul. Going to the rock gym to apply some of those hard-earned pullups…
Good call. We use Coconut Aminos (made by Coconut Secret) in place of any soy sauce. Whole Foods sometimes stocks it, but you might have to coerce a local natural foods store to order it for you. It’s awesome. We even take it with us when we go to sushi!
Happy Birthday, Dallas! Nice job on the snatch balance PR!
