Hot Rod Anglican at the NPC Natural Michigan Bodybuilding Contest

Some of you know that I was training to compete in the 2009 NPC Natural Michigan bodybuilding contest. I didn't place so well (3rd of 3 in the Grand Masters class - for men over 50 years old) ... but I had a blast, and got into the best condition of my life.

Plus, I realized my dream of posing to the music Dieterich Buxtehude! Here is a link to the 90 seconds of music I used. My posing routine included this pose which has a kind of Anglo-Catholic-bodybuilder-marching-up-to-the-altar sort of look about it.

I was not able to incorporate any genuflection into the routine, because I had injured my knee two days earlier.
