It’s that time again! This weekend is Iron Tribe’s annual Tribal Wars competition. I’ll be heading on the road tomorrow to meet up with my fellow tribers, ready for battle. Birmingham or bust, baby!
For those of you unfamiliar with Tribal Wars, it is the inter-gym competition for all of Iron Tribe Fitness. It’s broken up into divisions based on skill level (I’m middle of the road and fall into the “Tribe” division). The events will take place Friday and Saturday with a block party to follow. This year, I believe there are around 600 competitors! Any member of Iron Tribe is allowed to participate no matter their fitness level. I really like this inclusive attitude as it fosters the family-like feeling we have at our gym. I’m definitely looking forward to cheering on all of the teams (especially the ones from Downtown Nola) this weekend! If you’d like to follow along, they’ll be streaming us live on Facebook or search #TribalWars16 on social media.
While enchiladas are not going to be part of my pre-Tribal Wars diet, I look forward to scarfing these babies down upon my return! I chose to make my own tortillas (recipe here), but instead of making 8 tortillas with my recipe, I chose to make 5 larger tortillas. Because, stuffing. Lots and lots of stuffing.
