The day is here when we all find out who’s coming with me to Challenge Philippines 2015! Thank you all for participating in the contest. I used RandomPicker to choose the winners (one male, one female) to ensure impartiality of results.
As part of the mechanics I asked participants to post on my Facebook Page wall answering the question, “Why do I want to join Challenge Philippines?” There’s actually no right or wrong answer, but they were all nonetheless entertaining and inspiring. Here are some of my favorite responses:

Oh, Tim. You know you can crush me in all three disciplines. ;)
