Last Saturday,  Team Eshe met at the Exorcist Steps in Georgetown for ‘Battle of the Sexes’. The competition involved different bodyweight activities to measure fitness.

They had to run stairs. Not just any stairs, the steepest outdoor staircase in D.C, the Exorcist Steps.


 They had to complete pushups and mountain climbers.

Then jump on a bar for chin ups.



Each person was responsible for logging their repetitions.

I crowned winners for the individual activities. And I crowned the gender who completed the most repetitions overall. (Because the men were outnumbered, I took the average.)

Category Winners

1st place: Sarween 25 rounds

Battle of the Sexes Winner?

Women. We won with an average score of 115. The men averaged 96. The men dominated on pushups and chin ups. But the women crushed the men on mountain climbers and stairs. It was a great event. We will have another battle in September. I have no doubt it’ll be a repeat championship.

For the millionth time…I am so, so, so sad I missed this. This is what I live for. Way to go, ladies!!!!! Props to the guys as well – keep up the hard work, fellas, and maybe one day y’all will run like girls, too.
