That's right, the stomach is the EXTREME athlete's final conquest, an uncharted ocean of challenges and gastro-intestinal sporting opportunities. And so, we urge you to summon forth the cliff diver that's inside all of us, and hurl yourself headlong into our Food Issue, in which we've explored the farthest outposts of human eating limitations. What? You chicken?
