080617 TUESDAY “Correct Map to the Games”
The address for the CrossFit Games site is 275 Dunbarton Rd, Aromas CA 95004, but Mapquest and Google maps have send you to the wrong side of the Freeway (The correct side is the eastern side).
Long,Lat coordinates are: 36.841238, -121.631807
Here is a map from the San Jose Airport to the actual site:
If you’d like to get directions from your house, click here and change the starting destination to where you’ll be leaving from. For example it is approximately 1 hour and 36 minutes from The Shed.
Google is so damn thorough (and a little scary), they even have a ‘street view’ of the site!

“To determine how ghrelin affects mood, Dr. Zigman and his colleagues restricted the food intake of laboratory mice for 10 days. This caused their ghrelin levels to quadruple. As compared to the control mice, which were allowed free access to food, the calorie-restricted mice displayed decreased levels of anxiety and depression when subjected to mazes and other standard behavior tests for depression and anxiety.
. . .Until modern times, the one common human experience was securing enough food to prevent starvation. Our hunter-gatherer ancestors needed to be as calm and collected as possible when it was time to venture out in search of food, or risk becoming dinner themselves, Dr. Zigman said, adding that the anti-anxiety effects of hunger-induced ghrelin may have provided a survival advantage.”
I definitely feel more focused and less stressed when practicing regular “Intermittent Fasting” bouts (16 – 20 hour fasts, approx 3 times a week). I also wonder if the hormone ghrelin plays some part in the greatly increased lifespan that caloric restriction provides. For example, the single greatest factor agreed upon when talking about people living past the century mark is stress – or lack thereof. -jj
