#1033 – Alexis Raptis | 6th Fittest Woman on EARTH

Sevan Matossian (00:02):

Bam. We’re live. Oh, uhoh.

Caleb Beaver (00:09):

What is this?

Sevan Matossian (00:11):

Oh no, shoot. Hey. Ah. Good morning. Scratchy. Scratchy throat. I noticed it a couple of days ago. The Bur dude. What’s up, dude? Eaton Beaver. What’s up, Caleb? Beaver. What’s up?

Caleb Beaver (00:27):

Good morning.

Sevan Matossian (00:29):

Hey, I sent you the notes with no links, but there’s a funny comment I want to ask her about. That’s in her post that Cooper March made.

Caleb Beaver (00:38):


Sevan Matossian (00:39):

We’ll probably need that post, dude. She’s doing the tour. The tour?

Caleb Beaver (00:43):

Yeah. Seriously.

Sevan Matossian (00:45):

Brian Spin, then here, and then over to Pedro. Pedro. What is colitis? Does that mean she’s shitting her pants and stuff?

Caleb Beaver (01:00):

I think so. To an extent.

Sevan Matossian (01:03):

Does it change the viscosity? Does it change the It does,

Caleb Beaver (01:07):

Yeah. A little bit.

Sevan Matossian (01:08):

That’s why no one wants to talk about it. No one wants to talk about just poop in general.

Caleb Beaver (01:12):

Nobody likes talking about poop.

Sevan Matossian (01:14):

I understand. Dude. Crazy. Ari, my son got his cast off.

Caleb Beaver (01:21):

Oh, he did?

Sevan Matossian (01:21):

Yeah. It was crazy hot here yesterday and he got his cast off, so he’s been taking baths now, and he’s so happy. He’s been taking two baths a day. He’s like, can I take another bath? I’m like, yeah, dude. So he just lays there. He brings his toys into the bathtub and he just lays there and he just talks to himself and sings, and he’s just like, he’s in heaven. We got a big bathtub. And so then afterwards, while he was in the bath, I took these really soft pat yoga pads. They’re not really yoga pads. They’re from tumble track. They’re really thick and they have material on ’em like fur, so they’re really comfortable and nice to lay on. And I put ’em out on the skateboard ramp where it’s hot as shit, and I put three of them, and then I took ’em from the bath and I put ’em on those mats just in the scorching sun on the skateboard ramp. And I laid out there with them for 10 minutes and I can tell, dude, my skin turned red.

Caleb Beaver (02:17):

A little dark.

Sevan Matossian (02:18):

Yeah. Oh, good. Dark. Okay. I didn’t turn red good. Okay. I feel like I looked a little redder than yesterday. I was like, wow, I got some sun out there with him.

Caleb Beaver (02:25):

They’ll turn to a tan. No worries.

Sevan Matossian (02:28):

Good. Thank you. You’re a nurse too, you know stuff. You’re a medical professional.

Caleb Beaver (02:32):

Yeah. Yeah, I know stuff.

Sevan Matossian (02:34):

Beaver, do you have time to do the shaan and go to school?

Caleb Beaver (02:39):


Sevan Matossian (02:39):


Caleb Beaver (02:40):

For sure.

Sevan Matossian (02:41):

I don’t mean

Caleb Beaver (02:41):

To act like take a

Sevan Matossian (02:41):

Lot of your mom or your dad. I’m just wondering.

Caleb Beaver (02:44):

No, no. There’s plenty of time. It takes a little bit of extra work, but it’s totally doable.

Sevan Matossian (02:50):

Is your wife living with your parents now too?

Caleb Beaver (02:53):

No, she’s still back in Virginia.

Sevan Matossian (02:56):

Oh. Like tying up loose ends and shit.

Caleb Beaver (02:59):

Basically. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (03:01):

Why did you come without her?

Caleb Beaver (03:03):

My new orders required me to be here on a certain date, so I needed to show up and in process with my new unit and shake hands with everybody, and then I can do whatever I want basically until the next month.

Sevan Matossian (03:22):

Even though you’re in the National Guard?

Caleb Beaver (03:24):

Yeah. I had a separation date, which was one October, and then there’s no gap in services, what they call it. So I had to show up the next day after my separation date to swear into the guard.

Sevan Matossian (03:39):

Is it a pay cut?

Caleb Beaver (03:41):


Sevan Matossian (03:43):

Do you have a senior position there since you’ve already been playing?

Caleb Beaver (03:46):

No, even when I was playing, I was pretty low level.

Sevan Matossian (03:51):

How many years is the commitment?

Caleb Beaver (03:54):

Technically it’s six years, but it’s just one weekend a month For six years.

Sevan Matossian (03:59):

For six years, gotcha.

Caleb Beaver (04:00):


Sevan Matossian (04:01):

But you could stay in longer.

Caleb Beaver (04:03):

Yeah, I could totally do that.

Sevan Matossian (04:05):

Does it go to, how long were you in the Air Force? Four years.

Caleb Beaver (04:09):

Four years. Did you

Sevan Matossian (04:12):

Think about staying longer?

Caleb Beaver (04:16):

Yeah, not really. After I came back from deployment.

Sevan Matossian (04:19):

That’s a great answer, by the way. Yeah. Not

Caleb Beaver (04:22):

Really. Not really. When I came back from deployment, I started working back in another clinic and I just couldn’t, I don’t know, I just had a hard time adjusting back to regular active duty military life, because being deployed is completely different. Everybody’s a family and everybody’s looking out for each other and everybody’s taking care of each other, but then as soon as you get back stateside, nobody really cares. They just keep pushing. And if you fall off, you fall off kind of thing. So I didn’t really care for that.

Sevan Matossian (04:57):

It would be awesome if we could make this podcast a profession.

Caleb Beaver (05:01):

Yeah, that would be fantastic.

Sevan Matossian (05:05):

I was in this rush to get out of this space, and now I’m immersed in it even more than ever. I was talking to Andrew about it yesterday. I was like, holy shit, I’m doubling and tripling down on the space.

Caleb Beaver (05:16):

Like CrossFit.

Sevan Matossian (05:17):

Yeah. I went from, I want to only do 500 shows to, okay, I’m just going to leverage the CrossFit community to get out of this space to now I’m just, just steeped in it, cornerstone of it. I really am about to become the CEO O, it’s like quicksand. Every time I try to get out, I sink in even deeper, but I’ve surrendered to it. I’m not even trying to get out anymore. I’m like, fuck you, I’m taking over. But I do think that we could accidentally get out of it anyway. I dunno if I’m lying to myself, but we’re going to come out the other side. Don’t go in the black hole. Don’t go in the black hole. Fuck. We’ll just go in and come out the other side.

Caleb Beaver (06:08):

Yeah, pretty much. I mean, we can do anything from disc golf to fucking arm wrestling. There’s anything you could think of. We can talk about it, we can research it. We can do it better than anybody else.

Sevan Matossian (06:24):

I was reflecting, and by the way, that’s why we’re such a good team. We’re both the delusional, I love that. I was reflecting on yesterday’s podcast and I was like, what were the highlights of it? And I thought the highlights were talking to Kudo about whether his husband’s jealous. Did Scott Panache or and Brooke leave or were they asked to leave? And then the hog talk about Es because I wanted to talk about his hog before, but I didn’t because I was scared someone was going to report me to HQ and we were going to not be allowed to do the behind the scenes. If I talked about how giant his dong was, that’s how scared I was. Scared is not the right word, but the reason why I was reflecting is I watched that Mr. Beast video. Did you by any chance watch that?

Caleb Beaver (07:19):

Yeah, I watched it as well.

Sevan Matossian (07:20):

Yeah. And it’s like, I don’t know what my takeaway from there was, but I watched 10. It’s just for you guys don’t know. There was this Mr. Beast video I sent Caleb, and it’s just a 10 minute compilation of just advice from him. And even though I’m not, I don’t, I dunno what category I put him in, but man, I was so motivated. It’s so crazy. I didn’t want to watch. I had some resistance to watching it and I’m like, fuck it, I’m going to watch it anyway. And it was so good. It did me so good, his advice, and I was just motivated when I came out the other side of that, I was like, all right, alright.

Caleb Beaver (07:52):

There’s a lot of good tidbits in there. And I think a lot of what he’s saying is a reflection of what we’re doing already. We have a massive group of friends that we can bounce ideas off of. Everybody’s doing the same thing and their own version of it and telling everybody else how to do it better. We’re all critiquing each other. We’re all talking shit. And all of that is growth.

Sevan Matossian (08:17):

That’s interesting. So we do have that group of the obsessed people. I was also thinking too, he basically says, don’t use clickbait always over promise. Stevon clickbait us with wrap his thumbnail Goddess. No, come on. I don’t click click bait. I still think she’s coming and oh, I think Oldest’s Hog is called Mr. Beast. That fair. But also the reason why I was reflecting on those, I think that those three pieces that I mentioned fall under that Mr. Push athlete interviews, CrossFit interviews and athlete interviews are just kind of boring. They’re just kind of dead. So the interview has to be pushed into some. How are Brian and Kudo and I going to react to seeing the outline of the giant penis? How is the audience going to, you don’t hear the nuance of the fact that kudos gay and that his husband might be jealous. That’s a nuance you don’t hear talked about too often. And then another perspective on the intensity, because Tia obviously is the greatest to ever do it. And now we’re talking about her camp where people kicked out or not kicked out. I don’t know. I was just proud. Just proud. Zero, humility,

Caleb Beaver (09:40):

All those CrossFit interviews, they just turn into the same thing. Well, who are you training with? What are you eating? What’s your training schedule? It’s the same thing. So unless you dive into a deeper part of the relationship with that person, you’re not going to get any, there’s nothing new coming out of it. Then you can see if you don’t do that, you don’t see Kudo get uncomfortable and you ask him who Haley’s coach is or who or about,

Sevan Matossian (10:07):

Oh, see Haley. Oh, another one.

Caleb Beaver (10:09):

That’s what it was.

Sevan Matossian (10:10):

Who? She’s been kissing, who she’s dating. Oh yeah, yeah. Has anyone played haw in the gym? Right. Okay.

Caleb Beaver (10:15):

Right. If you don’t push into that space, you don’t get that insight. He doesn’t get uncomfortable and you don’t see, I don’t know. You can’t make leaps into topics. You, God, you’re

Sevan Matossian (10:30):

Making me realize how great the interview was now. It wasn’t just good. Fuck.

Caleb Beaver (10:37):

Nice. Good job

Sevan Matossian (10:40):

Y Clark. Good morning, Shan. I love you. I love you too. Well, that’s because both athletes are generally boring on the service.

Caleb Beaver (10:51):

They’re boring below the surface too.

Sevan Matossian (10:54):

Allegra our first live show I’ve caught in a minute. Good morning. Really? I feel like, oh, well, welcome back. Thanks for making my commute enjoyable. Beard looks good on you, Caleb. Dude, that’s exactly what I wanted the show to be. I want the show to be a commuter show. I love a fucking computer show.

Caleb Beaver (11:15):

Yeah, when I was driving, that’s all I listened to

Sevan Matossian (11:18):

Is the Seon podcast.

Caleb Beaver (11:20):


Sevan Matossian (11:21):

Oh, that’s awesome. Yeah, I love, I loved driving to school and listening to AM radio six 10 K F R C. I just loved it. Seon is humble. Pat himself on back, humbly Pats himself on the back. Alright. I don’t know if she’s coming on. Did I?

Caleb Beaver (11:45):

You sent her a link?

Sevan Matossian (11:47):

I think I did. I meant to. Oh, I’m in the right place, correct. Oh shit. Oh shit. Oh shit. Wrong link. Oh shit. Yeah, it must’ve sent her the wrong link. Wow. What a douche nozzle. Oh my goodness.

Caleb Beaver (12:07):

It’s never the athlete’s fault. It’s always all our fault.

Sevan Matossian (12:09):



I click the link I sent her and see which studio it opens up in. I’m opening up another Streamy Yard window. Oh shit. Hi. Hey, can you hear me? I sent you the wrong link. Could No, it’s totally my fault. Could you click the other link? I’m so sorry. I just saw the text. I was sitting here cursing your name. I take everything back. No, I wasn’t. Do you see the other link? It’s right below where I said 26 minutes. Oh, son of a bitch. Man. I’m a bad person. Hold on. Oh, and you just sent me a picture. Okay. You’re a good dude. Oh, here. Here’s what I can do. I’m going to send the, can you see the private chat? Oh, okay. Now I’m going to put something in it. Can you click that link and then after you open that link, come back and close this other link. Oh, you’re a good dude. Just wrapped this. Alright, shit. Alright. Kenneth, the lap heavy. You blew it. Yeah. And then you can close this other window. Oh, you’re awesome. Alright. Hi.

Alexis Raptis (13:46):

Sorry, I should have messaged you earlier.

Sevan Matossian (13:48):

No, that’s so lame. So you’ve been, yeah, you’ve been sitting there 14 minutes.

Alexis Raptis (13:53):

Yeah, it’s okay.

Sevan Matossian (13:59):

Hey, we had you scheduled a couple of weeks ago and it was on a Labor day or something, right?

Alexis Raptis (14:06):

Something like that.

Sevan Matossian (14:09):

Oh, people are saying they can’t hear you.

Alexis Raptis (14:12):

Oh really? Lemme

Sevan Matossian (14:14):

See if I can turn her volume up.

Alexis Raptis (14:17):

I can take my headphones out too.

Sevan Matossian (14:24):

How about that Now can you hear

Alexis Raptis (14:27):

Now? Can you hear me?

Sevan Matossian (14:29):

Oh, it is. Is it still low, Caleb?

Caleb Beaver (14:33):

It’s better than it was

Sevan Matossian (14:35):

Here. I’m going to edit. I’m going to turn off the automatic. I’m going to turn her full blast and see what happens. So I think we had you scheduled, but then you had training at your, the gym was going to close early and so you had to go in the morning and train and you couldn’t come on the show.

Alexis Raptis (14:50):

Oh yeah, I remember that. Can they hear me now?

Sevan Matossian (14:55):

I think so. We’ll find out in a second. Jake Chapman. Sounds like a phone call from the 1990s.

Alexis Raptis (15:02):

Hold on.

Sevan Matossian (15:07):

Okay. What about that? Yeah. Hold. Yeah, hold. Yeah, there we go. I think that’s better. Is that what happened? That’s what happened, right? Does that sound familiar?

Alexis Raptis (15:22):

Yeah, that sounds familiar.

Sevan Matossian (15:24):

Okay, good. Okay, now here we go. Now we’re good. Do you hear me okay?

Alexis Raptis (15:28):


Sevan Matossian (15:31):

The last time you were on the show, you’ve been on the show twice, right?

Alexis Raptis (15:35):

I think so. Yeah. It’s been a while though.

Sevan Matossian (15:38):

Yeah. And then yesterday you were on Brian Spin’s podcast and then you’re doing this one, then you’re doing Pedro’s, you’re on a tour. I know.

Alexis Raptis (15:45):

I’m just busting them all out today I feel

Sevan Matossian (15:48):

Like. Do you have a book you’re selling or something?

Alexis Raptis (15:52):

No. I feel like I’ve been asked. You asked me, I feel like months ago and when I’m games training, I have no energy to do this kind of stuff. And so I guess I’ve just put it off until the off season.

Sevan Matossian (16:11):

Alexis, you officially influenced me. That tear suit you had in your day in the life video. I had to have it. I just got it. I love it. Hey, was that a one piece?

Alexis Raptis (16:23):

Yeah. Yeah. The ping pong? I think

Sevan Matossian (16:25):

So. I showed my wife that too, and that’s crazy that Jacqueline’s saying that. Thank you Jacqueline for the loot. And I show my wife that and I go, Hey dude, this is a dope suit she’s wearing. And she goes,

Alexis Raptis (16:34):

I know I love that suit and

Sevan Matossian (16:35):

My wife wants a one piece. But then she was like, why do you think I need a one piece? I’m like, my wife has a crazy physique. She doesn’t need a one piece. But I just think a one piece would be just more comfortable. You don’t got to worry about shit falling off.

Alexis Raptis (16:44):

Yeah, I agree especially,

Sevan Matossian (16:46):

And it’s a great suit and it’s still attractive and it’s not like an old lady suit, but it’s still a one piece. You don’t have to worry about shit falling off.

Alexis Raptis (16:54):

Yeah, I like that suit.

Sevan Matossian (16:56):

Oh yeah. Good find. Yeah. And you look like you know what you’re doing in it. Were you a swimmer?

Alexis Raptis (17:02):

No, I wasn’t a swimmer. I did diamond for a couple years.

Sevan Matossian (17:06):

Yeah, that suit makes you look like you’re a swimmer. You know what I mean? Someone puts on certain clothes and you’re like, oh, they’re professional. Yeah, you look like you’re ready to go.

Alexis Raptis (17:12):

Well, honestly, it just makes me, I feel warmer going into the cold punch.

Sevan Matossian (17:18):

Oh, cheater.

Alexis Raptis (17:20):

Yeah, exactly.

Sevan Matossian (17:24):

You’re pulling out of rogue because you haven’t been able to train because you’re sick is the first thing you think. Like, oh shit, that’s a lot of money I’m passing by.

Alexis Raptis (17:35):


Sevan Matossian (17:36):

Yeah. That’s what I would think. That’s what I thought. Not like, oh, I feel sorry for her or that I’m like, oh, her poor bank account.

Alexis Raptis (17:42):

No, I mean the whole experience of it, it’s kind of like a mini games in a way, and the best in the world are there. I wanted to go and get better at some things that I made mistakes on at the games and show that off at Rogue. And I was really excited to train with Travis and compete with him. And the money is, I think about the money too, because the money’s great, but it’s really just the whole experience that you miss out on. That sucks. But I mean, it’s there every year. So there’s always next year,

Sevan Matossian (18:29):

Let me throw some more salt in the wound. And you are, I would say that there’s no homeostasis. There’s two kinds of athletes. There’s athletes that we’re watching ascending and then there’s athletes that we’re watching wane, right? So there’s ones we’re seeing like climb, let’s say from the boys Jho Jelly Hosty, yellow Hoste, the giant dude from Europe.

Alexis Raptis (18:57):

Oh no, actually, I dunno who that,

Sevan Matossian (18:59):

Okay, well there’s this dude from Europe and he just showed up on the scene and he trains with Andre Hue and it’s like, oh shit, we’re going to watch him ascend. Or someone like, gee, I’m just talking about on the men’s side. Now we know they’re going to come to the games and we’re interested to see them ascend. And then there’s other athletes who’ve been there fucking forever and we’re just like, Hey, are they going to make the cut Jason Smith? Or we know Noah is already talking about retiring before the games even starts. So we’re just wondering where he is going to play. We’re kind of watching them, their star fade. I’m not saying in a bad or a good way, but Alexis Raptors is like a rapidly shooting star in a space with a lot of rapidly shooting stars. There’s you, there’s Haley, there’s Emma Carey, there’s Emma Lawson. I mean, you guys have some shit that we all want to see. Like, oh my God, this is a, and there’s that too, right? It’s not like you were a space shuttle launch that we’re not getting to see everyone gathered around. And I really do feel, to be completely honest, to even throw more salt in your womb, don’t shed a tear after that video that dude made to you. What’s his name? Captain c p t or something.

Alexis Raptis (20:03):

Oh yeah.

Sevan Matossian (20:05):

People fell in love with you, man. You were all the buzz. You were all the buzz. You are all the buzz. And then you had that crazy moment at the games at the

Alexis Raptis (20:15):


Sevan Matossian (20:17):

No. Well that too, but when you were on stage and your dad was in the audience crying and Dave and Dawn and I was crying, that was some crazy shit.

Alexis Raptis (20:27):

Yeah. Oh my gosh. My dad, when I was home, he watches your podcast and he saw when you were talking about seeing him in the crowd and you guys hugging and then you said something about him being your hero or something like that. And he watched it a hundred times.

Sevan Matossian (20:45):

Yeah. Dude, what a stud. Look what he raised. Look at you. You’re so awesome.

Alexis Raptis (20:50):

Thank you.

Sevan Matossian (20:51):

Yeah, you’re like a parent’s dream dude. You’re amazing. You’re a class act. You’re a hard worker. Yeah, you come across so authentic. It’s cool. Sorry, I shouldn’t use that word.

Alexis Raptis (21:00):

Thank you. I appreciate that. That’s like, that means a world. But yeah, I think I feel like I’ve been in the space for a while, but it really does feel like the past two years it’s kind of just kicked off and it’s just like, I mean, I want to compete for as long as I can. I want to compete for years and years and years. So it’s very exciting. It sucks. Yeah, I want to show off and perform and show everyone how hard I’ve been working, but I think it’s going to make it a little bit sweeter holding off and having a whole off season to just build that fire and then going into the next year, just being so ready to go. That’s kind of my motivation right now.

Sevan Matossian (21:48):

How long do you have to not train for the machine to start losing its maximum potential?

Alexis Raptis (22:02):


Sevan Matossian (22:02):

It happening quickly for you to show up somewhere? A hundred percent.

Alexis Raptis (22:08):


Sevan Matossian (22:08):

You didn’t get to train one week before, would that hurt you two weeks before? Would that hurt you three weeks before?

Alexis Raptis (22:15):

Yeah. I mean, I would say if I didn’t train for two weeks out from the games, I’d probably go into it feeling a little off. But I will say I feel like I can get really fit in 30 days a month, which I would say for the games this year I was two months out is when things got really, really serious and good. And it was just two months of crazy training. But after a week and then pushing two weeks of taking time off, I start to not feel great. Yeah,

Sevan Matossian (22:55):

You think you’re losing that edge, that super high end percentages start coming off of your game. Maybe fifth place finishes now are now ninth or 10th place finishes.

Alexis Raptis (23:09):

I don’t know. I feel like it’s more mental if you don’t go hard for two weeks and then you go into the games and you’re going as hard as you can. It’s like that mental part of it of, oh shit, I haven’t felt this in two weeks. It’s intimidating a little. It’s more mental. I don’t think you really lose fitness though.

Sevan Matossian (23:32):

Mary Monsour from tow spacers. Oh, mine smelled better already from yesterday. God, they smelled horrible when I took them off yesterday. She posted on Instagram, meaning Alexis rap this, that she’s been sick and pulled out of rogue. If I was a good interview, I would’ve laid the foundation out, but I just think it’s me and Alexis just chatting. I forget you guys are there. Jay Harle, more of the engine suffers. Does he know what he’s talking about as opposed

Alexis Raptis (24:03):

To strength? I don’t know. I would say I can make myself hurt very, very bad if that’s what he means.

Sevan Matossian (24:18):

Let her talk. No, don’t tell me what to do. Let me talk. So what happened? Why did you pull out of Rogue?

Alexis Raptis (24:31):

I went on a trip and you had to be very careful about the food and the water that we were drinking. And

Sevan Matossian (24:41):

Where’d you go in Mississippi?

Alexis Raptis (24:42):

I went to Bali.

Sevan Matossian (24:44):


Alexis Raptis (24:45):

Yeah. And I had never traveled somewhere that far. I never traveled anywhere where I couldn’t brush my teeth in the sink water. I had to use a water bottle. And so I don’t know exactly what I ate or drank. That started the whole thing. But a couple days after I got there, started to not feel very well, started having diarrhea and it started and then it just wouldn’t stop. And I was there for almost two weeks and ruin

Sevan Matossian (25:24):

Ruining. Your trip wouldn’t stop or just like, oh shit, I got to run to the bathroom. I’m not going anywhere far from the bathroom.

Alexis Raptis (25:30):

Yeah, I mean it was just like, I was so excited for this trip and I didn’t really even get to truly enjoy it because I felt horrible the whole time and I was trying to

Sevan Matossian (25:41):

Train nauseous. What do you mean horrible? I have diarrhea all the time. I don’t feel horrible. I enjoy it.

Alexis Raptis (25:46):

Ew. No. Yes, that. But it was nausea, so nauseous and bloated. I’ve never felt that before, but it’s a thing. A lot of people, everyone I talk to there says when you come, you get, it’s called Bali Belly


And basically it feels like your stomach is full of food. So full of food. And I hadn’t eaten anything and anything I would put in my body, it felt like it just was huge. But I was tiny. I was losing weight, so it was super uncomfortable. I was nauseous all the time. I was trying to eat. But it’s hard to find foods that I’m used to because everything is spiced up and it’s not cooked in healthy oils. It’s cooked in this palm oil. And so I just really struggled to even eat. And I was there until I left the 10th. I got back the 22nd and then I planned. I was still planning on doing rogue. I got back and it was like my body just shut down and got way worse. And then going into it, obviously you all saw the post, I have colitis. So when you go somewhere like that, even if you’re healthy and healthy, people go and they get sick. And then there’s someone like me who already has a stomach issue and they go, my stomach was just a mess. So got back, thought I’d be able to get it under control, and it’s just taken a lot longer than I thought it would. I had to get on antibiotics that made me feel horrible. And so I just

Sevan Matossian (27:35):

Which antibiotics did you get on?

Alexis Raptis (27:37):

Oh, I have find the text. There’s two of ’em. One of ’em, I forget the name. It started with an M and it was hardcore. It was for hardcore bacterial infections. What they thought I got from Bali. And that one, the side effects were, oh my gosh, it just felt like I was going to throw up all day long, horrible diarrhea, headache. That’s just pounding. I just had no energy to Yes. Yeah, that one.

Sevan Matossian (28:12):

I wonder which one. Danielle took it the game. She said she took one. She had to be on antibiotics the week before the games. Danielle, Brandon, she said it fucked her up. And I was like, yeah, I keep hearing that.

Alexis Raptis (28:21):

Yeah, I would go on a walk. I was trying to move and going on a walk would just destroy me. I had no energy. Yeah, it was just nuts. Even if I wanted to train, even if I wanted to eat, I could not physically get my body to do it. So yeah, I could show up to rogue and not be my best self. And who knows, maybe I could take 10th place, whatever. I don’t want to go and do that. I want to go and show my best self. So my coach and I made the decision, let’s just take this time, get healthy, not rush the healing process because in the back of my head I’m stressed. I have Rogan at the end of the month, I have to get back, I have to get back. And that was just stressing me out even more. So once I made that decision, I kind of felt a little bit better because it didn’t feel like I had this weight on my back like a timeline. So yeah, made the decision and I know it’s the right decision. It’s just still sucks and I am just annoyed. I was just very, very excited for this competition.

Sevan Matossian (29:37):

Yeah, dude, it sucks. Who’s your coach?

Alexis Raptis (29:40):

Sevan Matossian (29:42):
