In the spirit of the Dark Ages, the Calgary Outdoor Club presents the Monastic Self-Flagellation Olympics, a sport dedicated to spiritual enlightenment and throwing off the chains of Consumerist Guilt.

Feeling bad about eating that triple bacon cheeseburger with onion rings while children are starving in Africa? Relax and chow down as you will be able to assuage your guilty feelings with specific techniques perfected from 140 AD to 1024 AD in Europe.

Self-flagellation is both aerobic and a way to reduce calories through blood loss. It's also a social activity as it gives you something tangible to complain about to your friends.

Remember: if you have had a good self-flagellation, nothing worse can happen to you for the rest of the day.

Whip, thorny branches, band aids and polka music.
Horsehair robe, flowers and pointy shoes.
