Seriously… it has been MONTHS since I’ve been on here. You know, life just takes over and what once was a fun little hobby becomes something you have to find time for and time is not something I have a lot of these days. BUT… SO much has happened since APRIL. I still can’t believe that was my last post. APRIL? How!?! I don’t even know where to start. I’ll try to keep it short. Three (yes 3) National competitions. First one was Junior Nationals in Chicago June 13-14
I ended up not placing, but had a fantastic time and gained some great National stage experience. I felt great though I knew what changes I needed to make for the next one… so I started working my butt off for USA’s July 25-26 in Las Vegas
I ended up placing 15th, only the top 15 actually place in National competitions… so I BARELY placed! BUT… I placed 😉 Again, I had some final tweaking to do and one more show on my brain. I was turning 35 on August 26th, 4 days before North Americans in Pittsburgh where I qualified to compete in the Open and Masters for TWO chances at a Pro card. Why not! Let’s go… So finally my 3rd competition of the summer was August 30th, North American Championships in Pittsburgh
First class I came out in was the Open class. I was shocked when I was in the first call outs. And even more shocked when I was placed right near the middle. I knew I was 1st or 2nd place. Next class was Masters… where again I was surprised to get called out in the first call outs and placed in the middle once again. I ended up taking 2nd place in BOTH classes just missing my PRO card GAH! I was SO close. TOO close. 🙂 but I had the best time. Met the most amazing people, was invited to do a fun interview with bodymorphpros.com; which you can view on youtube (I’ll try to post it later) and cannot wait for the next National show NPC National Bodybuilding Championships in Miami on November 21-22. Pro card I am coming for you!!!!
