Long overdue update

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!!!!
