As If There's Anything Else To Do This Weekend
The Visa (National) Championships for all things gymnastics is in Dallas this weekend. I have already hit up the Sr. Men's Prelims competition, and last night was what I've been waiting for: the ladies! You all know I'm nutso for gym, and I've had the best time nerding out already. Tonight I'm going to the Sr. Men's Finals (the muscles on these men are ridic!) and then tomorrow, AAAD Readers My Mom and Sara and I are hitting up the Jr. Women's Finals in the early afternoon. Tomorrow night is the Sr. Women's Finals, and AAAD Readers Katie and Marie will be joining us as well. I can't wait for the tributes planned for ex-Olympians, including my all-time favorite, Kim Zmeskal.
Last night, after the men's competition, I watched the online broadcast (and you can follow all the action from your sofas right here) and totally saw myself in the audience as the gymnasts were vaulting. I had on a yellow shirt. Haha.
There are a bunch of local gymnasts from WOGA competing, including the Sr. Women's 1st and 2nd place gymnasts after night one, Rebecca Bross and Ivana Hong. Go WOGA!
Without boring you all with my insanity, all I can say is, follow your dreams, kiddos!
Oh, and one last thing...remember when I met Carly and Nastia? That was awesome.
Have a GOLDEN weekend,
