By far, one of the most exciting topics I can talk about is... drum roll please.. GYMNASTICS! With an absolutely amazing and rewarding 11 year gymnastics career, I can't help but get overly giddy when even hinting at the sport.
Who didn't get excited to see the Fierce Five flipping and twisting all over the Summer Olympics this past year?! Gymnastics taught me more than just how to do the splits or flip across a 4" wide beam with no hands. This sport pushes you both mentally and physically. It challenges your limits and pushes you even beyond your own expectations. Not only do gymnast learn dedication, determination and self discipline, but they learn the beauty of loyalty and camaraderie.
Countless sprained ankles, 3 major back injuries, torn rotator cuff and a broken hand.. I'm considered one of the lucky ones. I can't even count how many of my teammates have rods in their foot or torn meniscus or ACLs. Even with all the punishments of climbing the rope or pushups until your arms give out.. I wouldn't trade that part of my life for anything in the world.
Now pushing 29, I still feel connected to the sport and am happy to say that I am still shocked at what my body can do. Competing in fitness competitions has allowed me to dig up that old muscle memory and still flip around in a way too tight costume flipping my fingers and pointing my toes. Now the next day I may feel like I just got ran over by the bus.. but that's besides the point :)
