GRIP IT, RIP IT and Click Those Ruby Red Heels.

    So this week I got my first dose of the mid west.  My kid had her USAW Youth Nationals Olympic lifting meet in St Joesph Missouri.  She absolutely killed it.  She went 6 for 6, had a clean and jerk personal record of 83lbs and won the 11 and under 35kilo class.  Her and her coach also went ALL IN and tried to take the overall 13 and under championship but fell short by only one kilo.  She came in second there. Watching her determination and drive while putting up that last clean and jerk was absolutely incredible.  Her undeniable competitive spirit was obvious and that teenage girl she was going head to head with was obviously surprised that she had my 10 year old  right there tied for first until the end.  The vibe in the sports arena was awesome and my kid fought so hard.  I'm still glowing.  That little one has more guts and drive then I could ever wish for.  I'm beyond proud. 

     The location of the meet worked out great and my daughter and I are able to visit with our BFF's all week.  We don't fly back until Wednesday. We missed them so much and this week is FANTASTIC!!  They were relocated to Kansas by the army and they got to come watch her lift.  It was nice to have some familiar faces in the stands.  I also want to thank everyone for their support from afar.  The messages and encouraging comments are much appreciated.  So many of you watched the webcast and it really means the world to us.  It's a lonely place on that platform for a kid with thousands of eyes watching.  Knowing there are a ton watching and wanting her to succeed really is nice.  THANK YOU!!!  THANK YOU!!!! THANK YOU!!!! :)

Here's a video of her at her meet. :)
