Somehow, I find it hard to believe that only a year ago, I was EXTREMELY pregnant. Overdue, in fact. Ticking down the days, wishing a baby girl would decide she was ready to be born. Sick and tired of carrying around a beach ball. Not even caring it was going to hurt because I was just ready to have that child.
A year later, much has changed. Mads’ birthday is nearly here, and I am definitely not carrying around a beach ball anymore. I am long, lean, and growing stronger.
This morning was Fight Gone Bad 6, and I had the honor of participating with my 5-year-old son and hundreds of other athletes at Camp Mabry.
It was an inspiring event. I wrote about the cause behind it here. In case you’re unfamiliar with the workout, it goes like this:
Fight Gone Bad
1 min max reps at each station
Sumo Deadlift High Pull (M 75# / W 55#)
Box Jumps (20″)
Push Press (M 75# / W 55#)
Row (for calories)
I still have a long way to go to break 200 reps on this workout. My count was only 164, but I did it RX, and I’m happy about that.
I’m SOOOOOOOO proud of Luke, who was one of the youngest kids competing. He did so awesome. One woman next to me was taking video of him and told me she was her box jump hero.
Thank you to all of my friends who donated to the cause. It was truly amazing.
