There is nothing so sure
as feeling your own strength.

There is nothing as thrilling
as seeing strength grow -
either your own or
that of one you love.

Strength is overcoming obstacles.
Defeating yourself before you begin -
That is weakness.

Victory at Redwood Empire Championships

The long-sought 60KG clean and jerk! First place in masters women! Competed alongside Jim Schmitz and Chip Conrad. Hung with Butch Curry and still more awesome Bodytribers. Hit the beach after and saw the Golden Gate bridge for the first time. A great experience all the way around!
