November was full of firsts and it started with my first team competition and a 2hr drive through a snowy mountain.
This competition was like nothing I'd ever done before with stadium seating,1000's of people, fancy announcers, an athlete holding area and a great partner.
We called ourselves the Sweat Angels and had the best time. I was so worried about doing a partner competition because I've never had anyone counting on me to do well in the fitness realm and my teammate was way stronger and faster.
But when it was go time, we both discovered our strengths and weaknesses and I was able to hold my own. We came in 22nd overall but 10th in the hardest, last and longest programmed workout. It was soo fun being able to compete at that level, hold my own and watch everyone else from our gym kick booty.
It was such a great day and I'm very very happy that I didn't let my fears keep me from participating. As for the snowy mountain drive... It was beautiful but I was glad to be home safe!
Lesson learned: Don't let fear stand in the way of trying something new!
