All Over Red Rover
That's it, the Open is done for another year. I decided last night to go back to the box to cheer on a few of the other girls as they did 14.5. I was asked to judge while I was there and feel blessed to be able to do so. What I witnessed were 2 women who had to overcome self doubt and were so far from their comfort zone both mentally and physically. There were tears and failed reps but they picked up the bar and they thrustered and burpeed until that final rep. I had goosebumps each time they brought themselves back from the brink of giving up and one of the girls would give a warrior yell each time she pushed that weight overhead. I hope they realise that what they did last night was incredibly inspirational.
