I just want you to know….. that I judged for the first time ever for 13.1, and I ended up judging like 15 people over the course of a few days. HOLY MOLY. As soon as I judged one person, I had others requesting me to judge them, and more requests, and facebook messages, and texts, and waiting lists, for people who wanted me to judge them and I couldn’t figure out why!!
Then I thought about my awesome experience with you and the Zoo peeps (Sept 2012) and it made me realize why!! I judged my people the same way you judged me.. you didn’t just stand there and count for me like you could’ve just done.. noooo.. you pushed me, encouraged me, and gave me the strength and motivation to keep going.. so that’s of course what I did, too!!! I yelled at them, cheered them on, celebrated every heavy rep, and every additional burpee they didn’t think they had in them, and in turn, I got lots of sweaty hugs and shaky high fives and breathless thank yous from the floor. In fact.. here’s a picture of me doing an imaginary snatch pull while I was judging my friend Emily.. I laugh every time I see this, because I’m literally willing her to get her lifts. haha
So THANK YOU for being so awesome! You will always have a special place in my heart for the way that you pushed me at Rex Rumble. You changed my life, lady. 🙂 ♥ ♥ ♥
