Home again, home again, jiggity jig....


I'm home from my Level 2 RKC and to put everyone out of suspense, I nailed all of my Level 2 skills, except for the pull-up....almost got cha, huh? I'm way too tired to blog about it all now, but here are a few pictures from my awesome weekend and I'll be posting much much more about this amazing experience over the next week or two.






What made this experience even more memorable was that my BFF Fawn Friday (the strongest woman ever) earned her Level 2 this same weekend. Fawn threw the dbl 16kg's around like they were 8kg's...I mean what's 72lbs to a woman that deadlifts, squats and benches hundreds of pounds?










Fawn inspires me everytime I spend time with her, in many ways. I'm lucky to have her in my life, and although Mark and I stayed with Fawn and Aaron we didn't get near enough time together over the past 4 days.

I want you to know that your blog (which I found through mc's begin2dig website) single-handedly inspired me to look into kettlebells. I'm overweight myself (205 on a 5'3 frame) and as a former athlete, I never wanted to just lose weight, I wanted to be strong and lean and amazingly healthy. I wasn't sure I could ever really do it, but your blog has totally inspired me. You and your story are stunning! So thank you so much for paving the way!

Pie,

I took a lttle time off from blogging, but I'm getting back, in full force!

I've got a ton of inspired thoughts about my Level 2 experience that has changed how I see myself, my training, and my purpose.

I'll be posting my actual workouts more often (if anyone cares to try and follow). Lots more videos, and with the release of my first DVD in the next few weeks, it'll all make much more sense.

Thank you for your comment, it makes me want to spend time to keep up this blog.

I love that pull-up picture of us! I had a great time at RKC 2 with you last weekend. You are right, even though you two stayed with us, I didn't get enough time with you! I think I could see you everyday and still not get enough Tracy time. Come back soon (or i will come to visit you)!
