I climbed the rope without legs twice as high as I thought I could today. I’m pretty excited. All 12 feet is my goal by September.

And a forward roll press to stand on a panel mat. I want a straddle press to handstand from a sit, but I don’t know if that’s gonna happen.

Keep in mind I hate rope climbs with a burning passion. They are pretty much my least favorite strength ever. Them and chin-ups (fingers towards body), any strength involving holding a position on bars, and upright mountain climbers.

Oh well, I want this. I’ma do it.

I got a job!

I’m a coach kids ages 5-7 and 3-5 on Wednesday and Saturday. So now I’m at my gym everyday except for Sunday and my Saturday practice has been cut from 4 hours to 1.5. But ehh, I make kids happy, I earn money, I get job experience, and now I have a job history so yay!

Just thought I’d update ya. :)

Look at me finally doing real gymnastics! ‘Bout time too haha!

Not the best one I did today, but its the one my coach recorded. Today was the first day I did bail hands by myself and yesterday was actually the first day I did them ever. They’re fun!

We call that mat stack behind the low bar “The Tower”, “The Tower of Terror”, or “Self-Preservation Station”. Not because you’ll get hurt doing it, but because if you knock it over you have a rope climb.

My last Coastal Gymnastics Academy banquet. Ellie and Mik, I don’t know where I’d be without you two. You’re the greatest coaches and second parents I could ever ask for. I love you guys so much! ♥

"Pain is temporary. Fear is irrelevant. If you have a dream, the only thing that matters is how much you want it." Senior Presentation; 2014 SoCal State Championships I was told to quit, but I didn’t. I refused to give up. I trained my butt off and earned it. I love gymnastics too much to let injury stop me. Without my amazing teammates and coaches I’d never be where I am today. I cannot thank you all enough for supporting me. I am honored to be part of Coastal Gymnastics and call you all my family. ♥

After almost two years without competing I’m finally getting back into it just in time for state and graduation from high school.

My gym hosted this small meet this past weekend and I had the privilege to compete in it with my teammates (those girls in the black swirl leotards that are absolutely gorgeous!). I’m still healing from ankle surgery last summer, but I have a new found faith in my gymnastics and myself after this experience and I cannot wait to compete for an NAIGC gymnastics team next year (given that my university of choice has a team).

The song I used in the background was Ships In The Night by Mat Kearney. This song has deep meaning for me and using it in this video is extremely significant for me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Thank you so much to my Coastal Gymnastics Academy family for helping me recover from tearing the posterior tibial tendon in my ankle.

This past year and a half has been difficult and I know that without your love, support, and training I never would have been able to come back and compete again.

I love you all dearly and cannot thank you enough for never giving up on me!  I LOVE YOU GUYS TO THE END OF THE UNIVERSE AND BACK ELLIE, MIK, AND ALL THE GIRLS!!! ♥♥♥♥♥

Pain is temporary. It may last for a minute, or an hour, or a day,  or even a year! But eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit however, it will last forever. ★ (at Coastal Gymnastics Academy)
