So here's what happened- I signed up and completed the qualifying WODS ("Workout of the Day") for the upcoming fitness event, Wodapalooza. This included 6 WODS in 3 weeks, video recording of all workouts, many bloopers because I'm horrible on camera, all for fun.
The goal in signing up wasn't to qualify- it was to gain experience, have fun, workout, and get better. I didn't think I stood any chance in qualifying, especially in seeing what other athletes had also signed up, but lo and behold, somehow, someway, I snuck in there and qualified! WTF?!
For those that don't know much about Wodapalooza, it's an annual competition in Miami, FL. Last year, there were about 850 athletes competing in different divisions, 8 WODS over the course of 3 days, and some of the best athletes in the world: Sam Briggs, Talayna Fortunado, Kenny Leverich, Noah Ohlsen... just to name a few!
While I'll be competing in a COMPLETELY different category than THOSE athletes, I am SO proud and honored to have earned- not signed up- earned my ticket to this event. There's no doubt I qualified by the skin of my teeth, but that's what makes this so SWEET!
So the tough part: $$$...
Let's be honest, asking for money is awkward and slightly embarressing. I feel like I'm pandhandling for a vacation, but an opportunity like this can be once in a blue moon! $1...$5... a hug... a smile... I'll take it all! Anything helps!
I can't garuntee a spot on the podium - or even a top 50 spot, but what I CAN do is garuntee that I will do my best and have a good time!!
