up lifting

Alex competed in the USA Weightlifting School Age Nationals this weekend. There were 300 kids from all over the country. She had three PRs, which was sort of amazing considering that she had to lose a pound of body weight a half hour before the weigh ins were complete (and two hours before she competed). Kudos for Steve for turning the car into a sauna and actually staying in it and staying in good humor. And we were so proud of her focus and determination. Kate and Brendan were with us, and Brendan took these photos. Next year, Atlanta! Oh, and she’s going to move up to the next weight group, so we will be sauna free.
