Open Nationals 2015

Jen —  July 7, 2015 — Leave a comment

Open Nationals were over in a blink of the eye. We are very proud to be part of the largest GYM Laird team to date.. fourteen strong and amazing ladies from our gym, some competing for the first time. Everyone did great, but like always, there were some disappointments. As coach explained in our pre-travel pep talk, it is very unusual to be surrounded by this many unique and truly good people; we should all enjoy each others company and above all else, have fun.

All in all, it was a great meet! We are so thankful to our amazing coach and friend for dealing with all of us and getting us prepared. We are all ready for some off season training and excited to get back in the gym after a little time off! Meet videos are in the works, we will let everyone know when they’re ready.
