Hey GymDawg fans!
We just finished up one of our best weeks in the gym yet! Five days in a row of great gymnastics and great attitudes - we are just that much closer of achieving our goal of going to Nationals this year! Everyone has been really focused, and though daily assignments are getting more and more challenging, we are all pushing through them and keeping each other motivated to get better. It is so cool to have such a close, supportive team! Every day I get more and more excited for competition season to start - I can't wait to show everyone what our team is accomplishing.
Congrats to Kelly, our Top Dawg of the week! As one of our three seniors this year, she is such an inspiration. Her smile is contagious and she really knows how to keep the team motivated. Also, her silly dancing always puts me in a great mood! I can only hope to become as great of a team leader as Kelly has been so far!
Earlier this week a couple of us went to see a Broadway musical, Spring Awakening, downtown with our roommates from the volleyball team. It was so much fun! It was nice to get dressed up and go out off of campus for a night. Seattle is such a beautiful city with so much great entertainment to offer! I am so glad that I chose to come to UW and stay in Seattle - it's probably the best decision I've ever made.
Just five short weeks until our Intrasquad in November - I hope all you fans are getting pumped up!!
