Goal Completed

First off thank you to my girls. I truly love appreciate and value you girls Rajah and Jess, and our friendship. I made a goal this year to not only do more competitions, but to podium. Never did I think I'd actually do it. And I will admit. I didn't want to look at the leaderboard because we'd stayed in 3rd place ALL day out of all the teams. So I wanted to wait for the announcement. So I did. BUT I overheard a girl make a phone call and say hey we made 3rd I need you to get my kids. My heart sank. But I knew I gave my all, and so did my girls, so I would have to be ok and accept whatever the outcome. So I walked over to my husband and just stood there. Laid my head on his chest and tried to relax. He asked if I was ok, and despite wanting to be strong, tears ran down my face I just cried and said no, this is all I wanted and I worked so hard for this. THEN to find out we got second, was like WOW! I'm so grateful to the people I have on my side, Coaches and friends. Because I didn't get here alone. So many people had a role in my success. And for that, I am forever grateful. Goal Completed. 

Thank you for having an amazing organization. Supporting such an amazing cause makes it all worth it.

I had an absolute blast competing at Girls Gone Rx

"I had an absolute blast competing at Girls Gone Rx Baton Rouge. I paired up with two amazing, strong, beautiful women and competed alongside many other women just like us. This competition was not only fun and challenging, but raised money for a noble cause. Several woman close to me have suffered through breast cancer. Many others continue their fight each and every day. To be able to perform in an exclusively female environment and continuously battle our way to the podium was truly inspiring. Women everywhere should celebrate how beautiful, strong, and courageous they are no matter the challenges they face. We will definitely be back next year to throw down with some of the best women I know. God Bless!"

Thanks again
