Hi! I’m still around… I promise.

Confession –  I have been terrible about keeping up with this blog (as if that isn’t completely obvious). For those of you that follow me on Facebook, you know that I’m able to share pithy, inspirational posts but I struggle to sit down at the computer and write meaningfully. There are all sorts of reasons for this (technology issues, graduate school PTSD, training) but they merely excuses.

I’ve had some great ideas for blog posts in the last several months, so my goal is to either write them or video them and share. Several are time contextual, so I’m thinking I’ll back date them (such as my “Training Like I’ve Received the Call” post) in an effort to avoid confusion. I’ve learned a lot on my journey to American Ninja Warrior and I want to share it with you all.

Mainly, I need to learn to put my butt in the chair and WRITE (a lesson many struggle with). Wish me luck! I hope see a lot more of y’all.

American Ninja Warrior, Here I Come!

Because I am ridiculously tenacious, I have applied to American Ninja Warrior again. I’m feeling so much more prepared this year than last. Last year I went in with the mindset that it would be a hoot and a good way to raise awareness for Lyme Disease. This year I am going in with the mindset of being a real competitor.

In addition to doing this for myself, I am also doing this for all my fellow warriors! When I want to give up, your support carries me through. It helps me dig down deep to find the strength to persevere. I know that I have to keep fighting because you all are out there, rooting for me and if I give up, you might give up too. We’ve created this beautiful feedback loop of support!

(Now that the taping of the show is in the can, I can share my application video with you)
