MONDAY - JUNE 28th
The whole team finally made it in after a few flight delays and we're settling in nicely. It's not too hard when you're a block from the beach and it's warm and sunny!
All these super bad ass ladies will be fighting on Thursday.
Susie is cutting weight, hard to make the under 129 weight class. When she first started with the team she was 142. She has a few pounds to go before the Wednesday weigh-ins, but we're sure she can make it! After training at my coach's school, Sunday, he decided to not have me fight at the AAU Nationals and put all our efforts into preparing for USA Nationals on Sunday.
The first 2 spots qualify for the 2012 Olympic trials and the first 4 spots qualify for Pan Am team trials and the 2011 National team.
AAU Nationals would have been great to compete in but, doesn't get you closer to the Olympics whether you win Nationals or make the AAU team.
We will have pictures up shortly... having trouble with finding internet service and downtime to load everything up.
Talk to you tomorrow.
