More to come tomorrow night; after all the scores are up, and everything is finalized. For tonight, I have to comment on the mind-blowing coolness of the fact that 4 out of the top 5 women in the Southeast Region are muhfuckin’ Outlaws. No big deal, right?
This weekend I got the chance to coach our very own Talayna Fortunato in the National Weightlifting Championships. Being in the same room as coaches Glenn Pendlay, Kyle Pierce, Greg Everett, and John Coffee was a little intimidating, to say the least. The fact that T had a recent injury added to the nerves of the afternoon. T, however, was super close to PRs on the snatch and clean and jerk, and had an incredible showing for someone who didn’t even know what a snatch was 2 1/2 years ago. I would like to thank Talayna for all her hard work over the last six months and for giving me the opportunity to share a room with some of my coaching heroes.
I got the opportunity to hang out with one of the coolest/greatest exercisers in the history of exercising – none other than the 2010 Games Champion and 2011 Games Second Place Finisher, Kristan Clever. Here is the video interview:
