I have to admit. I’m stumbling to the finish line here. I don’t know who I’ve forgotten and for that I apologize. Look for one last post on a rare Saturday night. I’ve two more gyms to haul to the Civic Center and my car just died. Raining meet pouring. Here we go.
We’ve got three people that I know who will have competed in all four of the TJ’s Games and this kid is one of them. She’s a mother of two who is also a lawyer. She has a ridiculous motor and has worked on her weaknesses since the good old days. You can find her with a huge smile on her face every time she’s in the gym. Great person to coach and a great person to have in the club.
Showed up back in the old days. She works her ass off. Period. Loves to compete, loves to get uncomfortable, loves to train. When I think of someone who has worked for their goals she is top of the list. She is also one of the three who have competed all four years. In the sweatbox of OG in 2009, the rain of 2010 in Novato, the chalk/sweat bath of 2011 and now the Big Hall of 2012. This could be her year and I’ll be screaming for her.
Swagger, confidence and balls. That’s Whitney Ball. She walks around in the gym like she eats barbells for brunch. And the Games? Pffft! You’ve got to be kidding me. She’s already called her spot on the podium. I heard she’s been holding a 35lb between her knees while doing no handed muscle ups. I heard she’s been tearing phone books in half with one hand. I heard Joe Ball went to the Far East last week just to get her unicorn tears that she brushes her teeth with at night. You should be afraid, very afraid.
If you guessed Ham as the third, fourth timer you would be correct. Ham is the captain of Corte Madera. He rallies the troops, is the old sage of how to position yourself so as not to get your nose clipped by someone’s rope with 15 people doing Annie in CM. His work ethic is tremendous. Slowly but surely has PR’d just about every thing, every year. Consistent and methodical with his approach to his workouts. Glad to have him as the guardian of all things CM.
