Mike and I, and my in-laws went to Phoenix about two weeks ago now (I know, I’m a little late on the post) to support Mike at a power lifting competition, his first competition too! My parents watched the kiddos, so we made a little vacation out of it.
First, the competition:
I was sooooo out of my comfort zone! I don’t really go to gyms, and I didn’t do sports too much (maybe once or twice) growing up. So, walking into a gym full of people in singlets was weird for me, but I was here to support my hubby, and he was IN HIS ELEMENT! The camaraderie between the competitors was incredible and so encouraging, that really broke down any walls of awkwardness. I ended up having a great time, and, more importantly, so did Mike. 🙂
We had a great time together, with Mike’s parents, and a little alone time without the babies.
Mike is even looking to doing another competition in February (this one will be closer to home). So, he definitely had a good time 😉
