My post-competition pedicure. Note the chipping and the return of the mat burn.
Me with Alicia, a friend from the forum who is a tough blue belt and who takes fantastic photos at all the local grappling events. Check her website out at http://www.aliciaphotos.com.
Me, Giselle, and Heidi, the third place finisher:
Giselle, Catryne, and me. Catryne is a blue belt with Rodrigo Medeiros, so she is Giselle's teammate. She took first in her division.
