American Nationals tournament was today
There was nobody for me to compete against. I was the only female purple belt registered at all, and other than me, there was a brown belt woman, a black belt woman, and I think two each of blue and white belt women, out of a couple hundred competitors. So I got my money back, which is a good thing.
I went anyway to cheer some teammates on. People did really well, and Johnny gave Bernie his brown belt and Noah his purple after they won their divisions. Congratulations to them!
I'm trying to think of any notable stuff that went on. But it was a typical tournament. I didn't take any pictures. Alicia took her usual bunch, though, so I'll check them out when they're up.
It was a long day. I was glad I wasn't competing. I don't think I would have represented well. And I'm excited to be taking a couple days off, though I'll still help Johnny teach on Mon and Wed. Now that I've finally decided to do it, I think it will be just what I need to shake the doldrums.
