Beginning of day 5--Saturday, September 1, 2007
Today’s the first time I have awakened before my alarm. I was up kind of late (1ish) and popped awake at 6ish. So I’ve been puttering around, chatting with my sister, texting with Steve72, packing for the day. Since it’s Saturday, we’re probably going to have a bunch of training partners. Johnny’s coming back (hooray!) and maybe bringing a few people, I saw Cub Swanson in the gym the other day, Brian’s coming tomorrow, and there’s a whole list of others. Only one other woman, Ginele, who finished second in Tara and Crystina’s division. But I got to roll with Darren, cornered Matt to get him to agree to roll with me, and will probably hit up more of the smaller guys, particularly Ricky, and Alberto, if he comes. Ricky and Alberto are around 154, and the cutoff for my division is 158, so that could be perfect.
And then in the afternoon is a BBQ at Chris’, where we will watch the footage of our matches. I don’t know how we’re going to get through all of it; there are about 12 of us and each of us had at least 2 and as many as 5 matches. I think Jason has watched it all, though, so maybe he’ll be able to help us figure out one or two for each person to focus on.
Feeling a little achy today, but overall pretty good. Felicia, Lisa, and I will head over to the gym in time to get in The Pod before training starts, and then I’ll hope to have a few minutes to post some of this text!
