It's the Final Countdown!

A quick post to update you all on the past few weeks before I do my usual last-possible-minute packing for tomorrow morning's flight.  I've got a lovely mini-vacation in NYC planned, where I get to hang out with this cutie pie and his mom, enjoy a mini-reunion with a bunch of fellow Spring 2011 teacher training graduates, do lots of yoga...oh, and perform on this stage in front of a couple hundred people for three minutes. Hey, I figure if I fall over and make a hilarious fool of myself, it's only three minutes.  I'll score my competition video to this song and just enjoy my time in NYC.

"The healthiest competition occurs when average people win by putting in above-average effort."

So January 28th has come and gone, and you're probably wondering how the yoga competition went...but with a team of badass yogis like these, how could it go wrong?

COMPETITION WEEK! started off with me finally, finally grabbing my hands regularly in guillotine, thanks in part to advice from Zeb, from former competitor and erstwhile Bikram Yoga Cleveland student Becky, and also just me doing it over and over and over and over again.  So I was feeling pretty good about competition, except for, as you know, my inability to consistently land Standing Head to Knee.
