I met my husband on plenty of fish. I was looking for a booty call. I didn't want to get married or have kids. Fate had another plan in mind. We met and married six weeks later and we've been married for six years and have the most awesome Ginga Ninja a mom could want.
United States Strongman was the same. I wasn't looking for commitment. I just wanted a good time! I wanted to hit it and quit it. And boom before you knew it I was all in! Equipment started multiplying at our gym like bebe's kids. I asked Jamie for a rock for Christmas and I got more than I asked for...200,220,240,275,300lbs of pure atlas stone love! My first competition was Codye McCanns Southern Belle Feb 2016 (awesome comp btw) then Nationals, then Worlds!
I had had mediocre relationships before. IFBB Pro but there's too much fake tan in that one, state and national powerlifting record holder but too much tiger balm in that one, podiumed in Crossfit but I don't wear bandanas well, Feature twirled at Kansas State University but sequins get old and played club level rugby but I don't like beer out of a boot so none of those relationships fulfilled me the way United States Strongman does!
