Smile Participated in my 1st meet! Ohio State Championships!

To anyone even remotely contemplating participating in a meet, DO IT!!!!
It was an awesome experience.
I have been working with Coach Mark Cannella and the Columbus Weightlifting Club off and on for a little while now. The Ohio State meet was coming up and everyone kept asking if I was going to do it. I said "no but I will come and watch". The main reason I said no was because I was scared. Finally one day Mark asked if I was going to do it and the word "yes" slipped out.
It was nerve racking for sure. But in the end I tied my PR in the Snatch at 80kg and although it wasn't official, some press out, I finally got 100kg over head!!! I have been working on 100kg overhead ever since I started messing with the O-lifts, seriously, a little over a year ago. Jerks whip my butt.
