World Highland Games Championships

I went to Arizona this weekend to compete in the world highland games. I got second place behind Summer Pierson a great thrower in track and field and of course the highland games. Third place went to Lacy Johnson a great woman who helped me get a personal record in the weight for height of 17 feet. Thank you Lacy!

Here is a link you can look at to see all my throwing marks at the games and where everyone ranked.

My parents were able to make the trip and support me in the games, it was also my Dads birthday on Sunday when I competed. Thank you Mom and Dad for making the trip and being the best parents anyone could have. Also thank you for the great video and pictures, you guys are awesome.

I had a great time meeting new people and seeing old friends. I got to see my best friend Becky Potter who I had not seen in about 6 years. That I think is what really made my weekend, seeing her and Tina. Thank you to them for letting me crash at there house and eat there food. You guys are the best!

This was the best group of woman I have competed against since I have started throwing in the games 2 years ago. I hope to make it back next year and bring home the world title for my family and friends.

A huge thank you to my Boyfriend Dan for putting this video together, I know you wanted to be there. Next year I will have you there on the side line as my coach. You did a great job with this video and I love you with all my heart, thank you for your support.
