THIS WEEKEND: 2013 USAW American Open Championships

2013 Catalyst Athletics American Open Team (+Tamara)

I am on a plane to Dallas now to compete in the 2013 USA Weightlifting American Open Championships!  Excited/nervous/anxious.  I remember when we started our 12-week AO cycle and I can't believe it's showtime already!

This will be my first time at the American Open.  I will be lifting as part of the Catalyst Athletics Weightlifting Team.  Hoping to medal as a team this year!

You can watch us all LIVE at the Westin Dallas Park Central or via webcast at:
