It’s a little bragging moment on the blog…
My friend Karen and I have been going to the local Crossfit together. Yesterday morning’s WOD (workout of the day) included a total of 30 handstand pushups—and I did them! It looked something like this, but without the little helper person and a much cuter outfit.

I would like to strongly thank the ½ year that I took tumbling/gymnastics when I was little, my ballet training, but mostly the dedication I’ve put on my yoga mat this year. I was able to gracefully get into the handstand position yesterday, go through my reps, and continue the workout. You can just call me, The Briest. It’s a name my sister gave me instead of calling me a bridezilla. Now I use it when I’m angry or when I’m being a badass.
According to wikipedia a lunge is…
“a weight training exercise that is used to strengthen the quadriceps muscles, gluteal muscles and the muscles comprising the “hamstrings”, the semitendinosus, the semimembranosus, and the biceps femoris.”
I now know where all those muscles are because I have a serious case of “lunge butt!“ it’s a good problem to have , right? It means I did my lunges correctly the other day and my butt will be back in it’s correct place. I’ll take the pain, even if it means I walk around the office looking funny.
I give my friend, Karrisa lots of applause, she telemark skis down the mountain everyday while working as a Yellow Jacket for Vail, poor thing! So, she basically lunges down a mountain as her career–the result, a cute butt!
I don’t have a photo of Karrisa skiing-sorry. So here’s a photo of my father, Karrisa, and sister–Mac!
