Today I did a thing. A big thing. Well, huge. For me. I competed in the IBJJF World Master tournament here in Vegas. My first jiujitsu competition with the IBJJF. And my first as a blue belt. I feel good about the outcome of the match I participated in; even though I didn’t win, I feel like I held my own. Which was a win for me personally on so many levels. A huge “thank you!” to my team here: Kevin Green, Darla, Mike Page, Doyle Cassity, and Dax Clat, for all the training and mental support. And as well to my training partners and coaches back home. I couldn’t have done any of this without y’all.Now, to enjoy my last night here in Vegas, and then to get back home and back on the mats at the gym to continue my training.

So… a thing happened today: I obtained my blue belt. It’s been an interesting year, and I have learned so much. Especially from these two here. Thank you Kevin and Darla for all your help in my journey, and getting me started in this adventure. And thank you to all my coaches (Big John, Mike, Josh, and Kaleb), and to all my fellow bjj friends and rolling partners. I’m working to absorb all the knowledge y’all impart on me on the daily. Thank you.

Watching the evening slip away…. Or a squirrel. Probably a squirrel.

I know there’s a lot going on right now, but happy 26th anniversary to my Husbear. I love you so damn much.

Today I did a new thing: my first jiujitsu competition. While I didn’t win win, I did learn a little bit more about myself in the process. And things I need to work on in my jiujitsu. A great big thank you to Kevin and Darla for going down to Conway with me and coaching and cheering me on.

Since today I achieved Level 50. And I’m skipping down memory lane, posting a random picture taken over the years. Everyone needs a laugh, right? And maybe a reminder…Day 17: This is 50. Well, my first day in. Let’s see what this decade has in store for me.
