MA/RI State Championship Best Lifter – Women’s Raw

My starting deadlift was over twice my bodyweight!

It has been a very long day today. We got up at 5 a.m. to drive to Rhode Island for my first powerlifting championship. The even ran started at 9 a.m. and wrapped up around 6 p.m.

It was one of those mentally and physically exhausting days that just make you so happy to finally be home cuddled under a warm blanket on the couch.

Tomorrow, I will write more about my experience but for now…I just want to brag because I’m really proud of myself for committing to something I wasn’t fully comfortable doing…my first powerlifting competition.

And guess what!?!

The risk paid off!

Weighing in at 118lbs, I won the 123 weight class and Best Overall Lifter for the Women’s Raw Division!

Anyway, more tomorrow!
