Big Goals For A Little Person

Intro Sample...

All my gymnastics gear was ready: grips, leotard, spandex, ponytail holders, athletic tape, and ankle brace. Before leaving my house, I was constantly checking my gym bag for everything I would need to bring to practice, making sure nothing was missing. Then I left my house, going to school with my school backpack on one shoulder, and my gymnastics bag on the other. The entire day was just plain nerve wrecking.

I needed to get to practice.

She parked at the pick-up zone of my school, and then drove me to practice. It was a nerve wrecking distance. A fifteen to twenty minute drive felt like an hour. The gym was finally in my sight, and I was pretty sure my mom could hear my heart pounding within my chest. I told my mom bye, and she wished me good luck, and then I entered the building. So many girls were present and this meant less of a chance of placing varsity, but I analyzed my competition, and I knew I could at least rule out half of these girls here because I knew which girls were actual gymnasts and which weren’t. I saw a mixture of girls who brought in gymnastics bags from a variety of other gymnastics clubs fully equipped with gymnastics equipment, just as mine was, and then there were the girls who came in only t-shirts and shorts ...
