Thank you everyone! I appreciate the warm welcome! Thanks Schultz I appreciate it! I love throwing, I find it super fun and I love the new challenge. I have my own weights and sheaf, and I recently had an adjustable bar made for my height throws. I just try to practice and video my throws as much as possible. I have a great amount of support out there helping me, I am lucky!

Welcome to the board Shawna now I have a question, Does your hair ever fall in your face when you are competing? LOL just wondering.

lol Hanni. Maybe we ladies should start asking questions like do your balls stick to your leg when you deadlift?

Hey everyone thank you for the invite! I've done 3 highland games so far. Just started in Jan. Before this I've been a competitive elite level powerlifter for the last 14 years, and BB for about 4 years. Of course I look different throwing on the field then I do before I get on stage. Two totally different worlds. In those pics, in my defense was poring out all day so those pics are not that attractive looking. It's not about that either, it's about being an athlete and getting it done. Hope you all have a great day!

I like the fact you compete in 3 or more different ways. I too have done strongman, powerlifting and bodybuilding. It helps me break things up and not so redundant!

Yeah the hair question? Really? Thanks Rottenrogue for handling that! I'm an athlete and have been forever, so I agree things do become redundant, and sometimes my body needs a rest from all of the heavy stuff so that's why I like BB.
