Throwing Weight Like It’s My Job…2015 NASA Natural Nationals

There are so many marvelous and whimsical places that a couple could celebrate Valentines Day weekend. I highly doubt that sitting in a hotel conference room and watching people lift things up and put them down –>insert Planet Fitness Lunk joke here<– would be considered one of them. But guess what…that’s how this girl spent her weekend and I enjoyed every minute of it. If you’ve been reading my blogs or following me on Instagram for a while now then you would know that my boyfriend is a powerlifter. You may even remember my August post of his first full powerlifting meet which was also through the same powerlifter association, NASA. This past weekend we set out to Oklahoma City to attend this competitive event.

The weekend was not all heavy metal. After the boyfriend weighed-in for his weight class, we both headed over to a nearby Mexican restaurant (sorry I do not recall the name and can’t seem to find it on Google maps). The food was very good and the strawberry margarita was delicious.

We stayed at the Comfort Suites located about a mile up the road from the meet location, Wyndham Garden Hotel. We got a good nights rest, after chatting it up with my brother and his girlfriend who came to support (Yay!). The next morning was time to get to work!

There was a pretty good-sized crowd at this event. There were plenty of competitors ranging from novice to experienced. These events go typically for about 6-7 hours, depending on how many people compete. If you ever attend one of these events be prepared to sit, sit and sit some more. The meet is non-stop with short breaks between categories.

I am very proud of my boyfriend and his friend and fellow competitor Toby. They put many months of training into this event and it really paid off. Powerlifting isn’t something to do flippantly, you have to train hard and constantly plan ways to meet your personal records. It’s so awesome to be in a room filled with people working towards their own personal goals. I had an awesome time this weekend.

Very proud of him! Of course he had to represent for Keith's Ice Cold Beverages!

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard
    to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a very good job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Safari.
    Excellent Blog!
