A King only bows to his Queen.

A friend of Sabrina's has done strongman comps for quite a few years. Then decided to get out of it as she was strong, but also thick.  She felt that to find a guy she needed to be less thick.  She took up women's roller derby.  Not exactly a High Guy Quota sport.  So, she's thinner now, but still single.  Decided she was just going to be happy being her and doing what she wanted.  So, it was back to Strongman Competitions. Sunday July 23rd, is her next competition. 

The Granite State Strongman Coordinator, wanted trophies like RPS has.  So, since he and I are friends and Carl Seeker and I are friends, blah, blah, blah, I picked up the trophies at an RPS Meet, and the GSSC guy met me near home. Trophies were exchanged, and all that good stuff.   While dropping off the trophies, we find out that Sabrina's friend is doing his event.  It sparks a thought in Sabrina's head, and she decides she'd like to give it a shot.  She wanted me to do it with her.

So...
Happy Birthday, my Gorgeous Valkyrie, we're doing a Strongman Competition a week after your birthday.

What are the events?  I checked the fb page, but didn't see anything that listed what was going down.  I'm having a big time love hate relationship with my first time strongman go.  I'm down to 185 from all the conditioning work, but my strength is like a kitten.  Friken sexy kitten though.

It's in Merrimack, NH, not far from you.  And it's at a Brewery.  Come watch the Show.

Some big weight for masters.  I think I could clean a 250lb log, but I'm not in a place where I'm pressing a 250lber right now.  I'm really getting my ass handed to me by the log in training thus far.
