What a year 2010 has been! Since we started in August, we've had almost 10,000 hits! We must be doing something right! We've had a fun time trying to educate, empower, and entertain all the readers out there.
Please let us know what you did or did not like so we can better serve you.
We have a lot to look forward to in 2011. It's going to be an exciting year so far as Jessica and I are concerned. Jessica is having great training and is looking forward to some PRS and. getting on the podium at Nationals. My goals are to win the Pan Am Games and get as close to the podium as possible at the World Championships.

PLUS ANY REQUESTS FROM YOU
We have gotten a request to have some "Swag." We would love to! We need a design though. We'd like to have a contest. Make a design for "Pretty Strong" that we can use on Tshirts and other junk. We'll decide who the winner is and get some gear! More details to follow.
Girls only competition!
Our goal is to have a meet for girls only and call it the "Pretty Strong Open." All of the proceeds go to charity. We're hoping to have it in May and have it as a "Last Chance Qualifier" for Nationals. It will be sanctioned!
That's enough writing for now.
We hope you all had wonderful holidays!
