I don’t regret the run, I don’t regret getting up for parkrun. But I’m paying for it now. I wish there were a way to show people how crippling endometriosis can be without them experiencing it for themselves. In the last 5 days I’ve managed 1 run and I’m paying for it. It’s not fair 😥.. I struggle going out in public because it bloats me that much that I feel and look 8 months pregnant. I always run with a jacket on no matter the weather.. my body has already been abused enough which is 100% my fault. I look at some people in their 30s and 40s wondering how they can look that good. But I know the way my body is, is my own fault. But chucking the endo on top and I’m never sure what hurts more. The non-fixable endo pain or my own self confidence and consciousness.. any who.. there’s only 1 little ugly duckling who can fix that.. me! .
My level 4 skills are coming along. My first meet isn’t until January so I still have time to clean everything up! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Current areas of focus: getting my “muscle up” kip to a straight arm kip & my leap series...that back leg just doesn’t want to go up! Lol
What are you working on?
This beautiful outdoor boy will be heading into level 4 gymnastics this year for short season competing. He is an underdog with starting back up with gym last November as a 10 yr old. He has come along way with his skills and dedication.
As we were sitting last night watching US gymnastics championships we heard a special persons name Peter Kormann. I am grateful for my time at Chelsea Piers and Peter for always pushing my butt to something new even though my dancer head only wanted to dance, dance, dance and do yoga of course!
Chelsea Piers and the team there at my time in NYC I will have you all in my heart this year as Bax Jac gives this gymnastics thing a try.
P and Bax have been laughing at me since I say "as long as you show up and try you are a winner." He is my favorite gymnast that is for sure. I just may need a gym soon to where I can teach too.....

Thanks @goodlifefitness! Not only did I get my pistol squat back, I actually got my dragon squat and ninja jump to pistol squat now at 3.5 months healed 🐉
Just goes to show what good rehab care can do for you 🙏🥑🧘🏽♀️
Sarah's #recovery is proof that you can achieve what you #believe ! 👇
"Your #body won’t go where your mind doesn’t push it. 5 weeks ago I broke my foot and was told I may need a metal plate surgically implanted. Through good #nutrition , I healed my fracture in just 3-4 weeks, and at only 5 weeks out I am now pistol squatting on both legs again and almost have my dragon #squat back!"
