✨Anything is possible! This past Saturday was the Tour de Bloc bouldering competition @sevenbays . 🙀Would you believe it if I told you that a 38-year old woman with rheumatoid arthritis won the women’s competition? . 🤯And she won it by jumping and catching holds and running across volumes to catch more holds?! . That’s what happened! . 💕I’m so filled with gratitude for my coaches @gilesmagic and for helping me get to this point! . 💫This shows you what can happen when you fix your mindset, work through your 💩 and take messy, inspired action to get what you want! . 🙏Thank you to @sevenbays for putting together yet another amazing competition. Huge thanks to the route setters for setting fun things and forcing me to to face my fears of jumping and running in the name of bouldering 😂 @denzclimb @gilesmagic @natashakreid @2_crates @b_withthetrees . 💜Thank you to volunteers who spend the day judging, organizing, babysitting and running up and down the stairs a million times to escort us to the washroom! . 🧗🏻‍♀️Thanks to the event sponsors for making the event possible: @thenorthface @climbnovascotia @goodrobit @movementfactory —special thank you for keeping my hands dry with their incredible chalk: Chalkfactory . 💥Most importantly, thank you to the all of the people who came out to watch and cheer us all on.
