Well last Tuesday was my gymnastics class.
Coach Shannon is going to college so Coach Brian is teaching floor now.
I'm happy and sad. Because I love Coach Shannon but Coach Brian is the best and maybe my favorite coach. So...I think I'm happy about it.
We also have two new coaches. Coach Ashley and Coach Angie.
Coach Angie doesn't look more then a year older then me!

So that made me think about how young she might be and that she was working.
Well, I was talking to Coach Kayla and she said that she (meaning Kayla) started working at the gym when she was 14! She said she just helped out with the groups when they needed help.

I could do that! Or I could clean the gym, or take pictures for it or anything!
I just want to work there so bad. Even if I don't get paid.
I could get paid, or I could work for free lessons...I would even be happy with volunteer work.
At least I'd get to see gymnastics every day.

My mom said to ask and see if they had anything for me to do there. But I am to shy to ask and am worried they won't have anything for me to do.

so cool

I just found something out that is very cool.
When my mom was little she knew this guy, Darrel Puciarello, and guess what!
He worked with Bela Karolyi for three years! Isn't that weirdly awesome!

Me and my mom

The worlds greatest gymnasatics coach, Bela Karolyi

Hey people,
Dude I haven't posted in forever!
Well there was just a gymnastics competion but I have to wait for a lap top where I can watch videos until I can post about it.

Anyway, recently I have been reading about gymnastics on the computer and figured out that gymnasts don't like to write very much. Like, I keep trying to look up what the famous gymnasts eat or their training schedule of something like that. I can barely find anything!
And what I do find is just the same thing over and over again. So I am writing a letter to the all time great Mary-Lou Retton and ask her some questions and maybe send her the link to the blog.
And if she writes back ( she probably won't because I imagine she is probably very busy with lots of fan mail ) if she does I might post a little of it on the blog.

Lately I have been having private lessons with coach Brian. Right now we are working on round-off flip flops. It is very hard. The part that is the hardest is pushing in the round-off to where both my hands and my feet are off the ground. I keep trying but I just can't get the hang of it. Tonight I have gym class and hopefully we will work on it a little. Also my flip flop is crooked so we have to work on doing it in a straight line. Also I'm piking in my flip flop instead of arching.
So yeah it needs a lot of work.
well ttyl

Told ya I'd post about mary lou.
Of course almost every one knows that she won the All-Around competition and got a perfect 10 on her vault! Absolutly the most amazing gymnast ever! I forgot what her book was called.
I think its called Mary Lou Retton creating an olympic champion.
I read NAdia Comaneci's book. I'll post abbout her tomorrow...maybe.
