I get to travel and hang out with my friends, all while getting paid to do something I love!
Take this weekend, for instance. I am at the Courtyard hotel, in a king room by myself, in the Kansas City suburb of Briarcliff, with a view overlooking the Kansas City skyline from across the river. Four of my gymnastics friends are here, and we are having a fabulous time catching up. And tonights sessions will finish in time for me to go visit friend in downtown KC.
Another of the things meet directors do for coaches and judges is put out fantastic amounts of really good food! Unfortunately, this can be a drawback as well as an amenity. And eating all this good food might be ok if I could get out and exercise, but my job at the meet is to sit for hours at a time and barely move.
Let me tell you why I will have a tummy ache come Monday:
