Embarrassing but fun.  About where I expected without touching a grip implement in 2 years and having my hip replaced 7 months ago.  Definitely finally felt like I belonged in the masters class.  

Strangely I did well in my nemesis the wrist roller.  Think I got 4th.  Last in every other event.

Last Nationals (2019) I did 418.8 on 2" Napalm's Nightmare.   This time 342.  Not sure if it was my hip or my grip, but 362 wasn't coming up.  🤣  I had planned to do 352 and stop but was desperately trying not to let Sarah beat me so I jumped to 362 when she did.  Bad choice.  She got it for a huge woman's world record.  An amazing lift!

Great meeting some new faces and seeing old buds.  Thanks for having me up.

My Medley was sabotaged by a bottle of gatorade.

That was one heck of a Medley - fun idea to have to carry everything for distance!  The Jedley Medley strikes again :)

RE:  old guys.  It was going to be my first post-heart-failure comp, and I am pretty sure I'd have vied with Rindo for last place (or first in the Masters lol), but I wussed out - gonna try again July 10 in Washington (arm lifting comp), hopefully.  You guys did great.  And that medley looked awesome.

This was your year Vin!  Next year will be your last shot.  After that, Dingy is a master.  😳

My original idea would have been cooler, but I just didn't have enough room to make it work.
