I’ve totally been slacking on the but it is called a challenge for a reason. I haven’t gone to the gym as much as I would have liked, got tripped up on day 4 when I didn’t have a single point spanset, hip hold split vid to post. So while this video has some lyra splits in it, I wanted to post it more as an homage to my best friend/life partner Katherine. In the years that college separated us, we would make the most of our summers together and it might have something to do with this holiday, but I’m starting to realize that she is truly, actually DEAD. Realization is the second stage in the Mathews-Johnson theory of grief. I’m sorry that I am not able to be as present as possible right now. Every day is a struggle. Thanks to my fiancé, who took this video, @ & @ and the entire New Orleans Revue, @ for hosting and @ for sponsoring this amazing collaboration. To @.vanessa and everyone involved in and to @ for this beautiful hoop! Also to my friends @ for being amazing & @ for being the only one who can truly understand.
