We Came, We Sparkled, We Conquered

So, I’m back from Houston…and I’m not entirely happy about it. Actually, scratch that. I’m positively miserable about it.
I’m currently stuck in a state of limbo between feeling like the entire weekend was an unbelievable dream that didn’t actually happen and being depressed over the fact that I know it happened but it can’t repeat itself for another four years.
I can see a few of you snickering at your desks reading this, in disbelief about my ridiculous attachment to 36 hours of time in Houston. But yes, it was just that amazing. Based on my assessment, I think it’s safe to say I had a better time than Kara, Ryan, Meb, Desi, Shalane and Adbi combined.
While most people around the country are busy discussing who won the trials, and who suffered a heartbreaking 6 second defeat, the buzz on the streets of Houston was all about who won the best cheerleaders for the day.
And I’m happy to announce that the unanimous vote, based on the resounding endorsement from fellow spectators, elite athletes, industry professionals, official photographers and local news stations, went to SarahOUaL and this sweaty girl.
I will do a full recap of the trials later today or first thing tomorrow after I’ve procured all of the photos people took from the weekend and finished assembling my portfolio of Team USA cheerleading outfits to submit to Nike and the US Track and Field Association in hopes of gaining sponsorship to cheerlead the shit out of London 2012.
I’m pretty sure that after they see our work for the Trials, they won’t be able to resist making us official members of Team USA. I mean, if we put these ensembles together in seven short days, just think what we could do with months of preparation.
And I’m looking at you when I say that, my soon-to-be best friends forever.
Cheerio friends, I’ll be back soon with all of the sparkly, patriotic details.
