"If you fall down 7 times, make sure you get up 8."

Hey GymCat fans!

Another month has gone by too quickly! We're getting ready for Thanksgiving break, which means season is right around the corner. We've had some great surprise intrasquads in the gym, which is making everyone very excited!

This past Veteran's Day we went on a team hike. It was a five mile hike in Sabino Canyon and gave the team an opportunity to bond outside of the gym. A lot of the team has never hiked before, so it was quite the experience. Along those lines, we are also having a team Thanksgiving this week, which will be another chance for everyone to hang out and become closer, ultimately leading to an even stronger bond. We are all supposed bring something homemade and share with each other. It is great to have such a close group of girls to makes things like this so special!

Thanksgiving break will be a chance to rest our bodies so when we come back we will be prepared to be better than ever! Our first official intrasquad will be December 2nd. The team is looking very strong this year; with 17 girls there is an immense amount of talent on each event. Everyone is looking great and we are all ready to show off what we've been working so hard for! I hope you all are as ready as we are for a great 2012 season!
