One of my bestest friends in the whole entire world, Kaia, recently lifted in her first weightlifting competition ever.  She was extremely nervous (if you're not nervous before a competition, there is something seriously wrong with you) and was beginning to question her amazing lifting abilities.  Anyways, despite all the nerves and doubts, she ended up having the most amazing meet ever, going 5 for 6 and pr'ing about 27 times.  It's one thing to be nervous before a competition, but its another thing to be able to control the nerves and use them to your advantage.  And that is exactly what she did.  

Her competition experience inspired me to write this rap.

  3. AHHHHH! I cannot view this rap :( Sage, you are such a wonderful person. You have really given Kaia too many gifts to list, but chief among them has been your steady and kind friendship. You are an inspiration for Kaia and such an incredible role model for her. We are all blessed by you and I so wished you could have seen your girl on the platform. I was SOOOO ridiculously proud of her (and her coach)... There are more things I would like to share with you but sometime soon in a more private forum. SAGE ROCKS!!!!!, world, in case you haven't noticed (but I know you have!)

    I NEED to hear this rap... can you send in to FB?
