Womens Surf Boot Camp!

Noah has been conducting Surf Boot Camps since last year. It has been a learning process for him and he now has a great friend Dave Horan, "Big Dave" as we like to call him, working with him. He is a Green Beray and works with Blackwater. He has brought much military training and great ideas to the table. He and Noah bring there experience and knowledge together for a one-two punch of aerobic, plyametric, water training and team building exercises. Each day camp is started with a mini devotional and prayer, also each work out is closed with prayer. All in all you get challenged mentally, physically, and spiritually. Its good stuff! I say this from experience because they just did there first Women's Surf Boot Camp and I was part of it. Thanks to my 2 friends Chelsey and Brittany, who took turns sleeping at my house and watched my kids three times a week. It severely kicked my butt, so hard, every time. It was so worth it.

Above we are doing high knees in the water. Right, we are listening to the wisdom of Lynn Brookes before we start our workout.
This has been such an awesome experience. Not only did I get pushed farther than I thought I was able to go, but I got to know and bond with a bunch of amazing women. We had so much fun. Every time you finished a day you were sooo proud of yourself for hanging in there. Cause it was hard. This experience was so humbling but yet made me feel so Strong, physically and mentally. Cause let me tell you, at 5am you got mental battles, and I HATE running and would dread the mile run we did in various ways. I would tell myself "put one foot in front of the other. just keep going. you can do this." The last day I ran, I literally, had to tell myself ,out loud, cause I was just STRUGGLING... "I love to run. I am light and fast" It sounds ridiculous but I had to do anything to finish and at the time that was what I needed. At the end of four weeks I was actually sad it was over.

The whole gang. 27 women! loving running......... push ups! down and holding.

Drowning...shore brake sit ups!

So I wanted to share this with my friends and family. I am very grateful for the boys and their efforts. I miss all the ladies too. Especially the shore brake sit ups. Love you girls!

Flutter Kicks...............last day Victory!.................Jodi look'n ripped!

Feeling the Love. The boys were convinced that we girls are tough cookies. They loved us.
