This past Sunday, about ten and a half months into my obsessive aerial practice, I passed the Aerialfit level test and moved up to level three in silks! As you may be able to imagine, I am overjoyed. I distinctly remember looking at the level three girls when I first started in awe and admiration – and now I’m one of them!
Plus, in my first level three class ever today we learned a REALLY cool drop.
Ever since I moved to Charleston, any time I mentioned running to anyone, the very first response I got was “oh, are you going to do the bridge run?” Fortunately I have a friend at Clemson who told me about the race before I even moved, so we’d already agreed to run it together and I knew what they were talking about. But I still assumed that their insistence that it’s a really big deal was just Charleston people being proud of Charleston.
