Carrie...The Trapeze Artist

I did it. I flew on a trapeze. I will not lie. It was scary. It was one of the scariest things I've ever done. My heart was in my throat. I felt sick to my stomach. I think I might've thrown up in my mouth a little bit.

But I did it.

And I can't wait to go do it again!

Here's me: HIDING
I should add that the three people that went before me were ages 4, 7 and 5.

How Embarrassing.

Learning how to hold the bar:
All you need to know in one easy 3 second lesson
Waiting for the bar and thinking - WHAT AM I DOING?!
They told me to jump and I told my body to jump

But nothing happened.

So then they said JUMP again...
Somehow, I got my legs to do it

UMPH - Boy I feel heavy.
OH WAIT! It's like being on a swing!
Just harder

I'm doing it! I'm FLYYYYING

So I did a pretty cool flip at the end to dismount. Unfortunately, it wasn't caught on film.

They yelled up and asked if I wanted to do the flip - Of course I said yes. It sounded easier than the alternative - let go & Fall.

So the first time around, she said tuck knees and arch back.

I went UP - where were my knees?! I couldn't feel my legs anymore. My whole body was numb. AHHH EVERYONE IS WATCHING!

Second time, she yells TUCK! And I did it!!! I tucked & let go and I flipped backwards!

I can't wait to go back.

Wow, I know I couldn't do that. I feel a little bit nauseated just looking at the pictures. Well done you.
