...well, AFTER you've seen the rest of these...

I managed to get a masters best lifters sword with my 2nd attempt of 529--Nancy Carpenter also won Best lifter in her category Nancy beams as she gets her award..from the Legendary Gus Rethwisch !

And Jody Cranston broke Canadian Records in both the bench press and deadlift
this is taken before his successful 573 pull at 181--Jody is 40 now..and still gets his I.D. checked --the "Fit" get fitter--and the youthful ...get......youthfully-er ?

Yes !! I'm happy about the closeness of this attempt..when I was doing it--it seemed farther away--it is very helpful to see how close it was..I got one email from a neighbor who was SAD for me not getting was about as good as my 2nd time trying it in a meet--but THEN I was 10 pounds heavier...and seeing this over and over it seems like I have to do RIGHT arm triceps work..oh yes and I must order a new 'right shoulder' from Priscilla Ribic's PL gear on line...wonder if the have any TITAN shoulder replacements in fat guy size??
