|This guy. Will he ever grow a neck?|
I'm not sure exactly what it is that I love the most about this girl; my list is pretty long.
For starters, unless she's in the middle of training this girl has a perms-smile on her adorable little head. I'm not sure if she's ever been in a bad mood, ever had a bad driving experience, or ever had someone say something mean to her. Because if she has had any one of those things happen, or anything even remotely close, I have never crossed paths with her on a day when any of that occurred. At least if it has, she has never shown up at CFNE with so much as a trace of any of it on her face.
Or, maybe I love the course her hair as taken over the time that I've known her. I'm not sure which is my favorite: the spiky boy-cut or the helmet she has so proudly been growing through for the last few months.
She is one of the more dedicated, most driven athletes I've ever coached. I love that I was there to witness her most recent major accomplishment: her first muscle-up on the high rings.
But, what I might be most intrigued with is her level of comfort with herself. Believe me, I have tried on many occasions to shock people with some pretty understandably unspoken topics (Brazilian waxes, stench crotches, infected butt holes, toilet skid marks, menstrual cycles, "twigs and berries", tea bagging, accidentally exposed nipples, self-tanning, the "correct" number of toilet paper squares for every wiping situation, thong wedgies)…and, this chick has always managed to one-up me. Nothing cracks this girl. She always has something to share that makes me feel like a total rookie.
So, here's to you, Kaitlyn. Here's to your smile, your helmet head, your free spirit, your open book personality, and your way of making us all feel like nothing we do can ever be as naughty as what's going on in your pretty little head.
You're the best :)
