This week is Peak Week. Peak week is the week before a competition. And its name says it all. It is the week that athletes who have trained hard, eaten clean, and dug deep; prepare for their big day. It looks a little different for everyone. And some love it, some hate it. Personally, I love it. There are those last workouts, posing practice, carb cycling, make-up practice, hair and nail appointments, tanning, and rest. All of which make you feel like a kid before Christmas. I salute all those competing in the Mid-Atlantic Classic and look forward to sharing the stage with dedicated individuals who aren’t afraid to chase their dreams.
