  • Comp Diary #5: “Smooth” is a relative term

    Posted on October 23, 2010 by lauraet in comp diary.

    Tweet A while back I had this idea to do a Competition Diary, hopefully illustrated with pictures, of our participation in the Carolina Fall Classic next weekend in Greensboro, NC.  Then last night I was lying in bed in a sudden panic about whether we’d remember our Smooth routines, and I realized that the diary […]
