Originally the reason for traveling to New York was to compete at the IBJJF New York Pro. However, after never taking a break after Worlds, I felt burnt out from the daily grind of training and teaching. Since we’d already bought non refundable tickets to New York, we decided to turn it into a week long vacation instead.
At first I was scared that I would regret this decision, kicking myself for not “sucking it up” and competing, but it turned out to be the best thing that I could have done.
For the first few days, we walked around New York, eating delicious food, walking around Central Park, going to Carnegie Hall to watch amazing pianists perform, going to MoMA to look at amazing art, and we met up with @ime_viayra and took the ferry to Ellis Island and saw the Statue of Liberty.
For the second part of our trip, we had the chance to celebrate @halieatucker birthday, took @jtsatava boat, and stayed on Fire Island where we rented a beach house and relaxed on the beach. Thank you so much for hanging out with us, can’t wait to do it again when you guys are in California.
I’m so grateful that I get the opportunity to not only do what I love on the daily, but I also get the chance to travel and see the world and share this experience with my best friend and partner in crime @kendallreusing ❤️
Dos personas, entre éstas un menor de 13 años, habrían sido mordidas por tiburones en incidentes separados en playas de Fire Island este miércoles, informó la Policía del Condado Suffolk.
De acuerdo con los reportes de medios locales, los ataques ocurrieron a pocos minutos de diferencia. Uno ocurrió en Atlantique Beach y otro en Sailors Haven, a eso de las 11:30 a.m. En el caso del adolescente, éste corría “boogie boarding” cuando ocurrió la emergencia. Las autoridades recuperaron un pedazo de diente al que someterán a pruebas.
Se desconoce si las autoridades limitarán el acceso a estas playas debido a los supuestos ataques.
Be careful where you swim. A boy and a girl were bitten by sharks on Fire Island today, in two separate incidents. 🚨
The boy, 13, was boogie boarding at Atlantique Beach when he was bitten, and stumbled out of the ocean. A lifeguard ran to him, and first responders found he found a tooth lodged in his leg.
Meanwhile a girl, 12, was waist-deep at Sailors Haven when she was bitten. She had deep cuts on her leg. .
The town of Islip has banned swimming at all of its ocean-facing beaches. More details on our website! 🏖 .
