Part of me feels a bit like a selfish prick when I say this, but I'm not sure I want to be any kind of ambassador for para-climbing and disabled athletes. Again, I kind of just want to do my own thing, and do things that bring me personal satisfaction and happiness. Obviously, associated with personal satisfaction/fulfillment/happiness is feeling like I am making a positive impact/contribution to the lives of others; maybe I can alter my perspective and see paraclimbing as one way of doing that. But, right now, I'm having a bit of a tough time seeing that.
I am going to go back to the gym today and see if they still have a copy of my scorecard so I can take a picture of it. Waiting to get some pics from other people (I'm terrible about taking pictures of myself and documenting these things), so will post those when I receive them.
Update: Womens Finals results. I'm glad Fran and I were able to do fairly well against fully able-bodied folks.

|I don't think the route-setters intended the climber to get horizontal on this route (assuming you don't have a gimpy left leg)|
