Anita Naidu Is My Hero

Anita Naidu, mountain-biker supreme, got sponsored by Lululemon!! AND she flashed a V3 at the climbing gym!! AND she nailed a C-box (which is to do with snowboarding, apparently) like it was nothing!! AND she's going on an environmental engineering CIDA placement in South Africa!! AND she's going to the Soccer World Cup in Germany!!

Anita has been my hero ever since grade 11, when she showed up in my history class and quizzed me on my life philosophy. She is my #1 climbing buddy, George Street advocate and general partner in crime. Dude, I'm so glad that all your hard work is paying off and your accomplishments are being recognized. Way to set big goals and achieve them.

Adam: it's danajcooper(at)gmail.com

I put it on your blog comment-y thing, but it seemed a bit too subtle.

AdamFireFist said...

No, no, it was just subtle enough.
I was momentarily confused, but then I had an "aha!" and figured it out. I am teh orxxor...

I only partially understand what I just wrote....

Oh, and what's a V3, and how does one flash one? Can I flash a V3, or is it something only girls can do?

danadana said...

Teehee, no, it's nothing to do with being a girl. V3 is a level of difficulty in rock climbing (actually in bouldering specifically). To 'flash' something is to get it right first try. So Anita did a V3 (super-hard) bouldering problem, first go at it. She is the shiz. And with abs of steel and no sense of personal danger, you could be, too :)

I lack abs of steel.
I'm going to go flash a...a ... v4.
Yeah.
