Laughed about the lopsided lift...I did kind of the same thing once when I forgot to put the collar on the bar.....weights started sliding off and I almost toppled over. Thank God no audience! I know you'll do great in Asheville, E! I'm sure the thinking about it beforehand must be worse than the event itself? Seems like everything moves so fast, you don't have much time to be nervous during the derby. Not that I've had any experience......anyway, you'll be wonderful!
