trapeze school of New York (Boston)

ok so I did it...I flew on a trapeze! OMG was that scary!!!! but I did it and I've got the pictures to prove it....THANK GOSH...because I'm never doing that glasses made it that much scarier....and my body is not designed for that type of was fun and funny....especially when i had to flip off of the net at the bottom and my leg got twisted and i turned into a human pretzel and managed to kick my coach in the

basically how it went was I climbed up the never ending stair case and got hooked into a harness which was hooked onto the safety guide ropes.... my coach a nice guy named Don told me to put my toes on the edge...and that's about where my fight or flight response kicked in....then he brought over the bar and had me hold on with one hand and stand in this really odd position  ( not pleasant) then i held on with the other hand and that's when i nearly went over too early....i think i stopped hearing what Don and the ground coach were saying at about that point.....then Don told me to bend my knees and hop on which point I turned around and said are you NUTS!!!! There's nothing to hop onto.....once he stopped laughing he counted to 3 and silly me I hopped....then i swung back and forth a bit...legs pumping....apparently the ground coach was trying to get me to pump in a certain rhthym but since my heart was in my throat and my senses were on overload i couldn't translate what she was saying into words....but i swung back and forth a few times and then i let go of the bar and dropped backwards into the net....that was kinda of fun in a WHAT THE HECK AM I DOING...kinda

and then i had to somersault out of the net and that would be when my leg got caught and I clocked the ground coach....


lot of fun and quite an experience
