Birthday Suspension

Danae (Queen of the Covergirls) wrote me with the story of her recent birthday suspension,

I’d been talking to Steve Truitt for a little while over iam, and he invited me to come down to Upland, CA to watch a suspension event he was doing with Jon. It was the weekend of my birthday in December, so I drove down with a friend and met up with a couple more friends. Adam came with us to take pictures, Mateo and Meli came along to hang. We all met up with Steve and Jon in Upland. Steve told me I could hang if I decided I was ready. After watching my Meli, who has a birthday within a couple of days of mine, I decided I was ready to go up.

After getting my hooks thrown (four point suicide), which was not as bad as I expected it to be, Steve hooked me up to the rig. Jon pulled on the rope and put a little tension on the hooks. I felt my whole body get warm. I was so calm and ready for this experience. Steve walked me back and forth and with each step I felt lighter and lighter. Before I knew it, I was up. I felt like everything negative in my heart and mind had melted away from me. I just remember I couldn’t stop smiling. Everything felt perfect and right, like I belonged on those hooks.

My back felt really tight, so I started swinging around and reaching behind me and grabbing my feet. Everything loosened up after that. It was so much fun! I could have stayed up forever it seems, but it was starting to get cold and dark and there were about four or five other people waiting to hang, so I decided it was time to come down after about twenty minutes.

Anyway, thanks for letting me share! It was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to do it again.

Lots more pictures after the break!
