    No worries! I get asked all the time how I got into HG. I was not an athlete, I was the fat girl who always got picked last in gym class. I connected with a big burly man in a kilt last year who saw me working out and said "Hey, why don't you come throw with us?"

    Who'd have thought that stalking men in kilts would have brought me to such a great sport!! Last year, I just limped along. I started training with a friend who is a Personal Trainer and Professional HG athlete. It's worth it to travel 1 1/2 hours for sport specific training!! He must be good. He had a stone throwing clinic and 4 people came down from Canada to spend a couple hours with John! (I'm in Oregon, he's in SW Washington)

    Hi Dave, I was just looking for some information on Highland Games and came across your profile. I started throwing last year and am in serious training for 2013.
    Spark on!
