Over the next week, the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders will be providing behind-the-scenes access and first-hand-accounts of their 2013 Calendar photo shoot in tropical Costa Rica.
For the first photo shoot diary entry, we check in with Tasha, who is a Redskins Cheerleader rookie this season after serving as an ambassador last year. She has a few pre-game jitters but says she is ready to make Redskins Nation proud:
I am beyond excited and just a tad bit nervous to be traveling to Costa Rica for my first calendar shoot as a rookie. I still can’t believe that I have been afforded the opportunity to be a Washington Redskins Cheerleader, but if I’m dreaming I definitely don’t want to wake up.
This is one of many opportunities in my rookie year that I will never forget and I can’t wait to make cherished memories with my teammates while staying at Occidental Hotels and Resorts!
As a team, we have been preparing for the trip by working out every week with our trainer, Jason. We had a two day boot-camp that was very intense. I’ve never worked out so hard in my life! I was exhausted, but I’m sure all of our hard work and healthy sacrifices will all pay off when we see the beautiful calendar.
A few weeks ago we had bikini fittings. I am lucky to be wearing a sexy hot pink bikini by Casa Bikini, which I’ll be accessorizing with gold jewelry. Everyone’s bikinis look great on them and I can’t wait to see how the calendar turns out.
We’ve also been hard at work in the studio, preparing for the calendar show we will be performing for the guests and Redskins fans at Occidental Hotels and Resorts.
I’m all packed for the trip and did some last minute shopping this weekend. It has been fun preparing for this trip and I’m excited to leave tomorrow.
It will be hard to leave the familiarity of home, my family and my boyfriend for a whole week, but I am so blessed to have this opportunity that so many wish to have. I pray that we all have safe travels, a very fun and hard-working week resulting in a fabulous calendar, and that we make it back home safely!
I can’t wait to meet all of you fans and Hail to the Redskins!
