Leaving for OKC.

February 11, 2015


Elle and I leave for JR nationals this week and I gotta tell you, we’re both pretty excited.  JR Nationals was the first national meet that I ever coached at way back in 2011.  Actually, I coached a kid in JR nats back in like 2008 or so but he wasn’t my athlete so I didn’t count it.

As a result of all the traveling and busyness lately, I’ve been rather uninspired with writing.  So rather than put out some crap I’ll just give you a few things that are real.

Here’s my favorite thing to listen to during training lately.  If I’m lucky, the gym is relatively empty when I have my personal afternoon session so I get to put on whatever I want on the stereo.

I usually throw on some faster stuff when I max out.  Speaking of which, I’ll have to do that today since I’ll be in OKC on Friday and I don’t want to be THAT GUY in the training hall room at JUNIOR NATIONALS getting’ my heavy sesh in, brah.

Also, one of my new favorite parts about traveling is finding time to read.  The last meet trip I went on, I devoured a tween sci-fi book that was recently made into a movie (likability scale: 6/10 which is pretty good given my usual distain for teenager related media).  5 bucks if you can guess which book.

I’ll be finishing up this on the plane ride home next week.  A friend let me borrow it and I’m pretty stoked to actually get some time to read it.
