I went down on the third obstacle last night, the Broken Pipes in the Kansas City Finals on American Ninja Warrior. It's definitely not what I had planned, but it's what happened. Simply put, I made a mistake with the placement of my first foot and couldn't recover.
A lot of people try to get on ANW every year, and I'm lucky to even get a chance to compete. Even some of those who make it to the course fall and never get to see the footage to learn what they did wrong. I'll definitely watch this clip hundreds or thousands of times before next year. Some of it to learn and get better, and some of it to remind myself of how far I need to go to really achieve what I want to on ANW.
Thank you everyone for the support since my fall! You all are awesome! It was great to compete with my training buddies @towerofpower_mears and @towerofpower_polizzi, and good luck to @ninjayamapt who CRUSHED IT last night! Congrats to all of the other amazing competitors who earned a run in Vegas @nvr_gvup @lancepekus and so many more!! .
