Long post. .
This is a spot called Hesitation point and if you know me, you know this spot. This is where I run, pray, and find peace in Brown county state park. It’s where I figure myself out and process things. .
The Chicago race weekend is always a big weekend for me. It’s where I hit my first top ten, coined, and last year fell apart when we lost my grandmother. Yesterday on the way up I was called by my friend @kdonoghuelives to help with something new. Today @billbrumbachocr and I will be helping with the live feed from @spartanrace he will be doing sideline reporting and I will be working cameras and following my friends in the elite pack as a rabbit televising this to millions of people across the globe. .
I won’t race today, but will tomorrow. I will still jump in an open later for fun and stretch out the legs ect. .
It came down to a few things. .
This is the year of fun. Let’s try new stuff, have a blast, and see if anything good comes from it. I get to spend a little more time with the friends and community and run around and see them. .
I have already qualified for the season. This year I have qualified for Tahoe in age group and with no trickle down now it makes it much tougher for people in my age group who can’t travel to get up there. If you are in my age group and want to qualify for Tahoe, guys get up there today. Looking at you @jschlag13 and @jchandler_runs It’s a great feeling and I hope you get it here this weekend. .
There is always another day. Sometimes you have to set yourself aside and appreciate where you are at. Slow yourself down, and take assessment of where you are. It’s been a big long year for me and to look back at how far I have come may be good. .
I can’t wait to see everyone out there today. Give it hell, make videos, and bring you all the sport I love. If you are out there run like hell, live big, live loud. I will be at the start line soon. .
We will see you on the course.
