TB to almost a week ago at the 2017 USATF 20km Nationals/PAN AM Race Walk Cup Trials held in Philadelphia, PA. Definitely an honor to toe the line with these amazing athletes. It's a new journey for me and I learned a lot from this race. The story isn't done yet, that was just the first chapter. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈβœŠπŸ½πŸƒπŸΎβ˜πŸΎπŸ™πŸ½#walkmore #amaesh #ff #follow #usatf #philadelphia #racewalk #followme #militaryathlete #racewalker #usaf #pennsylvania #nuunlove #nuunlife #shoreathleticclub #walkthisway #2020vision #instafitness #instagood #instatravel #wanderlust #20km #20kmwalk #nikond3000 #nikonphotography *

PC: @love_kind πŸ“Έ- THANK YOU!

Made sure to get some cryotherapy treatment time after the race today at @cryowave in Manhattan Beach, CA. Great service, very knowledgeable staff, and solid experience. 3 minutes of much needed recovery. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈβœŠπŸ½β„οΈπŸŒ¬#cryowave #manhattanbeach #california #amaesh #ff #follow #cryotherapy #recovery #followme #distancerunner #militaryathlete #racewalker #racewalk #shoreathleticclub #iphone6s #iphonephotography

So yesterday I competed in my first National level Championship/Trials at the 2017 U.S. Track & Field Pan Am Cup Race Walk Cup Trials. This was the 20km race walk trials to make the US National team which will represent TEAM USA in Lima, Peru next month for the IAAF PANAM RACE WALK CUP. This event was held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at Fairmount Park and was on a 1,000m loop which we covered 20 times. The event featured Olympians, American record holders, and current TEAM USA members. On the Men's side you had Olympian (US Army WCAP) John Nunn, and on the Women's side Olympians - Maria Michta Coffey, aMiranda Melville, and Katie Burnett (recently broke the American 50km record in January). *

I went out with a goal of crossing the finish line, not receiving any red cards or disqualification, and learning more about the event since it is still new to me. I also wanted to finish in the top 10, but given my short time of training for race walking it was a big goal. *
*
I achieved crossing the line, not receiving any red cards/disqualification, and I learned a lot. I didn't break into the top 10 Americans range but out of the 19 American males entered I finished 14th (some did not finish and some were disqualified). Race walking is a very technical event and though one could be very fast, it doesn't always mean they could win because it comes down to technicalities and form. If the referee sees a competitor exhibiting improper form, they are given warning cards and or a red card which would risk being disqualified. There are a lot more to think about in this event than just track events alone. *
*
All in all, I am hungry for more. I want to succeed in this event and grow. I really learned a lot from the Amazing athletes I met and will take these lessons and advice to my training. Now to rest these tired legs in some ice. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈβœŠπŸ½πŸƒπŸΎ#usatf #racewalk #amaesh #racewalker #philadelphia #ff #followme #follow #2020vision #olympictrials2020 #20km #20kmwalk #walkthisway #wanderlust #technical #form #thiseventistough #respect #instagram #instawalk #instawalktokyo #militaryathlete #shoreathleticclub #usaf #courage #dedication #determination #inspire #achieve

That post-workout flow (music by W&W @wandwmusic - What You Need) the beat got me through my final few kilometers. Only 22 days till the Nationals/Trials. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸƒπŸΎπŸ™πŸ½ #racewalk #racewalking #amaesh #usatf #militaryathlete #usaf #usatfnj #trackandfield #followme #ff #endurance #enduranceathlete #essentiawater #nuun #newbalance #shoreathleticclub #racewalkers #nuunlife #liveclean #2020vision #walkthisway

Enjoying the 123rd running of the PENN RELAYS @pennrelays on a beautiful day in Philly. Had a chance to cheer on a fellow race Walker and friend @alexthewalker as he took the win in the Olympic Development 10k racewalk. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸƒπŸΎ#pennsylvania #amaesh #trackandfield #relays #racewalking #pennrelays #ff #follow #usatf #militaryathlete #shoreathleticclub #instagood #philadelphia #followme #track #miler #distancerunner #iphone6s #iphonephotography #instagram

Well...this happened. Earned a silver medal in my first 3,000m race walk at the 2017 USATF New Jersey Association Indoor Open & Masters Championships. Time wasn't what I wanted, but I didn't get one foul, finished strong, negative split, and learned a lot. I stuck with the plan my Coach set for me and heeded the advice of some legends in the sport. It was a good day! One of many more to come! @coache πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‘πŸ½πŸ“·πŸƒπŸΎπŸ₯ˆ #usatf #racewalk #racewalker #shoreac #shoreathleticclub #amaesh #followme #ff #distancerunnersdoitlonger #endurance #usatfnj #follow #instagram #instadaily #newbalance #militaryathlete

Through out my years of training and competing, I've always struggled to find a good road racing shoe that provided my crazy gait and foot strike with the right balance of support, and cushion...without sacrificing weight and un-necessary over lays. I began my race walking journey with the @newbalance 1500 version 1 (pictured in gray and white). Absolutely loved them and they really got me started off right. Fearful of any changes to future models, I searched for more of the version 1 but alas found the version 2 (Blue and Yellow/ and Electric Yellow) and I must say...WOW! Still an amazing show...I'll be toeing the line this weekend in my version 2's...thanks @newbalancerunning_ for making some solid shoes. I hope the version 3 is just as amazing!πŸ™πŸ½πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸƒπŸΎπŸ‘πŸ½#newbalance #newbalancerunning #amaesh #militaryathlete #usatf #usaf #ff #followme #racewalk #racewalker #shoreac #shoreathleticclub #follow #panamracewalkcuptrials #philadelphia #pennsylvania #nationalchampionships #2020vision #iphone6s #iphonephotography

Always have to put the best back into your body post workout. It's all about replenishing nutrients, and increasing recovery with what's right. I always use cherries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, black chia seeds from @thechiaco and vegan proteins from @vega_team which I then combine with some Himalayan pink salt and coconut milk.

Pre-race game plan...after meeting and speaking with some of the competitors in tomorrow's race - all of whom are super humble and personable, and inspiring - I return to my room, some @californiapizzakitchen in hand for the carbs I enjoy...and a huge O on my shorts as I root on my Oregon Ducks! + 200 pages of reading for class (boo!) lol πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈβœŠπŸ½πŸƒπŸΎ#usatf #nationals #racewalk #panamcupracewalktrials #amaesh #ff #followme #militaryathlete #racewalker #2020vision #usaf #follow #philadelphia #pennsylvania #20km #iphone6s #iphonephotography #instagood #ig_daily #shoreathleticclub#goducks #oregonducks

Tune up workout this morning...1 week to go. 41F, 12-15mph cross wind, light drizzle, and quite a few white tail dear along the course made for some interesting moments. My form is improving, endurance is there...just learning with each workout, continuing to study the form of the current greats on the world scene, and believing in the process. As my Wife States, "this is how he race walks MEOW!" Only 7 days left till the 20km Nationals/Trials...πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸƒπŸΎ#racewalk #racewalker #amaesh #ff #usatf #militaryathlete #follow #distancerunner #enduranceathlete #myboausa #nuunlove #nuunlife #feetures #feeturessocks #newbalance #followme #2020vision #trainhard #justkeepwalking #thewalkoflife #playhardwalkharder #shoreathleticclub #usaf #iphone6s #iphonephotography @love_kind @amaesh_world_kitchen #nbrunning #newbalancerunning #essentiawater #showyourions

I'm trying not to over stride and do extra work. But focused on maintaining form and technique while trying to improve speed and turn over. This is a tough transition from being a mid-long distance runner...walking at the speeds and maintains the technique isn't easy at all but I'm working on it each day. Big thanks to my Queen @love_kind for taking the time to help me with this training session. ************************************************

People say it's too cold cause it's easier to be a spectator than it is to be a competitor...23F and I'm out here chasing goals and DREAMING BIGGER! #racewalk #racewalking #amaesh #usatf #militaryathlete #usaf #usatfnj #trackandfield #followme #ff #endurance #enduranceathlete #essentiawater #nuun #newbalance #shoreathleticclub #racewalkers #nuunlife #liveclean #2020vision #walkthisway

Well it's official...I'm entered in the 2017 USATF Pan Am 20km RW Trials...still three weeks and plenty of time for more entries but already I recognize some solid names. I am truly the most inexperienced person in this field and I will continue to train, hone the form and technique, and give it my best for this debut. I am nervous mostly because of my inexperience in this event, but endurance wise I'm good to go. We shall find out in 3 weeks. πŸ™πŸ½πŸƒπŸΎ

If anyone would like to come cheer me on, I would really appreciate it as it will be a long event for me. It will be in Philadelphia.

Found some "proofs" from my first race walk competition at the USATFNJ Association Indoor Championships 3,000m. It's a long road to where I want to be...just gotta keep training and remain focused! βœŠπŸ½πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸƒπŸ½ #racewalk #racewalking #amaesh #usatf #militaryathlete #usaf #usatfnj #trackandfield #followme #ff #endurance #enduranceathlete #essentiawater #nuun #newbalance #shoreathleticclub #racewalkers
