This is pretty hard for me to post. I’ve had it written up for a few weeks now, but screw it. . . . .
Two pictures, same place, exactly one year apart.... .
Left- I was on top of the world. I scored a few fitness deals, landed my first magazine cover and became @1stphorm
athlete of the year. I accomplished things that I never thought possible, reaping the benefits of over twenty years of dedication to my training and nutrition. I finally had some confidence. It’s safe to say that 2017 had been the best year of my life so far.... I had climbed my way to what appeared to be the top and most of you guys were here to watch the journey. (which I’m very grateful for) . . . . .
Right- Fast forward one year, and I’m at what feels like the bottom. Although I consider myself a pretty humble guy, the universe didn’t seem to agree. The phrase “humble yourself or life will do it for you” comes to mind. Life knocked me down a couple notches. Maybe I needed it, maybe I didn’t. Regardless, it happened. I received an injury requiring surgery, which still leaves me pretty much side lined to this day and it might have been the best thing to ever happen to me. .
What...? . .
Yea... how I see it is right now there’s a lot of people that think I’m done, which is great. There are no expectations, no image to maintain and no one to impress, but it also means theres an opportunity for the beginning of a new journey, a new struggle, a new climb to the top. . . . .
I appreciate every single one of you reading this. You won’t want to miss this journey. . . .
2018 had a rough start, but we’re turning this bitch around right now. . .
LETS GET IT! . . .
