Chattanooga is a beautiful city that is tucked between the mountains. It is one of those cities that really makes you appreciate life (if you have never been you should go). It had been a good 9 months since the last time I toed the line against the top competitors in...

Dear April,

F*ck you!!! I knew you were coming many months ago; you were the bad train wreck that I couldn’t look away from. You were about Survival.

June 3 The day came and went just like any other day, except this day was special, it was my pro debut. Like my good friend and coach Brownie (OG’s new nickname for him) says you only have one first pro race. To define the day, it was nothing like I would have dreamed....

Its finally that time. Race seasoning is here; boy did I jump into the deep without my wetsuit. It’s that time to either fight back or die trying. Finally, I am excited and nervous.

It’s been 9 months since I have raced last. 9 months, has to be my record. I look back a...
