So James and I got to meet Aaron Ross this weekend. He is one of the KINGS of BMX!
If you haven’t checked him out lately, or ever…. you better watch this video and get involved!
We went to Baycycle in Pickering and visited with our good old friends Christian, Rob… everyone else who came… Nick the stalker… LOL !
What an awesome night. That guy was mad chill, and it was really awesome having the whole Sunday team come out our way. Unfortunately someone ate shit and lost a tooth, split his lip… and being American is not entitled to our awesome health care that is free… Poor bugger. Hope he’s healing up well!
Anyways this weekend is alright, spent a lot of time getting burnt on Sunday. I ran Gordy’s tough mudder class on Sunday and those guys wanted me to kill them, so that is what happened. 90 mins of death. But if you’ve seen what the tough mudder consists of… You will understand that 90 minutes of torture is nothing compared to what they are planning on enduring on the 18th.
12 days left to go my friends till Nationals. No peep shows from me. I’m tempted but not prepared for anyone to see me until the final package is right where it should be.
I had a long moment to think today about Nationals. I’m not really sure what came over me, but I came to realize that every single athlete that has come from a Regional show, gone through Provincials and hit up Nationals… Have progressed so much over the years and became phenominal competitors. The pros that have come out of Canada are amazing… I’ve never seen such a competitive lineup at a show than our own Canadian Nationals.
I am actually one of those athletes now. I’m going to Nationals. Im a bit overwhelmed with the thought that I too, could be one of those physiques that other people look at and say “hell ya i want to look like that” someday. Just boggles my mind that just a few years ago I was clueless, 17, and needed a huge lifestyle change before putting myself into the gutter… Well this lifestyle is the only one i know now. Not only is it the only one I know, but i’ve found the better person inside of me, found amazing friends inside and outside the industry, and i have the most amazing boyfriend to have my back all the friggen time.
To all the ladies and gentlemen at McPhail’s, Kimmy and Gord, James, Mom, Mark, Katie, my old man, all of my friends… My Nan for being my inspiration to achieve something I once saw so unfeasable… Thank you for being who you are. You are the most amazing people i’ve ever come across (some of you i was born stuck with in my life forever, lol KT) but you have made this happen in a very large perspective.
Now i’m going to go do cardio, because i cant eat ice cream when i get emotional – and you shouldnt either!!!!!
GET IT DONE! Ciao!
