20 Years ago today, I married Cynthia.  It has been the best decision of my life. Not only does she put up with 25 guys in our driveway every morning at 5 am, but she has stood by my side and supported my goals and dreams from day one. 

My goals have been quite different than most and many of my "friends" told me that I could never make it as a professional fisherman, that it was stupid to try and that I should just get a real job.  Cynthia never did.  She remained confident in my ability to accomplish these goals even in the darkest hours when it looked like I might not be able to.

She is a special person and I am lucky to have her.  Thanks for 20 awesome years, and here's to 20 more.


Today, we braved the blizzard of 2016 and went out into the elements despite all schools being closed today.  We took a field trip to a nearby hill and did 5 rounds of up Kent Street and down Hartman.  It is the steepest hill in Chattanooga and makes for a great workout.

Mike stayed on my heels the entire run and sniped me at the end.  I was 1 second off my PR.

Great to have training partners that can push me like that.  My time was 10:57, Mike was 10:54 and the all time gym record on this run is 10:15 by Will Kelley.  Amazing!
