WARNING: This is not a running blog entry. If you are looking for the running blog fun cycle down. (Remember this is my blog and I don’t always do run)
It isnt a secret, the other passion I have outside of running is wrestling.
And two of the biggest reasons for that have been a very certain tag team; The Addiction, Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian.
When I was going through the last few years of finding myself, dealing with the family health issues, and trying to hold it all together. I could watch those two and break out laughing despite myself. There would be some nights I would be laughing so hard that I was crying.
If you watch them you get it. They are just very good at what they do.
But also watching these guys keep going at the level that they do and the fact they keep getting better has inspired me. There are many times that people around me have been pretty clear that I should give up those crazy dreams and goals that I am shooting for. I am too old, I am too washed up, I should be focusing on family, ya know those things you hear.
They defiantly helped to show me that not fitting in the “box” is okay that I can embrace the inner nerd.
I always wanted the chance to meet them to say thank you for inspiring me to continue to push to be better. And I got that chance. (Not without almost tripping over my own two feet. But alas if you know me, if I get nervous I do.)
These two made it a point to make sure this photo happened before I had to bail for my trip back to Portland and could not of been nicer.
I just want to say thank you again to them both for not only inspiring me, just always being awesome towards me, but giving me so many good memories out of my first trip to Vegas.
