Hey guys and gals,
Sitting in the Newark Airport and wanted to give you all an update on what’s going on with me.
The weekend before last I wrestled my first match back and felt pretty good. I obviously came back against a brutal opponent and am happy with the end result.
Thanksgiving was great, my Migima (grandmother) was in town and my family had dinner with Megan’s family at their house. I probably ate a little too much but I was trying to keep up with my not so little brother.
I’m heading out to Colorado Springs to get a few days of training in with the Greco National team coaches to get ready for my big showdown in Madison Square Garden on December 21st. I’m really excited to do a little Greco training because it is something different and will help me become a more well-rounded wrestler. Not to mention that I’m going into this match expecting to win, I don’t care if he is a 2x world and Olympic champion. I’ve always had the odds stacked against me and I love the new challenges.
After a good mini cycle of training I’m headed to Las Vegas to watch my alma mater wrestle in the Cliff Keen Invitational and get ready for my week training camp with Coach Zeke Jones and Jordan Oliver in Tempe AZ.
It will be a long time away from home and my buddy Champ but Megan has promised to send me a picture/ video every day of him. I think I might be slightly obsessed with our dog but I think it is a healthy obsession.
Hope to see some of you around. And if you see me on my travels and mention that you read my blog, ask for the promo code to get 10% off of my official apparel.
