Big Time Show and Thank You's.

Wow Mammoths I am stunned by the show and the sheer amount of goodwill people have been sending me. I need to thank a lot of people but first I would like to thank Jackie for being the best wife EVER! She has put up with me and my shenanigans for a long time and without her I am nothing.

I would then like to thank Bob Wright for believing in me, even when others evidently did not! Bob Wright is the kind of man you want in your life because he is a straight shooter and will tell you what you need to hear. Jeff Ford is also someone really special in my life. He not only believed in me he trained me. Without Jeff there was not way I would be able to have finished the race. Big ups to Amber who also had no problems telling me it is okay to back off a bit. Amber is an awesome trainer and a great person. Last but not least (even though he did go to Florida) is Adam Martin. Adam helped design a lifting regimen that strengthened my legs, core, and shoulders to make it possible for me to run. Adam was always there with an encouraging word and the idea that you can do it.

I would also like to thank the folks at Tijuana productions. Especially Tim who wrote my episode with Lindsey. Erin Flynn for making me look like a rockstar and Adam for never doubting me and picking me up at the hospital in the dead of night so I can get back to training. You guys were awesome.

To the Twelve I love you all and I miss you all. I could not have done this without you especially Ronnie and Bill. You two were my inspirations and heroes. Always have been and always will be.

And thank you Jesus Christ for giving me this opportunity and the chance to be a servant to those who feel hopeless. I pray that they watch my episode and know that I know where they are coming from and that they can do it as well.

Its late Mammoths and I have to ramble tomorrow so...I hope to see you out on the range, stick close to a good watering hole, and as always be mindful of what you are grazing on.

  1. I saw your show last night, and found your blog while researching so I could write about your episode on my own blog www.blackbeansandskinnyjeans.blogspot.com. I have to say, yours has been my favorite episode so far. You truly inspired me (one of my goals is to run at least a half marathon this coming fall). You have an awesome attitude and obviously a "can do" spirit. I bawled like a baby when you reached the finish line and your wife and baby were standing there, waiting for you after not seeing you for two months. So proud of you and what you're accomplishing! Just wanted to give some kudos!
