Thanksgiving Post

Hey all. I have to apologize to the people that periodically checks my website because it’s been waaaay too long since my last post! I hate to condense everything into one post, but luckily it hasn’t been all that eventful so you guys haven’t missed much (I’ll explain why).

It’s been a tough couple of weeks to say the least.  First off, I came down with a cold, and when I thought that I had fought it off, I caught another one that was even worse than the first one.  The second time around, I stayed in bed for several days and was basically a living zombie.  No fever but mostly upper respiratory problems.  As soon as I was put on antibiotics my condition began to improve quickly, but after taking some time off from gym, I could tell that my stamina was way off.   It’s definitely the time of the year though when everyone is getting sick.  The temp is dropping in California and in some spots it’s hitting record lows.  Actually learned that placing objects to cover the space underneath doors to prevent drafts makes a dramatic difference in the temperature of your room.  Whatever you do, stay warm everyone!

As far as gym goes, I’ve been working to get back into the rhythm of things.  We were supposed to get into working routines last week but the fact that I got sick threw my schedule off.  What can you do though.  Sometimes there are things you just can’t control and you just have to learn to deal with things.  Looking forward to being good to go and having great practices by next week.

Similarly, my cold had some effect on my work outside of the gym.  I’ve been pretty much playing catch-up the last couple of days because of the days I missed.  The plan is to get all caught up by this weekend so I’m on top of my work by the beginning of next week.

I know it seems like the last couple of weeks have been pretty bad for me, but honestly it hasn’t.  The good part is I had the opportunity to go to the Big Game last weekend.  The Big Game is the annual football game between Cal and Stanford and it’s a fun game to attend given the intense rivalry between these two schools.  What made this game more eventful for me was that my ticket turned out to be in the Cal section (a good friend of mine that works for Cal gave me tickets).  It wouldn’t have been so bad if I wasn’t decked out in my Stanford gear, but the “Block S” on my jacket was like a blinding emblem to those Cal fans and they were quick to throw a comment or two.  The fans gave me a hard time but it wasn’t personal.  Luckily they didn’t have much to say when the game ended when Stanford football ended up dominating Cal.

Big Game!

Final Score - Yikes!

Well, it’s Thanksgivings and I hope everyone is enjoying their time with family and friends.

I’d like to end this post by saying thanks to my friends and family for their support.  My coaches for guiding me in the right direction with my athletic endeavors. Doctors for keeping me healthy enough to pursue this dream.  And all the soldiers out there for protecting this country, and allowing us to sleep soundly at night.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
