Months, nay years, of tireless digging, napping, and egg laying has finally paid off. Not unlike a team of sled dogs willing to traverse the tundra for hours on end, we could not, would not quit until we could proudly offer #flystyle to our pet family.
On May 22nd, 2000 I wrote in my journal. I was a junior in college and I was running very fast. I had recently run 15:28 in the 5000m which was the fastest time in the country by quite a bit. I had also run 8:54 in the 3000m which was also the fastest in the NCAA. And I would run 4:12 in the 1500m at the Big 12 Conference Championships- also the fastest. Life was great. I was doing well in school, I was closing in on a national title.
