Reno: Live Update...

I'm pretty content with my performance, not so much with the final height and not at all with the technique of the second half of my jump.

I'm standing here in the Reno Livestock Events Center, typing on my sidekick...hoping somebody is up reading this...hahaha.

It was a very fun day...thanks to everyone that approached me with a handshake and comments...Bryan, Collin and Brian...also Scott Houston...Coach Mitchell and the Akron Zips for letting me borrow a pole after I ran out (twice).





Some facts from the meet (I am currently walking witha pole bag on my shoulder and typing this entry....talented texter):


-Highest jump from 8 lefts
-Highest jump from 14'6" grip
-Biggest 15' and 15'6" pole from 8 lefts
-Highest jump in Reno (for me of course)
...and much more.

Nice rips! Looks like that runway was banging? When did you end up getting your drawers back from the airlines? Looking forward to watching more.
