Getting Older...But Jumping Higher!!!

I'm posting more often on Instagram so follow me there @overthehilldunker

At 44 years YOUNG, I'm on the verge of jumping the highest I have ever jumped and certainly the highest I've jumped in over 15 years.

I got a few really nice dunks on Saturday including a couple of 2 handers off the glass and know I could have had several more good dunks but there were a bunch of guys who just wanted to play pick-up so I was only able to get in a few attempts. Would have liked to try a few more windmills and other dunks I'm trying to learn but didn't get the opportunity. Next time!

Jumping felt so easy. It was also the first time wearing the Jordan 29s and they felt great. So maybe it was the shoes! So stoked with my progress and so stoked I set the crazy goal of being in the fitconutah dunk contest as it has pushed me so hard to reach my goals. No way I would have come this far without this big goal.

Go get your dreams!

My Two Hand Dunk - Hard Work Pays Off

Follow me on Instagram @overthehilldunker!

If you've been following my blog for a while, you know I've been chasing the two hand dunk for almost 5 years! 5 years! That is a really REALLY long time and so I felt it was worth a second blog post dedicated to this dunk which has eluded me for so long!

Anyone who has worked and worked and worked for something and finally got it...knows that achieving a big goal and dream is one of the best feelings in the world! It almost seemed like it happened in slow motion. The feeling I had when it went down was unbelievable!

Below is a longer video of the long awaited for 2 hand dunk. I had to use the song called "Welcome Chris" from one of the best scenes in one of the best movies of all time - Pursuit of Happyness when Chris Gardner (Will Smith) gets the job and realizes his dream.

I've visualized this moment while listening to this song over and over again. While this dunk is nothing compared to a lot of dunkers out there, for me at 44 years YOUNG to achieve this goal is a dream come true.

So blessed. So stoked. Can't wait to do it again and with some power!

Go Get Your Dreams!
