I'm on Bleacher Report!

My "mid-life" crisis that started about 6 years ago with chasing my dunking dreams has resulted in me being in Sports Illustrated, SLAM Magazine, Dunkademics, and now Bleacher Report!

It makes no sense and is absolutely crazy! So grateful and so worth all the hard work I've put in.

Keep chasing your dreams - no matter how ridiculous they may be!

New goal! 40 inch vert!

Just in case anyone still reads this blog...I thought I'd provide a quick update:

A little over a year ago (when I was much younger -- age 44), I was jumping the highest I've ever jumped in my life at any age. And as you probably know by now, I was able to compete in my first dunk contest. It was a lifelong dream and it came true. It was freaking awesome! If you don't know this story, watch the documentary!

However, since then I've had not been able to get back to that level. I've had some injuries which didn't help things but probably the biggest factor is a lack of motivation. Once I had achieved the dream of competing in the dunk contest, my motivation took a serious nose dive. I started skipping workouts instead of skipping dessert! :)

So...I needed a new goal and here it is!!! I want a 40 inch (running) vert! I estimate on my very best jumping days leading up to the dunk contest and on the day of the dunk contest that I was jumping around 37". So it will take getting back to my peak and then some to reach this new goal. Is it possible? Let's find out!!!

I'm making a new series of videos called "40 over 40" (40 inch vert over 40 years old) and invite you to follow along as I continue battling Father Time and the laws of gravity!

Here's the Intro Video

Thanks for your support! If you actually read this, please post a comment so I know whether or not to spend any more time on this blog thing. I feel like no one reads blogs anymore...
