The 2017 masters track season has begun! I had a blast jumping, albeit in the rain, this past Saturday at the USATF GA Open and Masters meet. I cleared a 2017 personal best. On to the National Senior Games this weekend. This bi-yearly event requires you qualify at a certain height, or place in a state meet. Check. Done. Really excited to try and bring home another NSGA gold medal in Birmingham, AL. Wish me luck!
