    Should I quit?

    1032004, that morning run was the best part of my day, often. it gave me energy and confidence that carried me through the day. i KNEW i could outwork all of my classmates, and teachers. did they get up and run 5 miles before they got here? nope. i sat feet away from them not intimidated by perceptions that someone didn't approve of me or my efforts. i felt in the greatest control of my day and my success than i ever did before, on the strength of that morning ritual starting my day. i was MORE alert, MORE ready to learn than i was following any other routine. MedalMan, so, how'd it go? where are you in your though process now? feeling better?

    Alternatively, you could continue with your commitment to the morning run and weight lifting. Whether you wrestle or not, these are great life habits. My grandfather always said if you don't do it when you're young, you won't when you're old! Nothing in this world worth a damn is easy. That said, perhaps the changes you might consider are on the perception side of things. Ask yourself (as in, do not answer here): --How is my attitude and outlook? --Might I feel differently if I was near the end of a great season? --Am I focusing on what I'm missing out on, rather than what I'm gaining that others are missing out on? Like many other things in life, wrestling is hard. That bears repeating: Like many other things in life, wrestling is hard. That means that it will, by definition, bring you to these moments, and these questions. Do you know what else will? --college --marriage --parenthood --career --getting / staying in shape --bills While you will be making choices and commitments the rest of your life, every one you make will be predicated on what you achieved by your previous choices and commitments. That is to say, every day we set a pattern of living that we will begin tomorrow with. Ask yourself what kind of person you want to be. Chances are that if you have a pulse, your choice will necessarily involve some commitments that will bring you back to these very tests you're facing now. What kind of person do you want to be tomorrow? Are you becoming that person today? Okay, no judgement here, bud. Honestly. Wrestling is tough. I'll put you in my prayers, because I know you're facing a very tough set of tests right now. Much love and respect, and good luck. Whatever you do, be brave, don't sell yourself short.

    i'm pretty sure pragmatic more than pc would be the term to define a gent what's adept at patching holes in single wide roofs.

    Sammie Henson’ and son plans?

    i'm guessing the defensive wrestler is defending a single to his left leg, which is raised over the attacking wrestler's shoulder. the defensive wrestler's head is down below the level of the knee of the leg that is raised. still not a pretty picture, but it's the most sense my eyes can make of it.

    Article about Snyder-Sadulaev match

    sgallon, i've seen some good posts from you before, and continue to respect you for that. i'll not engage you on the topic you seem frothing to debate. i do hope today is a better day for you, friend. and please don't give in to the temptation to read that with a note of condescension of disrespect; i mean it from a place of kindness and respect. hope to see you around sometime.
