Tomorrow begins the battle for the 2014 Short Track Olympic team. 4 years of ups and downs all come down to this moment. In times like this I like to think back about what all has gotten me to this opportunity. Most of all I have to realize and remember the people who got me to this moment. Whether it be my wife, mom, family, friends, teammates, coaches, or even random people who have inspired me along the way in ways they may never realize. So, despite any results (good or bad) that come from this trials, I'd like to take this moment to thank each and every person that has been a part of my life up to this point. Whether good or bad, you all have helped to shape me to the person I am and helped give me this opportunity to potentially represent the greatest place on earth on the biggest stage that i know of. I love you all and you'll be with me on this journey!
