A few weeks ago I packed up my car and headed south to Chula Vista, California to train with the USA Rugby Team.  I am excited for my new adventure, but also understand the grit and the work effort the sport demands.  Every day I feel challenged whether it is physically or mentally.  Each day I learn as much as I can and then try and retain all the information and put it into practice the following day.  I am amazed by the willingness of the team to answer any questions I have and assist me with the many mistakes I make. 

It is surreal that after spending the past year working and going to school, I now find myself again in an environment where I am surrounded by the Olympic rings and Olympic Champions.  Although I understand this will definitely not be an easy road, I am looking forward to having the opportunity to experience high level athletics from a different perspective and to see how my body and mind can adapt.  Tune in next time….
