Quote Of The Day
“After starting my master’s degree at Roberts Wesleyan College, I reached a crossroads in my life. I was at school hoping to be a school psychologist training for pole vault while working in a gas station making pizzas and cleaning bathrooms to make ends meet. It was all too much and I had to make a decision. I was a novice at the event and at that point there were many questions marks about my future as a vaulter, but that is when I decided to fully commit to the sport. I was no prodigy, who had everything handed to me. We were broke. I cleaned toilets to scrape together the money to stay at hotels for the meets and Rick remortgaged his house to ensure I could keep training. Fortunately, within a year of making this decision I had won my first US title (the indoor title) and in early 2006 I signed my first shoe contract.”
