I typically try not to inject too much of myself into the stories here at My Athletic Life; however I have some pretty cool news to share.
Several weeks ago, I was asked to be the editor of a new blog for the Track and Field Athletes Association (TFAA) basically working to help elite athletes with information on life outside of training and preparing for competition. I am incredibly honored and jazzed about the opportunity.
And with the Olympic Trials and the Olympic Games just a few weeks away, the world will once again turn its attention (as it does every four years) to track and field. For a few days this summer, everyone will become a fan, and life will be good.
But my interest is in helping to elevate the sport beyond the laser light show that will happen in July and to cultivate ongoing interest in the competitions and competitors.
So, if you are a fan of track and field, swing on by – a number of excellent posts are already on the site including:
How Much Money Do Track and Field Athletes Make by Jack Wickens, and
The Players Must Be At The Table If They Are Also To Be The Meal by Toni Reavis.
And now that the TFAA site is up and running, I will get back to a regular posting schedule here. Thanks for reading.
