AUGUST 20, 2008
I just wanted to say congratulations to Colton, Blair, and Team Blackfoot!
I was lucky enough to start working with Blair back in `98.. 10 years later, numerous mx and snocross championships, X Games golds, etc.. and I have never been prouder of the ol’ paintballer. I want to THANK YOU for the journey to date, and introducing and recommending me to both JSR back in `01 and Colton `07. In Blair’s words last fall “You should train Colton.. besides being fast.. he’s a good kid with lot’s of heart”. Here’s to our next 10 years!
I also want to thank JSR for putting my training to the ultimate test over the years, inspiring me to learn more, our working together to assist Colton in `08, and most importantly being the epitome of a champion. I am looking forward to continuing our partnering in the future. (ps they sell Nutella outside of Quebec.. and leave the 2 strokes for chainsaws)
As for Colton.. besides the wins and championship, I believe you should be proud of yourself for understanding that every piece needs to be in place to build success. As we often discuss, I don’t believe success is defined by wins and championship/s, I think it’s about reaching one’s fullest potential. You definitely have more room for growth. Stay on track.. and there will be more success ahead. Thanks for entrusting in me, and I am looking forward to assisting you in achieving more of your goals. Good job this year!
Aron and Jimmy.. sometimes things happen beyond our control. Use it to make you stronger.
