Age Challenge [10 years] 🤔
I'll bite 👌🏾

~2008 picture comes from the "Live Free or Die State". Captures the mood just below the finish at the USA National Mountain Running Championships where I became the first Black American to make the USA World Mountain Running Team. I was hurting as one of the guys who got me into the sport, Simon Gutierrez pushed the pace on me over and over. He was 40 years old and strong as an ox. Simon went on to take 5th, breaking the Masters record which I assume will stand many years. I took 4th that year as I witnessed how the sport of mountain running was 'different' first hand. The winner would by far be out of the top 10 in a road 10k or half marathon that day. That didn't matter because that day we were running uphill for 7.6 miles climbing steeply above treeline. All of us "fast guys" got a free lesson from the teacher Mr. Blake! One of the best performances I had seen at that point. #schooled

~2018 picture was taken maybe 90 miles away up another mountain in New Hampshire which served as the USA National Mountain Running Champs as well as the North American Central American and Caribbean Mountain Running Championships. I was able to take home the National Mountain Running Title (#6) as well as my 6th straight NACAC Mountain Running Title. Was humid and muddy. I remember feeling like I needed a shower before cooling down 🤣 I also remember that being the quickest doping control I've ever experienced after a race. I was ready to go as soon as we opened the pee pee cup 💧😉

The difference: Little less hair in 2018 than in 2008. Guess it moved to my face instead 😂 Smarter now than then. In 2008 I would underestimate competitors and was overly confident. Today, I'm a realist. No need to lie to yourself. When you are in the middle of the fun in a tough race, those lies will haunt you, trust me!
