I've been hearing form a few friends who are vaulting at the Texas State Invitational this weekend, which will include alumni vaulting with the college / open guys. Of the people I have heard from they are all between 17' and 18'. What have I gotten myself into? I just figured they would have a masters/alumni division, or even let us jump with the girls, but NO: we jump with guys who can vault really well. Somehow I'll find a way not to embarrass my 58 year old ass. I can only hope for a few decathletes in the mix. Just kidding of course. I'm sure I'm not the only older guy but I'm probably the oldest. That said my body feels pretty good. I leave tomorrow and will update you along the way. Thanks for being here. Bubba
PS - woke up at 4:30 AM this morning to head to the Denver airport to come home. Tomorrow morning I leave at 4:30 AM to go to Austin.
