Bridging the Hurdling Gap

Marc Middleton and his crew from "Growing Bolder" came out to the track and did a short documentary on my coach Brooks Johnson. This is a great piece they put together.

As you can see from the video, I seemed to be the only one not training the day they came out and that's for good reason, I was coming off one of my nine hour sessions at the dentist and only had a jog and stretch workout.

Wow! Awesome interview I felt like I was watching a documentary on 60 minutes. Loved how Brooks said he's trying to stop you from being a Light Bulb and be a Laser. That was HOT!! =) I'm so proud of you David. Cant wait to hear about your races in London. Go get em Chipmunk!!

Ok, I usually have something positive to say but after reading your blog I have to ask: " What were they doing in your mouth for 9 hours?" I got to know.

Wow...what a legendary mentor. I had never seen an interview with him before this. I loved his 'light bulb vs. laser' analogy. You are so blessed to have him in your life. 'Keep those hands out' LOL can't wait to see you race (online) this weekend. GO get it!!

David, congrats on your last several races. I am coaching my son and would like know a typical hard workout day door you. I am also trying to find ways to make him faster in the 110hh. He is stuck at 15.00. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Also, do you know of any coaches in southern california that I could hook him up with. He will be a freshman at a mc that does not have a track program. Thank you for your help. He is truly inspired by watching you hurdle.
