Anyone who does shows or has seen a BMX show knows in the end its wild where your bike will bring you. Last night we did a demo or actually a show with 30 models, tons of hair stylists, and a crew of dancers at Epcot for Redkin. Usually we are fruity and glitters spilling off our faces or worse yet

Went for a run today. Try to do this at least once a week if not more. No headphones, no music, just sunglasses and running shoes. This is how I clear my head but also push thinking. I can't text. No way of contacting me. No TV. Just a short time to be free. Like most days I will pass by people with
