So when I woke up this morning I figured, I’d press record and let you guys know first. I won’t be long winded. You only get one super emotional retirement essay, and I used mine up last year. I really thank you guys so much. to every single one of you for supporting me. my family, my friends, my teammates, my competitors, I could go on forever. There’s too many. Thank you guys for allowing me to live my absolute dream. I wouldn’t change a thing. Love you all.”
