Thanks everyone for the kind words. Definitely hard to quit something you love so much and as a athlete you always tell yourself "you still got it" but there comes a time when you have to hang it up. I was very fortunate to have such a long career and I am thankful for all the people I have met on this journey. See you guys at the races soon....
