I’ve been in sports my whole life and always loved the grind. It’s the grind that gives a feeling of accomplishment and it feels good to know you’ve pushed your limits. I’ve always felt the hard work also gave mental strength. And there’s a pride in knowing all accomplishments are from that passion and that grind. I never thought there was a count but USADA stopped by @jacksonwink_mma and said I was the first athlete to have over 50 tests. Thank you USADA for your positive support and helping keep the sport clean. And thank you for my new spiffy jacket. I also know there are many organizations testing many athletes. Hats off to all the athletes putting that work in. I’m also laughing at my photo looking like a kid on picture day but just focus on River…. she’s quite a cutie.
