Old dog wanting to learn new tricks

 I have lifted since age 13, relied on the gym a great deal during the tumultuous teen years, and even competed in a few shows, the first of which wasn2008 and I just made my return at the iron Games this year. I was making tremendous progress, until I gave it all away during my battle with alcohol.. I am back and by the grace of God 4+ yrs free from alcohol, and I am ready to bust my ass and make up for lost time. My ultimate goal is a pro card, but as long as I continue to improve and learn, I'll be happy.

Welcome Brother. Nice to see

Welcome Brother. Nice to see you made it back to shore. A lot of us were in the same boat. I think you will find some great camaraderie here at MG and will fit in great with the rest of us Ol' Salts.

Members young, old or in between we all have experience to share. I never stop learning when I pop into MG.

Welcome to MG brother!

Welcome to MG brother! Congrats on 4 years!!! It's been about the same for me as well. Life is soooooo much better without that crap. Time is never lost, so long as we have learned from whatever we were dealt. Forward is where we are going, and looking forward to seeing you make gains and achieve your goals :)

Welcome to the family brother

Welcome to the family brother! I came back from being stationed in Korea as a full blown alcoholic. It wasn't until 5 years later the birth of my oldest son did I realize I needed to quit. Happy to see you sober and ready to chase dreams again my friend.
