Personal Update: I'm Getting Hitched

So, as a number of you know, I'm currently engaged to the love of my life, Kelsey. And, this Saturday, we are officially tying the knot! We'll be heading up to Boston for our honeymoon to enjoy the city, on top of training/talking shop at Cressey Performance (the co-owner, Tony Gentilcore, actually played a major role in my proposal to Kelsey last March). I'm pretty stoked to say the least, as I haven't taken a vacation in over two years now. Not to mention, we'll have a chance to have someone else coach us and write our programs for a change, train alongside many other like-minded individuals, and enjoy one of America's coolest cities during my favorite time of year (Fall). All this on top of the fact that I get to share it with my best friend.

And I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty darn proud that my bride-to-be can team up with her man to pick up heavy things off the ground without breaking a sweat. See the team deadlift photo below:

(thank you Ryan for coming to the rescue with the photo)

The best part about it was, upon setting the weight down, Kelsey turns to me, shrugs, and goes: "Meh, I say we definitely have 500 in us next time."

And yes (boys I'm talking to you), my lovely soon-to-be-wife is stronger than you. Not to rub it in or anything.

Anyway, all this to say I'm unfortunately going to need to take a hiatus from writing for the next week. I am, admittedly, a borderline workaholic and I've made a covenant between me, myself and I to refrain from anything work-related while I'm gone (not that I really consider writing to our loyal readership "work" per se, but it will be nice to relax away from the computer screen for a change). Not to fear, though! You will still get to read awesome content from Sarah and Chris as you usually do each week, AND coach Ryan may even make a celebrity appearance, so be sure to stay tuned.

I really can't thank everyone enough (primarily my family, friends, and the SAPT family) for all your support through this process. Looking forward to seeing you all shortly!
