Last year I had the opportunity to meet Kevin Jagger of Long Track Long Shot as a result of my friendship with his brother, Stephen Jagger. Since this meeting I have taken every opportunity to support Kevin’s journey on long track long shot, which included a great weekend in Vancouver, several twitter conversations, and numerous blog interactions. After our first encounter, Kevin wrote a blog entitled “What an athlete can learn from a farmer.” It was insightful, funny and written almost prior to my leaving his dorm room at U of C that morning (that’s another story). I was impressed with the speed and efficiency by which he could collect his thoughts and put them into words and realized this is part of why following his journey would be so interesting. Since this time I have been waiting to write a response; however, I realized I needed to learn more about Kevin before posting. Almost a year later, I think I have learned enough to put my thoughts down in writing.
