Hi, all I hope everyone is doing well. I had the urge to pop back on here for a moment. My thoughts about the time I spent on here were brought up because I'm starting a blog on a weightlifting website to talk about my lifting stuff.
A link to that is here: http://wlforums.com/forums/showthread.php?1935-Jim-The-Third-s-Log
I also still post regularly on YouTube as Jim The Third. youtube.com/jimthethird
Besides all of that, here is a brief update to me the person.
I am starting my second year of teaching in a week. I am an Intervention Specialist for 4th and 5th grade, otherwise known as special education. I lift all the time now and have recently begun focusing on improving the Olympic lifts.
I spent the whole summer coaching baseball, my first time coaching, and I had a great time doing so. Being much stronger than when I stopped throwing has shown me how much more explosive I am as an athlete. I threw off the mound occasionally, mechanics felt good, but I pretty much strained a muscle every time I threw. It feels good knowing that I probably am throwing harder than I have ever thrown. We have some guys throwing in the mid 80's and our catcher thinks I throw faster than them. So there's that. It's something that's fun to still do, but I don't have any desire to go start working at that.
I also just bought a house, which I have recently moved into, so there's a lot to do with that.
I hope everyone on here is doing well and reaching toward's their goals. If anyone wants to reconnect or connect with me, please reach out to me on my social medias. I use Instagram and YouTube the most.
I put my YouTube above, so I won't put that again.

Have a great day everyone!
