Reno this weekend, Then off to Europe!

 Well guys this week has been a little bit crazy, im preparing not only for one of my favorite meets, the Pole Vault Summit in Reno, Nevada but im also packing for a 3 week stint in Europe.  Thats not all, Amanda and I have just signed a lease to move into our first house!  We are very excited to have some more space, a garage, and especially a backyard.  With all that going on it has been a little crazy this week to pack everything i will need for nearly a month.
For all of you who will be at the Summit this weekend, please find me and tell me that you read my blog, i may have a little something for you!  Also i will have lots of shirts for sale, so if you havent gotten one yet you can grab one from me there.
Im super pumped to jump this weekend, the crowd is always amazing and the runway is fast.  Im getting 2 new poles from Gill to replace the one i broke as well as a bigger one.  Let me tell you that I know if I jump on these poles 19ft will be no problem.  Ive been checking out the meets i will be doing in Europe and they all look like great venues, all of which will be new to me.  I have about 9 days between my first and second meet so i will be staying in Linz, Austria at an athletics club, so i should have plenty of time to update my blog and hopefully see some of the city. 
I jump friday night at Reno and i will def have some video up soon after.  Im feeling good, and Im ready to jump big, and i cant wait to tell you all about it.

Always Pursuing -Mark-
