The Long Journey

By Jacob Crossan

Sometimes as you go through life you may feel as if you are simply meandering through it, but I was never one for running away from a challenge. There are not many who see the rocky bottom and make it out, but I did. This is where I learned to stop saying “I can’t” and start saying “I can”. Changing this tiny, some would say, miniscule thing, instantly turned hopeless to hopeful, unappreciative to grateful and failure to success. I now consider myself “living the dream”, with a beautiful wife who loves me to death, a phenomenal job that never feels like work, and quite an amazing group of friends.  What more could I want? Well, that’s the easy question. WATL champion, though I still have a long journey ahead of me I am prepared to do what it takes to get there.

Every one of you has made a lasting impact on my life and I pray we all remain friends through the sands of time. In one form or another we have all let each other into one another’s personal lives and it’s such a beautiful thing. One of my favorite things about us all is the camaraderie between our axe throwing family. We build each other up, we lend a listening ear, and offer advice to one another. Whether it’s about axes or something personal I have seen us all lift each other up and it’s a magnificent thing to see. I am exactly where I want to be. This long Journey is such an alluring thing.
