It’s been a weird year so far for me. It started with the Classic where it was freezing cold, then yesterday I was in Texas where it was 104 degrees, and last night I got to Tennessee where it’s been snowing.
I went into the Bassmaster Classic® hoping to win, and probably pushed myself too hard beforehand. I had a bad cold and tried to push through it and ended up catching pneumonia during the event. I continued to try to power through the health issues and all that did was get me to the emergency room three times that week.
