A great end to a great trip. Both Lauren and I took the team's 5th and 6th medals, making our team one of the most successful US taekwondo Pan American Games ever. It was truly a blessing for us all!

I'm in Houston, TX now and we have all gone our separate ways. I can't truly say that not only are we all much stronger fighters now, but this was a trip of a lifetime. It's been an honor and a privilege to get to experience the Pan Am Games, and I loved every minute of it.

Thank you all for your prayers and support. This will be my last USAT blog until the next event, but I hope I managed to do even a fraction of justice in describing our 2011 team.

Thanks for following!
