He was a professional trainer, with his focus on being bodybuilding competitors, some of which he trained for 8 or more years during their time as competitors. So our minds were in the same place as far as long haul was concerned. He was also a competitor himself, so he was fully aware of what was involved in these competitions and the time that was involved. He was aware of .my goals. Long haul, could also mean for as long as I wanted to pursue it, not him.lol...you were a nano-second faster than I was.
