This bit of recognition is long overdue. Since Day One, Maggie has shown great promise and determination. Not only that, she’s just super fun to have around. She doesn’t get to train as often as she would like, but despite that, she consistently makes steady gains in skill and strength. It’s been a very cool thing to watch. I often dish out playful digs on her being a “sandbagger” but only because it’s clear to me (and many others) that there is a big difference between her perceived capabilities and her actual potential. I’m looking forward to seeing what this new year will have in store for her. Please join me in honoring 2016’s first Athlete of the Month: Maggie Miller.
