Tobin’s Take on Healthy Athletes: Day 5 of Competition

Allen Tobin and Riley Hesterly

Today I had a great morning. I was in the line to get some frozen coffee and I started talking to two ladies from the Wyoming softball team and when I got up to order my drink, they said to put mine on their bill. They insisted that they should pay I thanked them.

I would like to say thank you to those kind ladies.

I went to help at awards to take pictures of the athletes and unified partners getting the medals until I had lunch with coach Stan and muscle man Tanner Hrenchir. I went with them to Healthy Athletes to take pictures of them that way I have pictures of all the sports in Healthy Athletes then I went back to help at awards

Finally, I got to see one more of my friends I have not seen in a while, “Wild Arm” Jeremie Ballinger

I would like to say thank you to Jacob Conklin for helping with this blog by glancing over it before I send it in to get posted and also thank you to all the Team Missouri media for helping me by posting my pictures and posting my blog.

I would like to say thank you to Jana Fornelli for being my help around until I got to know where everything was located. Thank you to Melinda Wrye-Washington for flying with me and Lynna a day early to be able to give speeches on Saturday and always helping all of us out with anything we needed. A huge thank you to Susan Shaffer and Krista Evans for believing in me to serve as part of the health and wellness team. Thank you to all the volunteers, staff, and coaches and fellow athletes going though Healthy Athletes and making my week here a very joyful one.
