Me and my redheaded boy at an air show, 2002. #tbt

I have a column coming out about him this weekend, on CrossFit.com. It’s one of the most personal pieces I’ve done. But I think it’s important to tell our stories so others know they are not alone. I love this kid so much.

Me and Patti Scialfa in 2005. 
She entered the Rock + Roll Hall of Fame with the E Street Band last week. 

Me? I got wise and threw away that jacket! And I cut my hair!
