November is here and by now you should be back to your five or six step training and learning all the necessary skills to be a proficient vaulter. With that comes some cool meets that have to do with traditions such as Thanksgiving and Christmas next month. At the Vaulter Facility we always have a thankful meet and at that meet we make sure and take the time to have the athletes write a note to the parents expressing their thankfulness. When the parents walk in, they get the handwritten note from their athlete. Always a great way to start off the day and a thankful meet.

On the cover we have a club out of Illinois named Rise Pole Vault. “Tim Winder taught his sons the three big rules about the pole vault:

1) If you run through, you get worse.

2) If you take a jump up but do not finish it, you stay the same.

3) If you finish your jump, no matter how ugly, you get a little bit better. “

What a great teaching experience and article to read from a set of club coaches with years of experience.

It is impressive to read these articles that Daniel Bush submits to us each month. This one is a Halloween themed article that flows with the last couple articles over the last few months. “Annie stole the show once again, her braided blonde pig tails bouncing behind her as she bounded down the runway. After nailing another big jump, the roaring applause of the crowd drew a satisfying smile from this emerging elite athlete.” Better and better each month as this true professional shows us how the writing world manages business and a pole vault family all in one.

We all have so much to be thankful for and Abby explains some of and one of the nicest gestures that one of her athletes handed her this time of the year. “It can make us forget just how blessed we are to be able to compete in this amazing sport called pole vaulting! When you stop and think about it for a minute you realize that you can do something that many people never will get to.” Being thankful is peaceful for the mind and soul. Thank you, Abby, very cool.

Next month we have the Naval Academy on the cover, and they always represent in a spectacular way. We will see you next month with some Christmas cheer.

December always seems to be a more delightful time of the year. This is the case for pole vault and our great nation. Last month, we spoke of what makes us thankful and tonight, as I write this, it is Thanksgiving Eve. There is so much to be thankful for as we finish off the 2020 year. One thing that we are extremely thankful for is the photographers around the world that support this amazing sport. So often people have images taken of them, and many times there is a “like”, and not even a written thank you. We are very thankful for these types of people that sacrifice themselves for the best shot possible.

On the cover of the magazine, we have a picture of Sam Kendricks taken by Jeff Cohen. “All of my first heroes were track and field athletes.” Watching great athletes like Greg Foster, Mary Decker, Dwight Stone, and Mike Tully inspired his own love for the excitement of elite track and field competition.”This article is worth the read with experiences on and off the field. You will all enjoy this article from one of the top-notch photographers around the world.

Olympic coverage is far and few between and understanding how it will affect each of you is what Kreager has in mind. “Though many collegiate athletic conference’s began to feel the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic as they canceled their spring competition seasons to keep athletes safe, the financial strain on athletic programs has recently become clearer as schools have elected to cut their track and field teams.” Amazing information and so much to learn about the impact of Covid on the track and field community.

John Clark is spending a lot of time focusing on master’s athletes far and wide. This month John interviewed Angela Herzner and her journey as a master's pole vaulter. “Two years ago, Herzner started getting interested in competing in pole vault, and now, the 46-year-old Phoenix, Ariz., firefighter, and mother of two has her sights set on yet another title.” Mother of two and a firefighter is one impressive feat, the article should have been written about that achievement along. Good job guys, love what we see.

January 2021 is coming quickly, and the sport of track and field will open up or it will not. One thing is for sure, we will be here ready to go if it does. Stay tuned as we highlight the next photographer that helps us as a magazine and club in so many ways.
