I'm debating throwing my hat into the ring to compete in the Abu Dhabi trials. I think I've written about them before. Here are details: http://news.adcombat.com/article.html?id=12009.
The main reason to throw my hat into the ring is that I've been training a lot and feel like I'm getting better.
The main reason not to is because I haven't been training nearly enough to prepare for an event like this. My cardio isn't where I want it to be and neither are my takedowns.
I have my resume and cover letter written. (The resume is extremely short.) The email is written too, and the resume and cover letter are attached. The email has not yet been sent. I'll sleep on it.
