The Past Six Months - Kinchen Packer

So I've haven’t updated in a while. I have had a lot going on in my life, some good, some bad, and I have tried several times to write a post, but was having some writer's block. To catch you all up...

 Back in July I injured my knee; it sucked. I had been training super hard and was feeling strong. I had surgery about a week later and was on the road to recovery. Fast-forwards 3 months to early September re injury, but this time I had to wait till October for my second surgery. This time I would have a faster recovery but a higher chance of arthritis in latter life. Since then I have been working hard to get back to full power, I have also tried to climb outside more. I’ve made several trips to Hueco and even finished a surprise 5th place at this years yank n yard. I am starting some more focused training next week and have high hopes for the up coming year.

On a side note one of my good buddies Benjamin Hanna is trying to raise money to go to Chile for the 2012 IFSC Pan American Youth Sport Climbing Championships. I’m positive he would appreciate all the help he can get so please donate at the link below.

Thanks Kinchen
