One of the joys of working in a sports career is that during my busiest times of year, I'm also energized.
What do I mean by this?
I'll use my current situation as an example. We're currently preparing our coverage of this year's Breeders' Cup World Championships at the Oak Tree meeting at Santa Anita Park. While my workload increases this time of year, I'm also energized because horse racing is something I love.
As the top horses in the world prepare for the Breeders' Cup, we're a small part of that excitement in documenting all the news leading up to the races. Knowing that we're covering one of the great sporting events in the world pumps everyone up at Thoroughbred Times.
So I'm busier, but it's a good busy. In talking with other people in sports careers: broadcast media, coaches, trainers, sports information workers, promoters, of course athletes, and many others; Top events give everyone a spring in their step.
