4 years and a handful of days in the past, I did one thing horrible: I introduced that I had pushed throughout the nation in 26 hours and 28 minutes, shattering the Cannonball Run document claimed by Ed Bolian again in 2013.
The date of my crime? April 1st, 2015.
Lots of people have been very upset. Lots of people have been much more upset after I retracted it.
4 years later, my good friend Ed Bolian—with whom I've since pushed cross nation twice, and who's featured as the present document holder on the finish of my upcoming film, "Apex: The Secret Race Throughout America," has put out a YouTube video about his emotions.
The lots of of feedback on his video are 99% destructive towards me, and understandably so. I am devastated by the hostility Ed has dredged up in any case this time. I perceive why he stays deeply triggered by the occasions of 2015, even all these years later, so, upon reflection, I made a decision to publish a video that clarifies my emotions about what occurred, and the way I really feel about Ed immediately.
It's my hope that Ed can internalize my message in a therapeutic manner, and that our friendship can thrive shifting ahead.
REMINDER: Someplace in America, a toddler goes to mattress hungry tonight.
