A bit of background on who I am. My name is Tucker Saye, I’m 29 years old, and I live in Loveland, Colorado. From the age of 10 to 25 racing motocross was my passion. I dreamed of racing against the best in the world and for years that was my sole focus. Everything I did was to benefit that end goal. I never considered myself a runner, in fact I never ran more that 4 or 5 miles in a single day until last year. In 2014, after racing at the professional level for five years and reaching every goal I had set for myself, I decided to step away from motocross as a career and pursue other life goals. A year after I made that decision I was living in San Diego and working, racing on weekends purely for enjoyment. On Memorial Day weekend in 2015 I went out for morning practice at an exhibition race, a fun 4 lap event at the pro national with nothing on the line but a good time. Shortly after getting on the track I made a mistake, overshot a jump, and landed with force that I had never, and have not since experienced. To keep this brief, I broke both of my heels and may humorous in the crash and spent the next 2 months in a wheelchair. I remained positive and immensely grateful my injuries were not worse, but that day changemy life.
