Well, I took 20 years off (the biggest mistake of my life next to not using critical thinking until I was in my 30s) to build my career and ensuing publishing company. Last year I realized my company is strong enough that I don't need to work as hard as I did when we first launched, so I decided to get back into bowling.

Last year I averaged 227, which is decent, especially after taking so many years off. But this year I have been enjoying some of the best performances of my career, and March was easily the best month of my bowling life. And it doesn't seem to be slowing down.

I bowled 300-784 on Thursday to cap off a remarkable month that included a 1,049 4-game block, including 814 for three games and I won the tourney. I followed that up with series of 760-760-784 and tonight I bowled 778. Over that span I averaged 260+, which is unheard of.

It just feels good to finally be back to what I was capable of 20 years ago. I wanted to write it down somewhere because I don't like to do it on Facebook.

Anyway, just wanted to share my success and wondered if there were any bowlers out there who can appreciate this.

I can certainly appreciate it. I used to bowl quite a bit, but only ever broke 200 once (that's one game), and not by much. My best average for a season was around 150. My brother was better than me, and averaged over 200 for a few years, but nothing like the numbers you are getting. So yes, that's pretty impressive! Bravo!

RE: Just tooting my own horn
Thanks everyone! This kind of run is really fun to be on and it's rare, so just like life I'm enjoying it while I can.
