“This is what I used to be really good at.” Tyler Erb said as he crossed the finish line, “It feels good to come out here and just drive the dogshit out of this thing.” “Everyone in our family and close friends is keeping an eye on this.” It would be more convenient for me to say it once and be done…” “My father, who is my best friend on the planet.” We arrived in St. Louis, and he died on Wednesday of a heart attack.” “I sincerely apologize to all of my friends.” It’s difficult for me to say anything.
I sincerely apologize to each and every one of my friends. I’m going through a lot and trying to keep everything to myself.” “I decided it would be best if I stayed here and supported my mother.” I still adore her and will do so in the future. Don’t think of this as a sad story. This is the most terrible news I’ve ever heard in my life.” The audience erupted in applause. “I just raced with it in the back of my mind,” she said. He was most likely assisting us this week.” “From now on, I just have to take life every day,” Erb concluded.
