Marcus Haley Retirement Announcement

admin January 5, 2014 Comments

“As I sit here in my favorite little breakfast place….I can’t help but reflect back on the year I had and what it means for the coming year. I have loved and lost I have tasted victory and been crippled by defeat. The sport of bodybuilding has given me so much but at such a great cost! I think of the opportunities I have missed as I stood by watching life’s traveling circus damn it makes me pissed. Then I smile when I think of all the people I have met and made smile on the way….if it was only for a moment as they said “hey!” For that was the life in which I had choose forever my legacy standing in time froze! I stand here half broken man ready for a new start…I so loved a sport that left me with an enlarged heart. Each time it’s skips a beat I’m reminded of the times…of my crazy life and how it unwinds. I have no regrets I blazed my own trail but now I will stand tall for this next chapter I will unveil. I hang up the trunks for its my last time thank you my friends and fans for our time together was truly devine!¬†

I will always love the sport of bodybuilding 

Marcus Haley”
