Before I get into specifics...
I'll start by saying this is not a comprehensive list of people I'd like to thank. That means you shouldn't get butt-hurt if I don't mention you specifically. If you've had any impact whatsoever on my life then just know I appreciate it greatly. I've had so many comments, messages, and tweets from friends and family around the clock since I made the Olympics and seeing the outpouring of love and encouragement has meant the world to me.
I apologize for the lateness of this post. I've written and re-written this post in my head so many times, but every time I've sat down to type it out, my mind has gone blank. I finally managed to force myself to sit down and bang it out. I know I'll never be fully satisfied with this, as I feel I'm not thanking everyone enough or really expressing just how grateful I am, but it'll have to do.
NOW ONTO THE THANKS!Read More
I spent most of June training and racing in Ghana and South Africa and spent a lot of my down time trying to de-stress and see the positives of weird situations by appreciating my surroundings.Read More
A few weeks ago I competed at my first ever All-Africa Games in Brazzaville, Congo, and of course, I had to vlog my experience! Watch as I train, get accustomed to the Congo, and support Ghana in all its glory. Don't forget to like, comment, and subscribe!Read More
My last week at the All-African Games sped by much faster than the first one. Once Sunday hit, I barely had time to look for WiFi or watch any other event that wasn't happening at the track.
The 100 preliminaries and semi-finals were scheduled to be on the first day - the first round early in the morning and the second later in the evening. This was the first day that the temperature outside actually reached a point where I could positively say it was hot. Even the ever-present fog lifted that day, and left the sun beating down on us during warm-ups.Read More
It's only been three days since I've returned from the Congo, but it still feels like a lifetime ago. There are things I miss when I get back from bigger meets like this one - the teammates I rarely get to see, meeting so many new people, the feeling of pride that comes with competing for Ghana on an international level - just to name a few. Overall, my time Brazzaville, Congo was OK at best. A lot of things didn't go as expected, but I've learned over time to just roll with the punches and make the best of every opportunity I'm given.Read More
