Don't Call It A Comeback

Has it really been three months since my last update? If the new year coming and going is any indication, then that's definitely right. I want to see I lost track of time, but I feel like I've never been more aware of time in my life. It seems like I always have simultaneously all the time in the world, yet never enough to satisfy me.

2017 | Hang In There

2016 has been a weird year. My first inclination was to describe the year as a wash. I feel like I haven't progressed as much I wanted to in all the ways I wanted to. There are still so many things I need to work on, and as every year passes it's getting a little harder to say "It's OK. I've got time. I'm still young."

Giving Thanks

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!

BRAZZAVILLE WEEK TWO & THE END OF MY OUTDOOR SEASON

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.
