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.

The All-African Games, Brazzaville 2015 - Week One

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.

VLOG | My Week With the Odd Couple

A few weeks ago, I managed to escape Boston after finding a few last minute track meets to race in.  I jumped at the chance to test my legs, and immediately went into a frenzy to get things in order and get to New York.  I planned on meeting my teammate, Flings, and her boyfriend, Ramon, when I got there, and basically hang with them for the week as we competed in New York and Canada.  In between those meets, I hung out at their home in Syracuse and we all basically became best friends, haha.

Week In Review | July 12

This past week has really had its up and downs.  

  • My past two meets have not gone well for me and I'm not sure why.  Most things have been feeling fine, from start to transition...Maybe I'm just not being powerful enough?  I'm not sure, but I'm going to try and work on it with Sanders (my coach).  Next week I have a meet in Nigeria, which I'm pretty excited/anxious about.  It's the same meet I wasn't able to go to last year, so this will be my first time competing there.  I'm hoping things will turn around there, both individually and with our 4x100 relay.  It's never fun when things are going your way, but I've been trying to keep myself pepped up with quotes and random thoughts to myself like this one...
