As 2009 rolls in so does a new indoor season. I've opened up on a good note and look to keep going full steam ahead! My first meet of the season was the Virginia Tech Invite in Blacksburg, VA. It was a pretty fun meet for me because I had the opportunity to interact with a lot of young athletes and see some old friends at the same time. I wasn't really expecting big numbers from this competition because it is so early in the season, but that's not exactly how it turned out. I ended up throwing my 20lb. weight 23.73m (77ft10.25in) which is a world leading mark right now. Not only that, but its also farther than I threw last year at the USA Indoor Championships! My friend and former coach Carrie Lane shot video of the competition so here is the winning throw:
My next competition will be the Millrose Games in New York City on January 30. It is a part of the Visa Series that ends with the USA Indoor Championships in Boston on February 28-March 1. So sign up for the automatic emails and when I update the site, you'll be in the loop! Thanks for staying on this crazy ride with me. This season's going to full of fun and excitement!
Peace and Blessings,
