As I enter the last few weeks of prep for the World Champs, I had a chance yesterday to relax a bit and do another one of my favorite things, get my picture taken! My friend Paul, who was a teammate back at Coastal, is now a professional photographer. (http://www.paulscheuerphoto.com/) We met up yesterday for a nice photo shoot, and I had so much fun! Paul had some great ideas and the pictures turned out really cool. Here is my favorite one so far:
Tyra Banks, eat your heart out ha ha ha ha!!! I know I'm usually cheesing in my pics, but I was channeling how much hard work I had to put in to earn the right to wear this USA uniform once again. Its been an uphill battle every step of the way, but I'm still fighting! I have so many amazing people that are praying for me, and cheering me on that even when things get rough and issues arise that I have no control over I can press on. So it turns out that my coach Dr. David Vandergriff won't be able to coach me in Daegu during the championships. It really sucks, and I'm super bummed about it because we've been working really hard to be as successful as possible, and now he won't get to be there to see the hard work pay off. I guess that's all part of life, adapt and overcome right? Anyway, I leave in less than two weeks with just a bit more motivation to do well.
Love and Blessings,
