It’s Been a While

So it’s been a pretty long time since I’ve updated my blog, and quite a bit has happen.  I’ve been training my butt off and I’ve survived my hardest base training season EVER! Training has been taken up to a different level and I feel like its really paid off. 

In December I was able to go to a training Camp in St. Kitts (with the help of several great friends) then after Christmas it was time to get my game face on.  Last year I didn’t run an indoor season because I was in Trinidad, so opening up on Sunday felt a little foreign.  First of all, I don’t think I’ve ever run on a Sunday, and second, this is my first season competing out east. 

The races went pretty well none the less.  I ran a 60, which I haven’t ran since 2006, and a 200.  Both in the heats and the final for the 60 I was able to run a new personal best, 8.01, and in the 200 as well, 25.50 for an indoor personal best.  I can feel myself getting stronger and quicker and its nice to feel it pay off.  My starts are getting a bit better but they still need a little bit of work.

This weekend I will run a 300 at the University of Toronto and I’m really excited.  I feel better this week I did then last week and I’m ready to run another personal best.

Just wanted to let you know that I am so proud of you, I am so happy to see you following your dream. Iknow daddy would be so proud of you.
