Time is flying by and we are less than 100 days out ‘til the Olympic Games in Tokyo. These past 2 weeks has been a great training block of fixing some throwing technical ques that we (the team and I) feel need to be worked on and we are really onto something special. After starting off the 2021 season at the University of Montevallo with a 77.02m (252-08 ft), then to Texas Relays and throwing 78.92m (258-11 ft) and a few meets to train through, I feel great about the start. We continue the journey at a meet in Gulf Shores, AL this weekend and was blessed to have the opportunity to see and compete in the new Hayward Track in Eugene, OR the following weekend.
As we come to the end of another month, I was fortunate enough to travel with the team (USA Javelin Project) to help run a Clinic in Baton Rouge, Louisiana at LSU’s Campus. One of the things I love most about this journey is to have the ability to give back and help younger athletes take one step closer to their goals. It was nice to get out of the cold and be in 80 degree weather even with the humidity. I got to meet and help a variety of javelin throwers whom are interested and passionate to learn and Improve.
On top of helping with the clinic, the group and I were able to get some workouts in and have a great throwing session to display to the young athletes on what we are trying to teach them in real life action. Now I head back to Alabama to continue training and hopefully have my season opener in March…
As I enter into my 25th year of my life I sit back and appreciate all of the blessings and opportunities I have been given. I thank all that have been a part of the journey and have helped me become the person I am today. That includes each and ever one of you, for all of the continued love and support from the beginning beggingto the end. I could not be happier with having y’all for the journey. February 8th 2021 I spend my day doing something that I love and that I want which is training after work to become the best I can be. The season is almost here and I couldn’t be more ready to get back out there and to feel the chills of being back in these environments.
The moments of being in front of so many people gives you these goosebumps, chills, and adrenaline that can be sometimes unexplainable. These same feelings start to come about just thinking about it and as I type, it is the part of competing I’m looking forward to. So stay safe, stay happy, and hope y’all stick around for the rest of this journey!
So it’s good to get out and have some fun and relaxation outside of working and training. So instead of playing video games, which I normally do in my free time! The group decided we have some fun bowling.
It has been a while since I’ve showed my bowling skills off and man did I think they were way better than they turned out to be. No worries though the group and I had some fun and I was able to show off the new shirt in public. This was definitely a great way to enjoy the little things in life.
