Blessed and happy are some key words from this past week in Tucson Arizona. Blessed because I was given the opportunity to compete in 2 meets (Tucson Elite Classic on Thursday and USATF Throws Festival on Saturday) – both competitions with a strong field and some great guys. I’m happy because after 2 weeks of working hard in training and changing some small things… the outcome was great.
I finished Thursday’s competition in 2nd place with a throw of 77.26m (253’ 5”) and Saturday’s competition in 1st place with a throw of 81.44m (267’ 2”).
In the mist of being out there I was also able to try some great food.

Thanks to all who’ve helped me through kind words and donations. Because of your love and support, I’m able to continue my quest for Olympic gold. Your kind words fill my heart when I need that motivation on my last lap or that extra rep when I’m lifting weights. Your donations give me peace of mind when I have to purchase all the stuff that Mississippi use to. Every meet requires travel and hotel stay. On average my meets range about $1000.00 depending on which state and how much is airfare. Once again, thanks to those that have already donated. If you or a friend would like to make donations, it can be done by selecting the “Helping Curtis” tab. Once again, having the love and support from all my family and friends makes it easier to do what I love.
Now, after such a great week, I am back at it getting ready for the Chula Vista Field Festival in California on Saturday May 29th.
Thank you and much love.
