Yep. So I didn't do too hot in Daegu. 5th place. 10.35. I'm better than that. I've run 10.3 with a bad body cramp.
I need to get in the zone. I need to get my mind right. The whole Jamaica situation really threw me off.
Now don't get me wrong - I'm used to country hopping and traveling, but I don't think I've ever been in such geographically dispersed countries in such a short time frame. Think about it.
I went from Jamaica to Korea and now I'm on the way to Manchester...and I've only knocked five days off of the calendar. I think it's safe to say that's not your typical travel schedule.
Whatever the case, I'm not executing like I know I can. I owe myself more than that. I owe everyone who has ever believed in me more than that. Real talk.
I've got faith in myself and more importantly, I've got faith in the awesome God that I serve. He's in control and He'll get things back in order. He always has.
And, I don't have a problem asking for prayers. So if you're the praying type (and I hope you are) pray for ya boy - and all of the athletes out here grinding. We do it because we love it, and we do it because we're able - and the prayers and stuff y'all post on Facebook and Twitter go a long - especially when you're away from the folks who love you. So keep it coming.
Anyway, I've got to head downstairs to the lobby to catch the bus to the airport. Missing the bus right now is not an option - that would be like putting salt in my wounds. Not interested in that at all!
Side note...you know, this blogging stuff is alright. It helps my psyche. It's like venting to a bajillion people you can't see. I think I'm a fan now.
I'll holler at y'all later. I've got a 27-hour travel day on tap - Daegu to Beijing to Dubai to Manchester and about eight hours in layovers in between. And you know what's really crazy? Right now it's 9:30 a.m. on Friday, May 13 Daegu time. I land in Manchester at 7:55 a.m. Friday, May 13. That means it will STILL be Friday when I land in the UK. You do the math on that. It should keep you busy until I land. LOL!
Here's to the longest Friday in my life! Ha! I've got to laugh at that one myself. Peace.
