Miami National Championships and World Cup Event

Oh yes..back in sunny and warm Miami.  Tomorrow starts racing at the first event of the 2009 season.  A race I’ve been waiting eagerly since the Olympics has ended.  It’s time to accelerate my learning curve and put out some top results this season. I feel good, I have been well prepared. I am about 5 pounds heavier than I was in China.  I have been working more on my technique and racing specific fitness.  But most important I’ve isolated my mind and thoughts, to give me this last chance.  To compete for me, to let me see how far I can live the dream.  To know I’ve left my mark in a way that I can live with satisfaction the rest of my life.  To be apologetic to those that have been frustrated in my isolation and concentration.  To know I spent every last moment enjoying the challenge, with the solitude of hopefully winning the gold medal. This is a rare position for me to be this euphoric over something I’ve done a million times.  Let’s win this thing!  Thanks for your never-ending support!  Let’s see how it goes tomorrow!
