It was this time last year that I was sitting in the San Diego Airport on my way to Canada asking myself “Can it be true?”
Getting ready to board the plane in my fresh Oiselle duds, I kept thinking “Are they really going to sign a thrower? I know nothing about running other than I try to do as little of it as I can.”
Heading up to Canada my Twitter feed, Facebook page and Instagram blew up. Tweets of “Good Luck”, “Throw the rock”, “Thrower Love” came pouring in. I was shocked, not only by the social media love but they had not forgot about me.
I competed in the Gray Shimmel in Vancouver and Victoria, proudly. A sponsor and myself had finally come together after 7 years of being a “professional” athlete and joined forces.
Now this is where the waterworks begin. Passion and strength is what Oiselle and I share. Passion for this sport we love and strength because we are going to succeed no matter what. Oiselle came into my life when I needed support the most. From getting to meets, to the emotional support, to all the amazing clothes; that night at the bar made a HUGE impact on my journey to Rio.
So as I sit here in the Denver Airport I have to stop and smile. I not only have my friends and family behind me but I have a flock of ladies that will only help me soar to new heights.
Thank you ladies and cheers to the amazing times to come.
