My mind and body has finally come to rest after a whirlwind tour of the west coast.
One week in Canada for the NTL Series and a week home for the Ironwood camp can sure make you appericate down time.
Canada was amazing as always. Stepping off the plane and into the familiar smell of fresh air and pine trees is always a sign of good times. I competed at the Harry Jermone Classic on the 1st and the Victoria Classic on the 5th. Both were second places finishes in my new Oiselle gear; was looking to throw further but that is another story. Overall I am happy to end to season healthy and with a new sponsor.
As much as I want to be pissed that I didn’t PR and missed making the World Team, I have to step back and see where I was this time last year and where I am at now. The biggest difference is I am smiling and not crying. I am encouged for this next year, not hanging my head asking “WTF happened”. I have my health and a new TEAM to cheer me on through the next year and years to come. I feel like whatever happens from here on out, whatever it may be, I can take it with a smile.
After my trip to Canada I headed to Cheney, Washington of the Ironwood Throws Camp. This was my first time ever coaching at a week long camp. I was a little nervious with how I was going to do with breaking down the hammer into 5 days, making sure I covered all the points but with a great group of coaches and a positive mind set it worked out great. As much as the campers got out of the camp, I pick up a ton as well. The basics! Its all about the basics and you can never get to far away from the basics cues.
Now I am home in San Diego, catching up on laundry and bills looking forward to my trip to Seattle! I will then offical become part of the Oiselle team. The smile is only going to get bigger from here on out!
Hope everyone is enjoying the summer!
