Last Chance

Well, today is the day. It's all or nothing. I won't be holding back. There will be no what ifs. There will be no regret.

I'll be going all-in and swinging for the fences. 

We have a small but accomplished field. The race goes off at 2:50pm MT. You can watch The Donovan Bailey Invitational live on flotrack starting at 2:15pm MT. Hopefully the weather co-operates.

Watch Live!

Come Together

Well, it's been a while since my last post. Some of it due to all the traveling I've been doing and some of it due to frustration.

My races just really haven't come together the way I would have liked this year. I've known that my fitness has been there for a while but things just didn't seem to be working out for me. Whether it be in a slow heat, a couple of re-starts etc. My 1500's this year have just been frustrating.

I knew Harry Jerome was going to be a good opportunity for a fast pace and it didn't disappoint. I came through the 800m significantly faster than any other race this year and I moved up really well in the last 200m. It felt really good to finally close well again; especially off a quick pace.

My final time was 3:39.32, good for 7th place behind all the Americans. I wish I had kept myself a little closer earlier in the race so I could have made my move from 4 or 5 places farther up...It was nice to finally put things together and have a breakthrough and I should be happy, I guess. But, I'm not. There is still a lot of time to cut off and not much time to do it in. So, there's no room for contentment or complacency right now.

I just wanted to provide a quick update as I'll be racing the 1500m again on Wednesday night here in Victoria. I know there was some more in there yesterday, so hopefully a new PB awaits me in the B.C. capital.
