Good Morning!

I can't believe it, but Worlds are actually finally here!! It seems like something we've been talking about for so long and preparing for. I leave the country today for a training camp in Australia and then on to Christchurch, New Zealand. Competition begins January 21. As much as I'm there focusing on what I'm there for, I do like to know what's going on back at home especially because I still have to wait until the end of Jan for competition to actually begin, so keep the Facebook messages and email through my website here coming!

Some have asked how to follow or tune in. Here are a few websites where you can track my progress:

The official event website is: IPC Athletics World Champs
This website will have results relatively quickly once events are over. When I can or when my web team has time, my own website will be updated too at: you can also sign up for blog updates there too. Many events will be broadcast live and videos posted after at:

My competition schedule is as follows:
Saturday Jan 22, 2011 @ 10:20 AM or 10:25 AM: 100m prelim ( = Friday Jan 21 @ 330PM CST)
Sunday Jan 23, 2011 @ 9:45 AM: 100m final ( = Saturday Jan 22 @ 2:45 PM)
Monday Jan 24, 2011 @ 6:45 PM: 800m final ( = Sunday Jan 23 @ 11:45 PM)
@ 7:25 PM or 7:31 PM 200m prelim ( = Monday Jan 24 @ 12:25 AM) **Note: this might change, as we have protested this because of how close the races are to each other.
Tuesday Jan 25, 2011 @ 11:55 AM: 200m final ( = Monday Jan 24 @ 4:55 PM)
Thursday Jan 27, 2011 @ 12:00 PM: 4x400m final ( = Wednesday Jan 26 @ 5 PM)
Friday Jan 28, 2011 @ 11:32 AM or 11:43 AM: 400m prelim ( = Thursday Jan 27 @ 4:32 PM)
Saturday Jan 29 @ 4:40 PM: 400m final ( = Friday Jan 28 @ 9:40 PM)

And to close, from "In the Zone" by David Banner,

"The crowd is roaring, every eye is watching
Now my heart is pumping, waiting for the second
My life has lead me to this very moment
And Im going to own it,
YEAH I got to own it

Its like Ive seen this all before
Dreamed it a thousand times
No matter what Ive been through
The games already mine"

Thanks for following me on this journey, and feel free to pass on to whoever as well.
