Back In Beijing


It's a week away from my opening round today. As you know, I came back to the village yesterday. Brooks, Tiff, Kenta and myself went over to the Birdsnest Stadium to the warm-up facility. Our trip was mainly to see how long it took to get from point A to point B. The stadium isn't very far from our housing.

Of course, I had to eat in the dinning hall of the village and it's crazy, you sit down at a table and you have Rafael Nadal and Pau Gasol on one end across from you.

I don't have very much planned for the day, just a little lifting. I will be back on the track tomorrow for some light work. I will more than likely head down to the NIKE place later on with Miguel Pate. Later tonight, me and Kenta are going to go catch the Team USA women's basketball game, we tried to get tickets to last nights men's basketball game against China, but you know that was sold out. My goal for sometime this week is to head down to the aquatic center and catch Micheal Phelps win one of those Golds!

I just wanted to pay you a compliment. I saw you in Essence magazine (I realize I'm a little late). It always makes my heart smile when I see my young brothas being positive role models. I work with disadvantaged kids daily and see what hopelessness and helplessness does to their spirit. Thank you for taking the time to care about young people in your community. If no other sister is appreciative enough to recognize and tell you, then let me be the first. Your character truly makes you a beautiful MAN inside and out. Keep doing what you do darling and be blessed. I will be watching for you to do and be great in Bejing!

Sounds like so much fun! So awesome that you're blogging from Beijing. It's very cool to hear about it from an insider's perspective. And you'll be glad that you kept a "journal" of your experience.

Good luck in your races! Get that gold!
