Yesterday, a few of the U.S. team that will remain in Paris for a variety of days, headed out to Disneyland Paris. My favorite throwers, Aretha Thurmond and Kristin Heaston were there along with Aretha's son Theo (2020 Olympic hurdle champion), Mechelle Lewis, the worlds greatest athlete, Hyleas Fountain and myself.
In Orlando, I train at Disney everyday. Basically, I go there everyday. I have yet to spend time in the theme parks there.
I woke up late and hit lunch, everybody hit me with "D.O. you want to hit Disney?" I was like "Yeah, sure I'm not going to do nothing today anyway." So I had basically ten minutes to shower and get dressed because they were ready to leave.
It was about an hour train ride there. We spent from about 3pm until the park closed at 9pm out there. We rode several rides, ate and just had a good time. I'm glad I rolled out and experienced some more stuff in Paris.
Here's a few pics:
My favorite throwers and young Theo
Aretha definitely caught us slipping before this pic! I don't know what was so funny.Ride action
Hyleas was throwing water on your boy in that previous pic, so I caught her slipping and double knotted that hoodie on her while she was tearing this ice cream up.
Space Mountain had the best ride in the entire parkI basically finished the day off with a chocolate crepe, it was banging too!
By the time we left there, me and baby Theo was about on the same mission, tap city! All of our eyes were heavy on the train ride back. It was so much fun, I'm really glad I went out.
Today, didn't have very much going on, just had a good hurdle training session. The meet organization is still taking very good care of us, they made sure we got a car to the track and everything set up there. I think only Hyleas, Kristin and myself are still here, I need to find them to see what we are going to do about dinner.
