So, I woke up this morning, and X hit me up asking me if I had seen the paper. I told him no, so he brought me the paper, and your boy was in there, headlining with Tiger Woods' story underneath mine. That's the first and probably the last time I'll be headlining over Tiger! LOL.
The article was just covering some stuff about Beijing and the Olympics. I told them the story of how I ate all my meals at McDonalds after that bout with the food sickness I encountered before competition and they ran with it.
After we ate, Joel, X, our assistant Coach Gary and me took a boat ride over to the Taronga Zoo.
The Sydney skyline from the boat
When we got to the zoo, we took a sky lift up to the entrance, that was pretty hot.
While up in the sky, I caught a quick picture of the elephants down there doing their thing.
We got up close and personal with some kangaroos, they weren't even caged in, they just had free range over their little area, Joel was pretty worried about that.
We caught some Kimono Dragon action too
I don't think I want any trouble with a baby giraffe, they come out the womb towering over your boy!
I don't think I was suppose to be touching the animals, but I couldn't help myself, at least there wasn't an incident.
We saw a whole lot of stuff, Tazmanian Devils, Lions, Tigers, Anacondas, Australia's biggest Python etc, but we had to get back for a lunch/press conference with the Australian Athletics Association.
The lunch was great, they honored the Aussie Olympians and Steven Hooker had a pretty inspirational speech about his journey to the Olympic Gold Medal.
Of course we had to hit a workout today too. I've been so tired at this time of the evening, my body hasn't gotten adjusted yet. Last night Joel said he was asking me if I was going to roll with him to grab some dinner and I was responding "In a minute". I don't even remember that at all! He said I even attempted to stand up, but I just laid back down on the edge of the bed with half my body off the bed! Somebody must have slipped something in my protein shake. I was out of it big time!
I better get it together because we race around this time Saturday night, so I don't need to be falling asleep in the blocks. I keep trying to get Maury to push the race up to about 11am, but I don't think that's going to happen.
I'm sure I will be alright.............I hope
