Ponce Grand Prix Preview

Tonight, I am making my first appearance in a competition here in Ponce, Puerto Rico. I have never been down here before, whether it was for business or pleasure, and I have been thoroughly enjoying my time down here. Most of the training group has come down to the competition, Brooks, Xavier, Dwight Thomas, Moushami Robinson and myself all made the trip. It's fun when you have a lot of your training partners and coach at the competition.

I've been here since early Thursday, haven't done very much actually. Had a great training session Thursday, I've been enjoying the local cuisine also. I had a press conference yesterday with local hero, 400 hurdler Javier Culson and 400 meter runner Jeremy Wariner along with the local meet organizers.

You know I have ADHD, so I have a hard time paying constant attention in these press conferences especially when they aren't speaking English! Thank god for the blackberry lol...

After the presser, a group of us hit the mall, it didn't have very much to offer, but you know I was able to find something to swipe my card for. Then we hit the beach, it is very lovely out here, I definitely will find my way back down here for some leisure time for sure.

I don't run until around 10pm tonight. Pretty late I must say, so I will find a way to take a little nap this afternoon for sure. It should be a good race, David Payne is running as well as Dwight and Dexter Faulk. Training has been going great lately, I don't have a time goal in mind, but whatever the meet record is, I have set my goal to destroy it. I guess I better find out what it is because if it's something like 13 flat, I don't know about destroying that LOL.

Hope you didn't get burnt out there on the beach. You forgot to call me to rub you down with sunscreen.
