So far my strategy has been working. After making the Outdoor World Team this past summer, I’ve made my first Indoor World Team by placing 2nd, with a new indoor and overall non wind-aided personal best of 6.78 meters. (22’3” for the yanks). I really can’t tell you how good it feels to be able to start accomplishing some of the things I know I have been capable of for so long. I am jumping with a newfound confidence and an appreciation for every opportunity that comes my way. And I’m doing it all with a smile.
Below is one of my jumps from Nationals. I will tell you that what it’s not is my best jump. That happened to come on my first attempt when my videographer was not yet prepared to start her duties. This is a clip of my last jump, which actually would have been a very good jump but I dropped one of my feet before landing. Oh well… I plan on jumping a new personal best in the very near future. :)
The first video was a little hard to see so I added this second one...
I’d also just like to say thanks to you guys as well. My blog readers are on this journey with me in a lot of ways. I get so much encouragement and support from you all that it really makes me feel that I have a ton of people pulling for me. You guys are awesome!
