Brotherly love

Hey so I know what brotherly love is after all....
I had to post this picture because I really didn't set this pose up I caught them in the bathroom hugging while Darius was on the toilet pooping!  I had to run and get my camera because no one would believe this! It is so funny to me....

Hello.  Well I'm on my way to race in a couple European meets.  I will first start in Tangier Morocco which is on the tip of Africa.  Well this is my first trip to the mother land and may I say I feel really stupid right now.  I heard Morocco and it did not dawn on me that I was going to Africa to race!  I will certainly take pictures and will post them later.  Anyway I am doing good during my long 5 hour layover.  No...I'm not complaining.  Well this is us on vacation at Leslie's wedding. It has nothing to do with my blog but it is a happy thought.  I wish my road dog was with I guess I got to go at this thing alone.  Peace.

I've seen it all...I've done it all to the fullest

My "Trials" Experience
Well first things first it seems like I made the team in this picture but as soon as I saw the time I knew I wasn't olympic bound.  I was a little upset at first but I can only mention a few things worst that I have experienced in my life than not making the team. You know them telling you your time won't make the cut.  Also Hazel is the only person this year in the U.S. to hit the A standard so she should be the only one really going right?  Maybe I'm upset but others had the opportunity to run an A last year when I was 25lbs over weight and still recovering from having Devyn.  I didn't have the opportunity to run an A standard to carry over to the next year, which sucks!  Is that fair tell me if I am selfish please.   But really I'm not that upset and like I said I have had a really terrible last 2 years so I can't complain.  This is a great accomplishment despite not being able to go.  Miracles happen everyday....
This Olympic trials was definitely a trial for me!  I can say I understand now why I use to run in the back and sprint like hell at the end.  When I run close to people I seem to fall especially when the pace is modest.  I fell once again but the Lord had another plan.  In my semifinal heat I got out but I wanted Schmidt to lead. So I kinda waited for her and I gave some other bone heads space.  This young lady must I say, tried to fit in on the inside and started to elbow me knowing she didn't have enough space to fit!  I started to fight back but the "fool" just wasn't letting up which started a domino effect of runners falling to the ground.  The girl in front of me went first, I was second, LSU girl was third, and Teeter hurdled almost becoming the fifth.  I just knew things were over for me.  Like I said God had another plan.  With much diligence I was able to get into final with my swollen knee and all my bruises.
Lessons learned.
1. Just get out and run when bone head is in your race...(she fights everyone)
2. Never underestimate the power of God
3. Should I say I made the team???(not a lesson I know)
4. Do not have anymore children until you are done with running!!!!(lol)
5. Stay positive and great things always happen
