So I enjoyed the couple of days I spent in Munich. I did some shopping, I ate well (I had some vanilla and mango ice cream for the first time. I'm still daydreaming about that!!! It was delicious!), and I just had a relaxing time all around.
On Thursday, I took the train and came to Stuttgart where the World Athletic Finals are being held today and tomorrow.
I will not be competing but I decided to come anyway and spend some quality time with my friends as the season comes to an end. So far I have had a really good time just laughing and hanging out. I don't think I've had this many jokes in a long while. My face was literally hurting last night when we were celebrating my friend Chandra's birthday because I was laughing so much.
I came here with a personal motto for myself which is "Be joyful at all times!" and so far I've been holding myself to that.
Everyone else will be in competition mode starting today so I will just be here to be as helpful and supportive as I can be. Its kinda weird actually to be here as a non-competing athlete, basically a spectator, but there are a few of us here in that capacity.
Anyway, that's it for now. I will definitely try to post some pictures later today from the birthday dinner last night but for now I'm about to head out to the track soon to help my friend Grace Upshaw as she competes in the long jump this afternoon.
I gave my best...
