I competed in a meet this Saturdays here at MSU. It was our inter squad meet for the track team and I threw as an exhibition competitor (that means that it did not count how far I threw for a place, I was doing it for fun). It was a blast and I did not do half bad. I threw the shot 44'1" (gliding) and the weight 56'3"(two turn), better than I thought I was going to do.
Also on Saturday we had a huge snow storm, we got about 6 inches of snow, which is not that bad, except for the freezing temperatures. Yesterday it was a high of -10 and today is a high of -5 degrees. My biggest worry was if our cars would start so Dan and I could get to work. Luckily they did and it was about -20 this morning. Now at work, it is cold in the weight room also, it is about 50 degrees inside, not the greatest insulation.
I also celebrated my 30th birthday yesterday, I cannot believe I am 30 already, I don't feel 30, well on some days I feel 90, but not all the time. Looking back I think I have done a lot in 30 years from learning to walk and talk :), to graduating College, going to the Olympic trials, getting a great job and finding the man of my dreams. In my 30 years I have met a ton of amazing people and made many great friends, but the thing that I think is most valuable that I have learned in my 30 years is that I do not know everything and I never will. I just have to keep using the common sense my parents gave me and do the best I can in life :)
Anyway, I had a great day at home with Dan snuggling on the couch watching movies and trying to stay warm. I ate way to much junk, which was fun, and I got a lot of well wishes from my friends and family, Thank you all.
Well I will try and post more pictures and maybe even video of me throwing later when I am not at work.
