I’m divided between wanting to document everything I do in training over this next year, and not showing or saying anything at all and just letting my results speak for themselves. Last week, I saw that I was not ranked in Track and Field News’ top ten world list. I’m not mad, or bitter. Never mind what I think about the rankings, or how they’re decided. Do I agree? No. But as I’ve gotten older, I find that you can’t take these things personally. Between the number of times I threw over 78m and the 7-8 of their top ten that I beat, I think I’m better placed around 7-9. But that’s just me. Normally I wouldn’t care at all, but it will affect some funding I get from USATF, and that’s what makes it a bit unfair. So when situations like this arise, I want to shut everything off and just handle my own business. But I know I can’t think that way because I really do feel that I am doing right by my website.
