I am Divided
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.

Your results in 2012 will speak for themselves. If people think 2011 was great (which it was), wait until this year. You are set up for greatness. I can’t wait to watch it all unfold. Good Luck!
Do your thing, Kibwe. Share if you want to share, but your results will speak for themselves and you don’t need your name on a list to put a medal around your neck. 🙂
