Don't listen to those who say, 'You're taking too big a chance.' Michelangelo would have painted the Sistine floor, and it would surely be rubbed out by today

It was cool. Technically I put the race together pretty well. It just needs to be quicker. I don't fell like I have my race rhythm yet but it will come.

Doha was a beautiful city. Dani Travis and I was taken to lunch by a good friend of my coach. I have acquired a taste for Lebanese food. lol

Also I was taken around the city the day after the meet by Abdual Yusef who used to run the 800 for Dakar. His driving skills were interesting. At one point he drove into the back of some poor guys car. When the guy got out to inspect the damage and discuss what would be done regarding repairs. Abdual winds his window down an crack and say. (I shit you not) 'Hey man, your driving a Kia and Im driving a Porsche. Go!' With the flick of a wrist he fanned the poor guy away like a fly. He had no choice but to get in his now damaged car and drive away. Hmmmmmmm
