Tomorrow is a big day!
Tomorrow Jill leaves for Beijing, China. Jill is a young woman that Craig has been coaching for the past several years. She recently made the US Olympic team in the shot put event. On Sunday, we had her over for dinner. Craig wanted to watch some film with her of her throwing. The film was taken when she was throwing really far, before she got injured. She had back surgery just about 3 1/2 months ago. She has been throwing well but not as far as before her surgery. Craig wanted to get her motivated and he said it worked! Yesterday in practice she consistantly threw over 60'. Her personal best is just over 63'. Here is a fun picture of Jill, Ragan and Craig. Everytime a commercial comes on TV about the Olympics Ragan says, (in a little sing-song voice...) "My Dad's going to the Olympics" or "Jill's going to the Olympics". So, I suggested that we take a picture. She immediatly put it on her myspace page! Tomorrow is also the day we will be drawing a name to see who wins this toolbox! So, there is still a little more time for anyone that wants to pop in and leave a comment....... THANK YOU to everyone that left a comment. ALL the information has been very useful in helping me make a decision. Don't forget to stop by tomorrow to see who the big winner will be! Have a wonderful day!
