1 I was having naps in between races and couldn't wait
till the day was over I won day 1

Peurto Rico this weekend
week I flew to Puerto Rico for an ABA National
round. This would by far be my favorite place that I

the Monday we arrived and I so wanted to go Scuba
Diving for my birthday. It was such an amazing
experience although I almost pulled out I was scared
at first, but once I got down 50ft amongst the coral
in crystal clear water with all the fish, I loved

The humidity played a big factor in racing, I have

you instantly sweat as soon as you walk outside.
Day 1 of
racing Dominique Daniels pulled me down the first
straight and cut me off. I almost came back for the
win but she got me on the line and I ended up 2nd
Day 2 I got out of the gate well, but Dom gave me a
big elbow causing me to crash and I ended up in 5th
it for racing for the rest of the year, time to rest
and heal. Next race is on the Gold Coast early
January next year :)
