So it's been almost three months since I have been at home in Austin, Texas. Since early June I have traveled the world and nation competing and getting ready for the 2008 games. Looking back on those meets and practices, I know I gave it my all and never let up. In fact, when the tough got going, so did I. Each day I trained and competed I left everything on the pool deck. This means if I had a little left in me, I went back to something I needed to work on. If that didn't work I ran it out of my system.
I have no regrets. I gave it my all and thinking back I gave myself the best opportunity to win gold. Even though it didn't happen the way I wanted, I believe and can say I did it righ! Now that I am home, I am going to take some time to reevaluate things and my love for the sport of diving. I truly love what I do, but I don't want to make any rash decisions about continuing for another Olympics or retiring after more than 25 years. But if there is anything to say, the fire is still burning strong and since I believe I haven't met and reached my full potential...my first hunch and idea is to take it day by day, month by month and then a year at a time. If I have to say anything about my goals and how I have to reach them...well let's just say I going to give it my all and the best shot I can...but those springboard and platform divers are going down...no matter what country they represent.
