I have been really bad about blogging…. sorry.  Anyways, I leave on Saturday for the U.S. Spring Nationals meet and I am more nervous than ever.  Training has been going really well, although doing it by myself has been a bit of a challenge.  I have definitely been struggling with ganors.  I haven’t been able to just relax and go after them.   It’s a confidence thing.  Hopefully, things will come together by the end of this week. 

I compete on Monday.  One meter first and then three meter.  Five dives on each board.  On one meter, there are 17 open spots in semi-finals and 48 girls competing.  On three meter, it’s worse-11 spots and 54 divers.  There are 24 divers in semi-finals, some of those spots, though, are already taken by pre-qualified women.  So, provided everything goes well, I’ll be amongst those top 24 women in the country.  That is truly my goal.  At the semi-finals, 8 women on 1 meter go on to finals and 12 women on 3 meter.  The top 8 women from the finals event in 3 meter qualify for the U.S. Olympic Trials. 

This is what it all comes down to.  Well, not really.  This meet is by no means the end of my career.  I’ll dive as long as I possible can.  Who knows, maybe I will qualify and do well at the U.S. Summer Nationals, only time will tell.  Wish me luck!
