Succeeding & Proceeding in Japan: Flo's World Championships Journal (Part II)
My daily routine as the head men’s coach consists of breakfast, morning practice, lunch, evening practice, dinner and staff meeting and sleep. There is simply not enough time to shop and sight see. However I am delighted to announce that being around all of these star athletes has motivated me to return to training … I am running well inside a 10-minute mile and lifting heavier than a 12-year-old child can.
In my attempt to bond with the athletes i have learned that they are video game experts and that an old man such as myself has no business challenging them at any video game. I continue to expand my knowledge of gummie bears, fruit snacks, Instagram, Twitter and snapchat.
The Wildcats, Kendra Harrison and Dezerea Bryant are fittingly together, deserving team USA members and as inseparable as they’ve always been, even though they’re now in Asia, not Lexington, Ky.

Above – Floréal shows on Twitter that Kentucky’s heavy-hitters – Dezerea Bryant and Kendra Harrison – are getting along just fine with rivals/friends Jasmine Todd and Jenna Prandini of the Oregon Ducks.
On Thursday Coach Flo will share his initial thoughts from Team USA’s arrival in the Chinese Capital, which included witnessing a showdown between the individuals who figure to be key protagonists in one of the 2015 IAAF World Championships’ most anticipated races.
