I am so grateful for being named a recipient of the latest training grant. I spent a month training with Coach Fischer in San Diego before US Indoors then hit an all-time indoor PR at the meet. I am very happy with the progression of my season and see big benefits from training with him. To continue on my trajectory, I plan to travel to San Diego more often this spring and the Grant will be key in allowing me to do so. Thus, the Foundation is playing an essential role in my performance. I can’t thank you enough!
