When Athletes Blog: Olympic Hopeful Brianna Glenn

Brianna Glenn is living the good life-- albeit not on the track and field dime. Brianna took to her blog to share with fans, her so-called fabulous life that includes running into some of biggest names in sports.

The long jump Olympic hopeful describes to fans that running professional track is like dating the guy that runs to the restroom when the check arrives and never returns to the table.

Says Brianna:

My expectations for the trip were grossly underestimated. As soon as I landed and headed to dinner I was updated on the itinerary. First an intimate dinner at Ruth Chris for about 60. Can I just mention that we all were served steak AND lobster?! You know I was in heaven. Then it was off to spend some time being a “celebrity” bartender with the other athletes sponsored by the company. This included Kasey Kahne, a NASCAR driver, some other guy who races cars and whose name escapes me at the moment, and Chuck Lidell, a guy they call ICEMAN, who is the star of the UFC. Scary lookin’ guy but a total sweetheart. I’ll admit that I didn’t know who anybody was but after hearing their credentials, I was more than impressed. I mean Kasey has his own jet so the guy can’t be too shabby! It was my impression that we would have one bar that was closed off for this special event but I was wrong. There were in fact 12 bars rented out for the entire evening for the convention that was taking place.”
