ABU DHABI (UAE): 400 m world champion Sanya Richards said for Runners World that : Yes, we’ve been honeymooning, but we must be the only couple that’s worked out every day on our honeymoon. Both Aaron and I have trained every day that we’ve been here. The first couple of days, we got to run on the beach. We had a beautiful hotel in Abu Dhabi. We lifted weights in the weight room. We went to the desert for the next few days, and we didn’t run there, but I did get to run on the treadmill and I did my lifts and my core and all that stuff so I’ve still been training every day. Coach Hart just told me not to lose anything over this 10-day period, but I had been training hard prior to it, so as soon as I get back outit will be at a very high level.” She plans opening race at Texas Relays in Austin in 4x400 m and maybe 4x100 m.
