TIART: A Year In Review

Thank goodness it is Thursday! I walked to class this morning with a little smile on my face thinking to myself "only one more day and then I am FREE!!"

Since it's Thursday it is time again for TIART, one of the last of 2008! This weeks theme is A year in review in 52 words or less!

I ended my 4 year career of college Basketball and jumped head first into training for Track and Field.

I ran my first Half Marathon with my best friend and competed in my first college indoor track meet.

I hope that 2009 holds just as many “firsts” and memories as 2008 did.


Quick recap and update on Track:

Yesterday I practiced hurdles and like always my hamstrings started to hurt. My quads hurt from Monday and Tuesdays practice so today I am just a cripple! Today's practice is going to consist of Time Trials! The races will be 55, 55 hurdles, 300m and 600m. I am running the 55H just for fun and then the 300m to try and improve my time from the last trial (50 seconds or something like that). Tomorrow Ill post a quick report!

I'm excited to see what's next for you in 2009, too...hope your legs feel better. So tough to do time trials on tired/sore legs!

Just found your blog. Good for you for accomplishing so much in 08 and good luck in 09. Last fall I finished my senior year of college year, and it was the weirdest thing ever. What do I do now? I didn't start track, I'm not that fast, but I have become a pretty avid runner.

ps- read your post on the underwear. I bought these from patagonia--and they are a dream come true! AMAZING! http://www.patagonia.com/web/us/product/product_focus.jsp?OPTION=PRODUCT_FOCUS_DISPLAY_HANDLER&catcode=MAIN_FA_US.CLOTHING_GEAR.WOMENS.BODY&style_color=32405-999&ws=
