Track Meet #4

First off - I am feeling much better. Thursday of last week was a much better day and by Friday I was eating all normal foods. Maybe tomorrow I can start having milk again!!

I competed in my Track meet and we came in second overall for the league championships. The boys team came in second too BY just ONE POINT!! I felt so bad for them because they all preformed so well and they were soo close!

I did high jump (I ran into the bar and now have a huge bruise on my back - opps!), long jump (PR-ed at 4.67m, overall 7th place), shot put (9.82m, 4th place overall), and then 4x400m relay.

By the time I got to the relay I was exhausted but I really didn't realize this until I received the baton from Abby and was running. Results:

4:12.13 (my split = 65 seconds)

I was the slowest split which really upset me after the race. We need a time of 4:10.48 to make it to this big meet in Boston at the beginning of March (and we have 4 more chances to qualify). Abby is already going with the 4x200m relay so there is no guarantee that we will be going but i wanted to at least help the girls have the possibility/opportunity. (A lot of things are still up in the air)

The girls ran such a great race I was so proud to be on the relay with them. I think that if I hadn't had to do the other three events I would have run faster - My legs were just tired from basically going non-stop from 10:30am until 2:55pm when we ran the relay. I was basically warming up for the relay while I was throwing shot! It was hard to focus.

Anyway - it was a jammed packed weekend and now I am just trying to recover and get all my work done! Happy Monday!

when/where is the boston meet?! my bro will prob be there and if i'm in town i will prob go to cheer!!! he has his post-conference meets at BU, MIT, and BU again. you have 4 more chances to qualify, there's definitely time!!!!! that's awesome you did so many events,... high jump is SO SCARY to me-- i did it in 7th grade, and i remember so vividly the very first jump, i just could not make my body go backwards so what i ended up doing at the last minute was jumping forward FEET FIRST over the bar!!!! it was prolly a sheer stress reaction cuz there's no way i could jump up that high under normal circumstances. i must've been psychic too cuz i went on to break \my arm in the state championship (but still placed third even tho i went to the hospital w/o finishing, hahaha,...)... yeah 7th grade was the end of my high jump career ;) i actually never did track again til senior year of HS getting in shape for college ball. sorry for the long story!!!! :) SO GLAD you are feeling better. milk! hahaha. i can't live without it,...

Great job in the meet-- seriously, w/ all those events I am surprised at how well you do! It sounds to me like guys can DEFINITELY get that 4:10 time if you have 4 more chances to qualify. Glad you're feeling better!
