Dinky Dual Meet

Yesterday it was beautiful outside until the track meet started at 3pm! Then the rain clouds slowly started to crawl across the sky and settle themselves above the track.

I was able to high jump (which I also won but also I was the only girl!) and improved from last week but not by much. I just wasn't able to put everything together. I will practice tomorrow and have one more chance to get everything right!

I then ran hurdles which was going great until I came to the 7th (of 10) hurdles! I managed to hit that hurdle which slowed my momentum down greatly. If I can manage to not hit the hurdle I am confident I can run faster!

After finishing the hurdles, the rain really started. It was like the flood gates has opened! I still ran the relay but it was tough with rain and wind blind siding me after 200m!

Overall it was good and now with my new high jump score I have 3394 points! I have been checking weather.com everyday now and it says for Sunday and Monday the temps will be in high 70s!!

Happy Wednesday! I am jealous of all your bloggers out there that have been doing nice outside runs!
