Great Start!

I kicked off the indoor season with three personal records. Last Wednesday at West Johnston High School, I competed in my first meet of the season. I ran in the 55 meter hurdles, 300 meter dash, and the 4x400 meter relay. It was a great meet. I posted a 7.5 in the hurdles, which was better than my time of 8.1 of last year. In the 300 meter dash, I smashed my previous best of 37.75 with a time 35.8. I qualified for the state meet in the hurdles, and missed it in the 300 by .5 seconds. My 300 meter race was promising yet disappointing at the same time because I had great race but still missed the qualification mark. The very next day we had a meet at Wakefield High School. There I competed in the 500 meter dash. I was not to thrilled to run the 500, but the competitive nature in me took over and i just ran it. I forgot to check in, so they made me start on the out side. At the shot of the gun I didn't take out at all. During the race I wanted to quit so bad because I was beginning to feel the the effects of my lunch. I was in the back of the pack getting boxed in, but once I got to the 200 mark it was over. I sucked it up and hoped in lane 3 and kicked all to the finish line. I sucked up everyone in the race to win the 500. I ran the 500 in a time of 1:08.4, a new personal record and yet again falling short of the qualification standards by .4 seconds. I'm feeling real good about this season!
