Texas State Invitational 4/7/12
I have no real words to describe how excited I was after this meet but before we get to that let’s start at the beginning. I arrived at the track about 3 1/2 hours before the meet started to do my shakeout after the ride to San Marcos. After I finished that I was feeling good and ready to run. I was feeling good, excited and relaxed it’s been a minute since I had been so ready to run. First race of the day was the 100m: I had a good start and there was just enough in my legs to pull away in the last phase of the race. There were two lines marked on the track the first line was the thought finished line but I turns out it was the second one. So with me slowing down about 15 meters before the finish I ran a 10.83, about .10 off my personal best. I knew then that it was going to be an awesome day I was upset for not running through the line but I told myself get it out your mind and focus on the next race the 200m. 1 1/2 hours after the 100m I had the 200m up and it was time to roll I was shooting for a mid or low 21 mark for my second race of the season. I took it out a little slow on the curb and the stagger broke even with me but those 300’s in practice came in handy because I was strong and able to finish a lot better than I could two weeks ago. Finished first in my heat legs were good and I couldn’t wait to ask my mom how I looked. When I saw her she gave me the thumbs up and I asked her the time, when she said 21 I was happy but the number after the . was what got me excited about everything. It was a 21.3 a new PR and a whole second faster than my opener and .8 away from the ‘A’ standard for the Trials this year. I’m ready to work and get down to business to see what I can do in three weeks when I return for my next meet.
