Since I last blogged, a lot has happened. I had my track meet on Tuesday which was pretty successful. I did all distance events, 800, 1 mile, 2 mile in 2:27, 5:19, and 11:45. It was so windy and cold that I actually felt my legs tighten up because I was under warmed up. Considering that, and the fact that I was completely alone, my times were decent. Coach Reaser wasn’t there but she was so impressed! She actually bought me a sick watch as a gift(it was $100 and is touchscreen!) As you can imagine, I’ve been pretty sore from racing that much on a track, in spikes, so it’s been nice to have some easy slow runs.
Then on Thursday, my mom and I headed down to Philadelphia to visit UPenn and watch the relays later that day that my sister raced in. The campus was beautiful. What I didn’t like about it was that the students seemed to match the arrogant stereotype of the Ivy Leagues. Maybe I’m just used to hippy Brown but that was a major turn off. My sister didn’t race well either but it was such a big meet, for me anyway, it was fun to watch some of the best athletes in the US.
