im a distance runner again!! Trail run!! Mustang pass!! 50 minutes!! Very low in numbers so we hopped in cars and headed to a trail (by my house(;  ) I was nervous beforehand that I wouldn't be able to keep up for very long but I felt super good & did the whole run & the striders. It felt so nice to be running again.

Welp. This was it, my last high school race. It was our 4x100 & I'm happy with it. We took 7th & it was a nice effort from everyone. Don't know my split.

Not quite sure how I'm feeling right now. I went into this season with the goal of having fun. I chose to not put expectations on myself, expectations definitely formed, but it was in a much more positive way than before. I learned to laugh mostly everything off whereas last year I would've cried and I learned to be pleased with myself for trying my hardest, even if the time/place/jump wasn't where I wanted. I know I've grown more as a person this season than I did the three previous seasons combined, and for that I'm really proud and happy. 

At the beginning of the season, I wasn't sure if I was going to run track. I hadn't enjoyed running in so long, it was a chore. I am forever grateful that I did participate this year. I am so #blessed to be able to say that I have no regrets regarding track and also that I achieved my goal of having fun.

Obviously I would've loved to be running at state next weekend, but I can't say I'm disappointed in the season. I learned a new hobby, made lots more friends, & found joy in running, working hard, & going to practice. Because of this season, I'll remember track & field as a happy experience & something I'll miss. I'm actually tearing up writing this, senior year is a bittersweet time.

Special shoutout to all the friends I've made on & off my own team and especially the blog family for being my #1s, to my parents for supporting me and loving me through everything, & especially to Roberts for believing in me, caring about me, & talking to me about whether I was happy or not. I am 100%, absolutely, & without a doubt  blessed with the best.

Pretty much nothing. All we had today was starts(long jump for me) & handoffs but we got lightninged into the school so we had to do handoffs in the hall, hope they're good for Thursday. & I just did pop-ups through the halls. Chill day but ew @ the rain

6x200, I'll never understand why it's so important to do a cool down/recovery jog between reps in distance running but not in sprinter workouts. Anyway, janz said at the beginning if we stop hitting our times we have to quit & after rep #3 I had hit 3 sec slower but when she told me that I really focused on making them quick and getting my form & I was hitting much better times. Good workout for sure.

We had the senior scholarship banquet tonight & me and dallen were awarded the National Scholar/Athlete Award from the army reserve!!! Yay me & dallen!!
