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.
