Florida Relays Recap

Ran 13.26 (0.9w) down in Gainesville this past weekend, which improves on my current World Lead and Seasons Best. I won this cool plaque (see pic) which was given to the winner of the 110m hurdles at the Relays, given in honor of legendary University of Florida coach Percy Beard. I thought I ran a good race, but my coach Brooks Johnson though otherwise. He said after I got clear of the field I went in to relax mode and didn't run worth two pinches of s**t. After the meet organizers had us wait around until the very last section, I kind of lost my adrenaline rush, but other than that, I felt great, didn't hit any hurdles and most importantly came out without an injury, which is more than I can say for my fellow training partner Jacoby Dubose, who now is going to have to rehab his hamstring before he races again. I also saw fellow hurdler/arch rival Joel Brown at the meet, but didn't get a chance to rub in that Ohio State loss to Florida in the Final Four Championship, but we will meet again!
