And it's not what you are thinking!
Disney hosted a meet yesterday, one that we were initially not suppose to run in. We entered in the meet late in the week, originally just to run the preliminary round. You know me though, if they have two races, you better believe I will run both times!
Anyway, here's were my personal best comes in to play: I spent over seven hours at a track meet. Never before had I spent close to that amount of time at a meet. Even in college, the meets would last for only four or five hours.
I got to the track around 7:30am, the prelim heat was at 9:15am. In the prelim, I ran 13.39. Joel won his heat in 13.61. Both of our times were wind-aided, you would have been hard pressed to find a legal wind out there.
So we just chilled in the weightroom until I final went off at 2:00pm. I ate a protein bar and just chilled and chopped it up with Kenta, Aub, Randy and Moushami.
The finals went off, I won in 13.36, with Joel second in 13.47. That race was aided by a 4 meter per second wind. I nearly lost it over nine and ten, I am definitely not in possession of the type of quickness needed for a race that severely wind aided. I needed June/July quickness, I don't have that grooved in yet.
The main objectives of the race were met: Another chance to get over ten, put on a show for the home fans and come away injury free.
I probably took a hundred pictures and signed twice as many autographs. This meet had a lot of high school teams and they were really excited to see us professionals compete. They had a good time, so I'm happy for them to see us in action as well.
Today will be a lazy Sunday, just post up around the house and hit the grill for some steaks and burgers and watch the Tournament. Surprisingly, I'm sitting in 4th place in our bracket challenge.
Here's the video from our preliminary and final race, enjoy.
