well things have been pretty busy around here with school & track now in full swing! I wish I would have documented more of my "track journey" because it is kind of funny to look back on now but I am going to just give you the run down now. :) So backing up to last year about this time, we were having fun going to all of Braydons track meets and watching him vault. I couldn't help but notice (and either could braydon and my dad) the women's 400, which was the event I ran in high school. My dad would say, "You really should try out!" and I would say..."Ha, I wish." Lets be real I had been graduated from high school for Forever (4 years) and even if I really wanted to I really doubted I could get back into shape and run even faster than I had before. Anyways later that summer after the track season had ended Braydon mentioned a few times that he really thought I should just TRY to get back in sprinting shape and just SEE how fast I could run and if it was decent I should try out. Ill be honest the idea did get me a little excited but I hated it at the same time. I knew if I tried out, and I possible did make the team that I would be the worst one. & that didn't sound fun. But my curiosity got the best of me and I figured, Hey if i do make it I can always quit... but that would just be cool to say I made the team:). So we went to the track in the mornings before work in the 95' weather and ran. I felt so uncoordinated at first and SLOW! My muscles were just not as quick to respond as I remembered in high school. Braydon taught me some drills and techniques to get me back to where I needed to be and I did them every day for about 2 months. It was fun to be on the track again and I could feel it getting easier...
