Well it has been a long 4 days of track and field. It’s so awesome to get out there and put it all on the track.
The heptathlon was fun until I got to long jump lol. It’s so mentally hard to make yourself go again and brush off an event that didn’t go to well. I even think I might have shed a tear or two hahha. It’s all apart of being a multi! You have to be able to be ok being consistently average at 7 events and before you know it you are at a PB score for the day!
I thank god that I have some awesome ppl around me!! I love that at the end of the day you have; Kev and Barnett who will tell you not to be upset because your 7 average events are getting better and the big score is there, Bryan who is just happy in general that you finished, John who makes you get in your only fair throw in jav so you don’t no mark, the best friends and apu teammates that wipe your tears away and tell you to keep your faith, Dom who everyday leading up to the hep talked trash to you during warmup, and Jake who stays around in the sun all day to coach/ help you get a pr in your weakest and mentally tough event.
When it’s all said and done, god has placed so many great people around me and I’m more than blessed each day I get a chance to hang out with them and compete for ME for HIM.
S/O to the Mt. Sac competitors: Bean and Vic for their solid runs this weekend ! 🙂 Jake for his upcoming vault season after the elite session Saturday, and Ced for his B trials qualifier in hurdles!
Till next time,
Well the past couple of meets have been going well. Practice has been good and the work is put in! Tomorrow is the start of the my first hep of the year.
I’m not sure what to think because I’m not really nervous lol. God has done some amazing things this year and I’m excited to put it to work. It’s funny how I think that this time last year I was wearing two hamstring sleeves trying to figure out what god could have possibly had In store for me because it was not what I wanted.
Now I get a chance to do a multi where I can honestly say I know what I’m doing lol not just praying that I hopefully throw far or jump far or run fast. I can just DO… Because when I “try” instead of just doing I put a small bit of fear that I can not achieve it in the back of my mind. I will no longer try anything…
I’m simply going to DO it for me, for him!
It’s going to be an awesome weekend on the oval… My favs Vic and Bethany are chasing their Olympic trials qualifiers! Top heps and decs in the multi, Bryan Clay invite and book signing , Mt. Sac elite vault and open races!!!!
Got the multi girls Bre, Meg’s and Em getting after it tomorrow at 10 am ! AndCasey for his last go around as a cougar! Let’s get it !
After a long bus drive we are finally up north at Stanford ! Just got to the room and ready to ice for a bit. I really do love being up here! Excited for tomorrow comp 100h and long jump setting off at 11:30. After a great talk, or what moat people call venting session with an absolutely great person he kind of convinced me that I need to really trust in myself… Kind of think he is right ;). Getting after it tomorrow and Saturday no excuses! Got the Apu team here in full effect and good ol domination Haitian hahaha getting it in 110hh. Let’s goooooo switch turns on now!
