Track meet this Saturday




Time for me to lace up the spikes and compete. It's been exactly one year that I ran the 100 meters at the UCSD Triton invitation in La Jolla. It is always a fun and HUGE meet with lots of colleges from all around the country. The only downside to the meet is that UCSD is a super slow track. No one runs fast times there.....and that includes me. I hope to beat my pedestrian time of 11.7 that I got last year. My PR is 10.72 so I still have a long way to go to best that. Not sure if I can get back to that time but I would like to get to low 11's or at least a 10.9 in the 100. I'm 35 later this year so I know that father time is crawling on my back. Funny how when you are in your 20's you think aging will never get to you and that it will never affect you...but it does...to everyone! Funny thing I feel so much stronger and mobile at 34 than I ever did at 24. Just gotta keep that speed going...use it or lose it...right?
