I did it!

I did it. I made it through the track meet in one piece, and not only that, I also made it through with some really good and funny news.
Drum roll please.....
I came in 1st place!!!!!! It felt so awsome! I love that feeling that hits you a few minutes after you ran. The feeling is like no other and all you can do is sit there and smile and say, "I did it!".
Now I have some funny news to tell you. As we were running the last 100 on the mile, a girl in last place happened to "pitch her cookies" (as Mimi, Grand Sheila, would say). After she let it all out in another girls lane she kicked it into gear and passed about 3 paople to accept 6th place. Now that is a run!
What makes me laugh is that I had been talking to Boo, My fellow miler lauren Heinrich, before we ran about how it would certainly be something to have someone "pitch their cookies" in the mile race. We just didn't think it would actually happen.

I have a track meet today. This is my second one. I compete in 3 events: the triple jump, the 800 (2 laps), and the mile (4 laps). I always get really nervous and worried that I won't do very good, or that it will hurt really bad to run those 4 laps. But then I have to remember that God didn't put us on this world to be the fastest runners in the world. The main thing to focus on in life is Him, so that is what I am going to do. Plus I have already made myself happy coming in third on both of my events the last track meet. I finnished the 800 in 2:57 and I finnished the mile in 6:48. That is 22 seconds better than I have ever done in my life! I have already made a great run, so wether i beat that time or not I will be happy.
No worries! Have fun!... And RUN.

Wow! It has been so long since I have blogged! It has been so long that I actually forgot my password to even start blogging. I was even kind of embarrased to start blogging again. What matters is that I am here now, and I hope that I will be able to do a much better job. :-)
