Well, so far this weekend hasn't quite been up to par, but it's not quite over yet.
Yesterday I ran the 200m in 24.13….a very disappointing .22 off of last Friday's time and my PB. But, you almost can't blame me for it having to wait nearly 5 hours before my race!
It was so long, drivephase left at about 10am and he was to run the 100m….which didn't start (for our division) until after 5pm….holy cow 😯
About the 100m – I was DQ'd. I false started 2x's (so they say). I actually only false-started once and the second time the kid next to me flinched, so I moved, but didn't jump and they DQ'd me. They said my foot came off the block, but as I'm sure Danny can vouge for, the blocks are miserably horrid and have NO grip, so my foot actually just slipped off of it. Oh well, I don't run the 100m anyways, but I was looking to win the race (and probably would have) with a PR.
Now, today, in a few hours, I get to run my 400m. I'm REALLY looking forward to it as a serious redemption race. Yesterday was a disappointment, so instead of leaving now (as the meet's just starting), I'll be leaving in about an hour so I don't have to sit as long. There are 76 heats of the 400m and I'm about heat 70 or so 🙁
So, wish me luck today and I'll have the results up as soon as I can.
