Good news! My reasoning behind not doing 400s until later was because I had been fairly sure that I wouldn’t be able to compete at USAs even if I qualified because it typically falls on our conference weekend.
But this year they are a weekend apart so I’ll be able to compete, which means I’ll definitely be opening up the 400 earlier. I just got the email today about the conference schedule, so that’s pretty damn good news!
Now I just need to qualify again, lol.
