So I spent the past two days in New York City, and I spent today at a track meet.
It was a big invitational with limited entries, so we could only take about two dozen kids. It’s a bummer for the ones who didn’t make it, of course, but it’s a good meet for the ones who did. Getting the experience with tough competition now will benefit them- physically and mentally- during the post-season. That’s doubly true for rookies, and almost all of my sprinters are rookies.
They all ran PRs or close (hundreths, I mean), but our best performances on the day came from our girls’ captain in the 3200m and our boys’ captain in the discus; they shattered their previous PRs. The whole team is happy for them.
It was a great day for a meet, too: sunny and 65 for most of the day. Can’t complain about that!
On Monday everyone will be back from vacation, and the rest of the season will fly by!
