Outdoor season is finally here :)
Last time I raced outdoors was Regionals in texas May 2011, coach wanted me to get a couple races a before I go to Sweden and compete this month. I forgot how the 100mh race is a total different race than 60mh...all I have to say is I WAS SO TIRED!!! I had my first race a couple weeks ago at UCLA, and I died the last 3 hurdles haha but it was so fun and on top of that it was my fastest opener ever (14.04).
My next meet was the Robison invitational, I planned to run the hurdles and the 200m (I know some people are probably shocked, but apparently its good for me). Ever since I've been in Utah, this meet gets one day of sunshine and one day of pouring rain. Unfortunately, this meet was NO different. Friday, I took first and ran a season best in the hurdles (13.88) still so much to improve and I ran a personal best in the 200m (24.25) took second :) It was almost a second pr!! I know it is still early in the season, considering I will hopefully be competing until the end of august. So I have lots of time to practice and hopefully improve on my hurdle time and achieve my goals for this season.
