Or maybe I should say ... Re-live the Chaos!
We are all happy having improved our time from 2 weeks ago, but as the nature of this sport goes, we want to be even faster. Hard to be satisfied in this sport when you know you can do more to be better and faster.
Natalie started off blazing fast to ensure she got a good place and didn't get boxed in. We knew we would be right in the mix with these other teams, but I certainly wasn't expecting as tight a pack as there was, or as much movement. It was definitely exciting. Then Natalie had a smooth pass to Rachel who kept us in there, who then handed off our blue baton to me.
We have a couple more weeks until OUAs (Ontario University Athletics championships), our next opportunity to improve on our time again.
Here's the race - enjoy!
Before OUAs though, I'll be running in the 60m and the 300m at U of T's Hal Brown, last chance meet, on Feb 14th (ideal Valentines date location, no?!) I was planning to run the 60m at the beginning of January, but a slip on some ice put me out for a couple weeks.
Looking forward to having the opportunity to run the 60m this week tho; its a fun race, and I've been feeling fast in my short speed workouts. This meet will be my only one on my "new home turf" so I think some of my T.O friends will get to finally see me race, and I have some family coming into town for the long weekend.
Here's a pic of our 4x4 team after the race. We are looking far too recovered after a time like that (clearly need to run faster next time!)
From L to R, shortest to tallest:
Maggie Hanlon, Fiona Callender, Rachel Jewett, Natalie Geiger
Hope you all had a great weekend, and to those of you in BC - Enjoy your long weekend! We've got a week until the Family Day weekend in Ontario.
Here's one last final pic of the Armory... As you can see, we shut the Armory down last night! Such a beautiful facility.
