So my high school track career came to an abrupt end because of half a second. After four years of dedication to the sport it is all over. It’s such a surreal feeling. I wish I could do that last race over again, just one wrong step could have changed the whole outcome. So many things keep running around in my head. What if I didn’t taken those few seconds to check my watch? What if I started my kick just a few feet earlier? What if I had leaned in more to my finish? I wish it didnt end like this, I know thati didn’t train as hard as I have in the past;but, my freshman self deserved better than this. I always had dreams of competing at the state level as a freshman and I can’t help but feel like I let myself down, if my freshman self saw me now she would be so disappointed.
