My first big college meet

Now that I am 30 years old and 5 years out of school, I am finally in good enough shape to run with these guys (video link). This is the Willamette Invitational meet in Salem, OR on 4/4/08.
That's me in white out in lane 7 at the start.
The plan was to just stay behind the leaders for the first lap and then see what I can do on the second. I ended up running a 1:58 which is not bad on a rainy and windy day. I finished 6th in my heat and 7th overall (about 40 runners total).

Stay tuned because on April 26th, I am racing at NNU in Nampa and it should be a very good race.

Nice job Rhet! I am glad you are the one running those 800s and not me(Lacey). I like the shorter races. Good luck at NNU!
