2019 National Senior Games, Albuquerque 100 meters
16.60 17/26 in F55
I was in the first heat again, but the call up was much more organized than yesterday. In fact, they kept us waiting a few minutes so we would start at the scheduled time.
I was the only one not using starting blocks in my heat. I tried them when I first started sprinting, but I never felt comfortable with them.
I had a good start, then the usual mindless running, then I felt my legs getting rubbery near the end. I remember thinking oh oh, you're getting tired, so keep on pushing.
I was happy with my time of 16.60, but shoot, I was only 0.05 seconds off of my PR! Perhaps if I hadn't thought about getting tired, I would have made it. Oh well, I have two more chances this summer to get under 16.56.
The other women in my age class are phenomenal. The top result was under 14 seconds! Mary Taylor from KC just made the final, so I think I will go tomorrow to cheer her on.
