As the indoor track season comes to a close, we want to take a moment to recap the outstanding indoor performances before the outdoor season gets underway.
My experience at the 2008 Olympic Trials was amazing. It was the best race of my life and I felt like I was experiencing an out of body runner high through the entire 3000m steeplechase race. I finished 2nd to qualify for the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing and ran a PR, beating my previous time by 9 seconds. Such an amazing experience, to accomplish that goal I’d been fighting for for over 2 years when I first ran the Olympic A standard. That was 6 years ago and a lot has happened since then. I feel like I’ve grown up a lot and know more about myself and trust myself more than I ever have.
