Saturday was my first outdoor meet for UML…ever! Luckily, we had absolutely gorgeous weather. I have to remember to be thankful for a beautiful day because most likely they all won’t be like that.
We traveled to Hartford, CT–Trinity College. I finished in first, or so the official told me, with 9′ 11.75″. Not bad, not bad. The meet was nonscoring and just a nice way to get the season started. The meet was very mellow and easygoing. I’m pretty happy with my performance.
I’ve started practicing here @ UML. It’s really disappointing the condition our mats are in. They haven’t been taken in for a really long time. The cover is absolutely distroyed–ripped and torn; doesn’t even cover the mats anymore. [I'm sure those who went to Baystate Games last year have seen them]. Hoping to get over to Westborough ASAP.
My foot is doing much better. It’s amazing how restng & relaxing [in Florida!] will make everything feel great. I know that my injuries acting up are usually stress-related. I’m actually participating in study through the UML Physical Therapy department–they are studying the relationship between stress and injuries in athletes. I’m very curious to see what they find with me. My head coach told me that they could create a case study on me alone. Thanks, Gary.
I applied to be a Resident Advisor next year. Over spring break I got a call from the Resident Director of the building I live in. After thinking I was in trouble for something, he offered me a RA position. I thought it was for next year, until he explained to me that my current RA had resigned and he wanted me to start ASAP. I’m now a 4th floor RA of Donahue Hall–I moved out of my old room exactly one door down. I live with 2 basketball girls in my suite and get my own room. I’m enjoying my new job a lot
