US Paralympic Nationals Recap

I'm back from hot hot hot southern FL from an amazing weekend of competition. The summary of results is as follows:

  • 800m: 4th place
  • 200m: 1st place and PR and American Record
  • 100m: 2nd place and PR
  • 400m: 1st place
  • 4x400m Relay Team A: 1st place and American Record

For complete results, please see this link.

I couldn't be happier with my performances. It was challenging competition conditions with the heat not to mention the thunderstorms and rain. To read more about the days events, US Paralympics had some recap blurbs that can be found below.

My Thoughts

As I mentioned, I couldn't be happier. I was concerned going into the competition that I wasn't rested enough and that I was feeling burnt out, and my coach kept telling me to trust him and that it would all come together. Luckily, he can now tell me, "told you so"! It's exciting for any athlete to be able to see the hard days of training pay off, and to literally witness inching closer to personal goals. The USA Team for World Championships will not be announced until September, so stay tuned for that. Thanks to everybody for their support through this incredible journey!
