2-week update

I've been on the road a lot lately, so got a bit behind on updating. Here is a recap of my adventures in the past 2 weeks. More to come soon!

MidAmerica Games

Character Building

Character Building.

This is a term of endearment that our coach uses in various forms when we have a particularly difficult training session, race day or the like. It is used to embrace the challenging conditions, perhaps wind, rain, or all of those other things that are out of an athlete’s control. Because, that which does not kill you makes you stronger, or builds character.

Mt SAC Relays

The first track meet of the season was a success!! I raced fast, had fun and soaked up some CA sun! The videos of the 800m and the 1500m are posted under "News". I had some technical difficulties and so I could not actually embed them as "Videos" but they are there!

A Week in the Life of Anjali

I struggled to decide what to name this post. “A week in the life of Anjali” or “How to Get Your Head in the Game When…” Those were the two I was debating. For those of you who want the abbreviated version of my week, read the bullets below. For those who want to know the backstory behind any of the following, feel free to read on.

Spirit in Motion

Think of it as a game of "Where's Waldo" and see if you can find Anjali!


  • American Record Holder, 200m
  • 4th Place, Gasparilla 15K in Tampa, FL
  • Champion, Boilermaker 15K in Utica, NY

Gasparilla 15K

The Gasparilla 15K is growing into quite the event! It is always fun to be at the first race of the season and to see both familiar and new faces. I had a great race, improved my time from last year which is always exciting. I ran a 41:40 and finished 4th!! The rest of my team did very well too: Amanda finished 2nd, Jessie finished 5th, Maggie 7th. On the guys side, Josh finished 5th and Tony was 7th. Way to go Illini! For complete results, click here.

February 2010: Olympic Thoughts & Start of the Season

Watching the 2010 Vancouver Games has been so incredibly exciting, and at the same time incredibly difficult to watch. Every day I am glued to the television, in class, (yep, I admit it…and for my professors and classmates reading this, what can I say, I’m just being honest), I am glued to the Official Vancouver Website and various live feeds to get up-to-the-second information---isn’t technology wonderful?
