US Nationals: Pre-Race

We arrived in FL on Wednesday, had some adventures getting from the airport to the hotel, but eventually we all made it. We sweet talked the receptionist to let us into our hotel room even though our whole party had not arrived yet. I logged online, co-taught the last class session for the term. And then I shifted gears to get ready for the races.

En Route to PHX

En Route to Phoenix

Never a dull moment in the life of Anjali! I am sitting here on the plane, somehow functioning after the past 2 days of very little sleep and two-a-day practices. Remember that paper? I am happy to say that just 3 minutes before boarding the plane I emailed it off to one of my co-workers who graciously agreed to help me out and print it to deliver the hardcopy to my professor. Cars are known for going 0 to 60mph in say 3.9 seconds, this girl went from 0 to 24 pages in less than 24 hours!!

Baltimore

Baltimore

I wish I could tell you that Baltimore has also been an incredible event, but it has not been. The school visits themselves have been wonderful. The kids are always so very excited to meet me, as am I. I’m continually impressed by the questions that I get and I can really tell which kids are thinking things through and applying what I talk about to their own lives. It is a rewarding experience getting to meet these kids.

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!
