Summer Track – Make up night

After last week's Summer Track Meet washout, the make up night was this past Thursday night. As one might have expected, the turnout was lighter than expected. But on the bright-side, the only water hitting the track came from the sweat produced by the runners. Which I guess; is a good thing.

The low turnout didn't deter an enthusiastic group of runners. The highlight of the evening was Matt's 4:28 mile. Watching someone who is really good at what they do is awesome experience. Matt and another guy, who I cannot remember his name, run together for the first 3 laps, but I could tell Matt had more in the tank going into the final lap. Sure enough, going down the back stretch he kicked it into another gear.

Quick heats of the 400, 800, 4 x 100, and 200 followed. The last heat of the evening was the 3200 meter run which Chase won just under 11 minutes.

During one of the breaks in the action, Tim and I were chatting about the fact that next week is the last week of Summer Track. Our first meet went off the day after Memorial Day, and 4 more weeks of Summer Track were to follow. Now, with one week left time seems to have flown by. Mentally, I know that there are 24 hours in the day, and 7 days in the week. Sometime life is so busy, we don't realize how fast those minutes turn into hours and how quickly those hours turn into days and weeks.

I am reminded that our lives are short, and not a minute of it should be wasted. Live the most out of every day.
