Journal entry: 
Our first track meet was on the 23rd of February. It was definitely cold, so I didn't expect to set amazing times in any of my races. Also, the meet was really small;only two small teams were there, and they didn't even bring all their athletes. I was scheduled to run the 4x100 meter relay, 100 meter, 200 meter, and the 4x400 meter relay. I started my day with some cereal and fruit, so it gave me some energy to run; however, it didn't last because I was hungry again after 2 hours. So, I ate some of the snacks that were provided for the overall track team. When the meet started, the 1600 mile race was first, so that gave me plenty time to warm up for the 4x100 meter relay. As a team, we timed at 51 seconds in 47 degree weather, which was pretty impressive considering that we didn't really have any competition. In the 100 and the 200, I came in first. My 100 time was OK, considering I haven't ran a full 100 meter sprint since last May during state. My 200 time was terrible because I didn't sprint the whole way; I hate the 200. I promise you, it's the worse race. I couldn't finish out the meet doing the 4x4 because my mom had to leave. I hated that because I actually like the 4x4. It gets me in shape, and I love the rush of the race. Overall, I performed pretty good at my first meet of my senior year. I know I have some things to work on which is always a great way to come out of a meet.
