Wisconsin State Track

Whew!  Am I ever glad that is over! I'm sure you're wondering what it is that I am so exhausted and excited for the end of, huh?  WI STATE TRACK!  
Anyone out there a former track runner?

I love our new stadium and track

As much as I love working this event, it is so incredibly exhausting!  

Runners getting in their lanes

My job here at State Track, for the past four years, is to be in charge of the small concession stand.  I basically run back and forth on a gator bringing them food, drinks, cookies, etc. as needed.  I know, I know, this doesn't sound all the tiring or difficult.  However, if you are the only person hauling all of this stuff, it is!  

State records are being broken on this track!

Today, I lifted and loaded over fifty 24 packs of soda/water/Gatorade (and plenty of other foods) within 3 hours! Not to mention the 96 degree heat (again) today!  Needless to say, my arms and body were wiped out!  

The Crowd

So I did what any reasonable person would do and I came home plopped on the couch, turned on the AC, turned on the tv, and drank myself a brewski :)

Just for the record, I usually drink Miller :)
Yikes! This pic makes my calves look enormous!
After getting my feet up for a few hours and watching a couple movies... I think I'm ready to go again!  My willingness to get up and get going again is aided by my old GA buddies that are back in town tonight :)  Off to have a rockin' good night!  Hope you have one yourself!

P.S  Can you believe that some little high school girl ran the mile in 4:51 (new state record)!!!  I can barely run half a mile at my normal pace that quickly!  I think maybe sometime this week I might try to run a mile as fast as I can and see how I compare.... It might get ugly!  Anyone have a PR anything comparable to that?


  1. How fun! I didn't run track in HS, but ran cross country and have such fond memories of it! Also, a 4:51...frekin' awesome!

  2. @Katie I know, isn't that INCREDIBLE! Enjoy reminiscing your old CC memories :)
