What I learned at my first indoor track meet:

– The surface is hard. Brutally hard. My achilles doesn’t like me very much right now.
– Running indoors makes your mouth dry. After just 90 seconds I felt like I couldn’t breathe.
– There are a lot of turns on a 200m track.
– It hurts.
– My 9 year old is a rock star. I knew our times would be close. I knew he might beat me. And I’m so flipping proud I really don’t mind.
