Want to know what the best feeling in the world is?
It’s setting a record and getting instant respect from the 50 other people who ran against you.
I still haven’t broken that 2:00 minute mark for the 800m but I ran in the 4x800m relay and as a team we have the fastest time in the state. I’ve ran a 2:00.47, a 2:00.67, a 2:00.73, and a 2:00.71 but I still haven’t been able to get under 2:00.
Oh well, I’ll do it next time. I promise.
Congratulations… I’m sure you will get it. The same thing happened to me… being a first-year swimmer in the top 16 as a freshmen and the top 8 this year. Too bad I’ll have to give that up next year…

Good luck next time, Matt! I’m sure you’ll do it, just give it your best.
