Yes, she had even been to my house) the favorite to win the 100 meter hurdle, clipped a hurdle after the early lead to finish 7th. She said she hits a hurdle twice a year Some pretty dramatic pics on line. It was her only event. How would you like to have that reasting on your shoulders for the next 4 years. I don't know if anyone had seen the local interviews with her. She made a choice out of college; track or pursue a career with her degree. Pretty obvious what she chose. The outcome really sucks.
I knew what happened but that certainly didnt make it any easier to watch that race unfold the way it did. That was a tough one. Now on to more important issues, do you still have her phone number and is there anyway you could orchestrate some sort of a double date?
