Rainy Spring

I’ve been assisting with coaching the local high school vaulters this year on more of a full time basis. I really like the coaching technique of Coach Moore, but I guess he trusts me enough to spend more time on my own. I have been very impressed with the improvement of all the athletes this year. It looks like we’ll be sending four men to sub-district and possibly four women. Wow! That’s by far the most in the four (?) years I’ve been coaching. All four of the men who qualified for subdistrict have vaulted at least 10’6″. There is talk of a dynasty.
We’ve definitely had a bit of rain this year. Today’s practice had a sprinkle all the day and several meets have had rain. I wouldn’t mind a few warm days. I think global warming in Sequim results in rainy spring and early summer.
I’m itching to get on my runway soon. Track season is beginning to wind down and that leads to my own training season. I need to up my running. We ran Bloomsday last week and I was not happy with my fitness level. It seems so much harder to get motivated to run in the rain now. We used to when we were younger.
