My thoughts on my new school record

After three long years I have finally
improved on my personal best and it
took throwing a school record to do it!
 
Although it was only an 8 inch improvement,
 Coach and I had to make some changes
in some of my bad habits. The good news
 is that it's not perfect, yet.

The real improvement has been in my glide.
 I threw more than 7 feet farther with the
glide than from a stand. Early in my high
school adventures, I often threw less from
 sliding across the ring than from a stand!

I am working hard on rebuilding my
 strength and with the better technique
I believe I will have a few surprises left!

As for the meet, it was virtually an
All-California meet with Jill Camarena,
 Jessica Cosby and me throwing again
just like high school. Jill threw spectacularly
 and seems to have made wonderful
 improvements this year working out
at BYU.

knowing how to hide your sources

“The Berger”

There are some nicknames that I have heard
throwers get over the years.  I don’t have one myself, but I found out
yesterday that my dad had one when he was a thrower at UCLA.  We ran
into John Smith of HSI (world record holder at UCLA in the 400 meters) and
when he saw my dad—he was like, “The Berger!”  I was like—what did John
Smith call my dad?  Then my dad explained that was one of his nicknames at
UCLA. 
I thought that was pretty cool!
