Day One from Indoor Track Nationals

Today, a seven-hour trip ended up taking eight to eight and half hours to complete because of some unknown traffic delay.  The upside was that coach Wilson brought four neo vault videos for us to watch on the trip down, so we turned a bad situation into a film session.

We arrived at the hotel around 5 p.m., got our rooms and went to dinner at 5:30.  Ordinarily this would be an uneventful event, but not at the D2 nationals festival. We left the hotel to a police escort, the streets are blocked off and the interstate is backed up for a quarter of a mile in either direction. I thought that it was pretty ridiculous and cool at the same time, but who am I to judge. 

Dinner was at the Barber Vintage Motor Sports Museum.  That place is awesome! I have never seen so many classic cars in my life as the picture below will illustrate. The food was good as well.

At about 7:30 p.m., the ceremony concluded with a fireworks show and we came back to the hotel.  But I’m about to go swim in the pool and continue rehab. I’ll get back to you tomorrow night with how tomorrow’s practice vault goes and if any other fiascos occur.
 

Have a good one,
