You dominated the 400m at the state meet winning by over 1.5 seconds, what was your race plan?
After winning the 400 at states was very exciting as this was the event I was mostly looking forward to. I really made sure to rest and stretch going into that race as I knew it was going to be a really tough race. My coach and I had been working on how I should be running the 400 all season and doing so I was able to break my personal records over and over. During my race at states coming around the second turn I really felt good and that it was going to be a great second lap.
