By Lee Journey—Kansas — Have you every felt like it was going to take an eternity for something to get here? That’s how I felt waiting for track season to start.
It’s my first year doing sports and I was really looking forward to track season. Although, there are lots of events the one I was looking forward to the most was pole vault.
At first, I thought pole vault was going to be scary being flung threw the air. Still when my track coaches asked me if I wanted to pole vault, I said yes not knowing how much work it would take.
For about the first week, I could barely get two feet off the ground. Even though it was hard, I kept working. Our coach told us if we want to pole vault at the first track meet we need to be able to clear opening height. Even though I was close, I still had some work to do.
Although, my coach thought I could do it, and entered me in.
