|Subject: ||RE: Tell a story about how you dropped the hammer on a bunch of fools when they counted you out|
that's because my story has yet to be heard.
my junior year of college. i'm an 800 m runner, 1:52's at the time, i'm doing 100m sprints in practice with the sprinters, hurdlers, and decathaletes. this one particular decathalete whom i am beating says, 'i don't understand how you can beat me in an 800 and a 100 when i'm a better 400m runner.' well that sort of bothers me so i'm like, 'a better 400m runner? how do you figure.' and he says, 'i just am. everyone knows it.' well i'm pretty pissed so i say, 'everyone knows it huh? well let's figure this out now. you and me race a 400 now.' everyone else on the team are now getting into it and they all think this will make for a great show and all so he can't back out. i know he doesn't want to do it though. a 400 for a decathalete is a different thing than a 400 is for an 800m runner. but he's locked in so whatever. we go to the starting line and he asks about lane selection. i tell him he can have inside. i figure that's what he wants and i have a plan. i can tell he's being timid and he does not want to do this. so my plan is to make like usain bolt at the start. i'm going to sprint as hard as i could on the outside lane and gap him early and take any hope away. so a team mate starts us and i procede to DROP THE HAMMER. i take off like i'm first leg of a 4x100. i never hear him at all during the race. i finish and everyone on the team is cheering and such and laughing at the decathalete who i find out stopped running at 300m.
