Subject: RE: Tell a story about how you dropped the hammer on a bunch of fools when they counted you out
It was my senior year of high school in the very first meet of the season. I was pretty stoked because I was getting to run against a local kid that had done real well in the biggest classification that past xc season.
Dude was a robot hitting 75's like clockwork, it was unreal. 75....2:30....etc....anyways, coach yells "one move, don't look back"...so eagerly I wait until I DROPPED THE HAMMER at the 250 mark. Not sure I've ever ran a quicker 200 hahaha.
If I remember right I ran 9:48...because I think I ran the last lap in 63...Not sure, my math sucks but regardless I had never bitch kicked anyone before. I was probably a 55-56 quarter guy AT BEST.
I ended up running the same kid down in a giant invite later on in the year. I think I ran 9:28 to his 9:29. He looked over just like "wtf".
To be fair the kid was younger than I and went on to be a much better high school and college runner than I ever was. But that one time I DROPPED THE HAMMER was the easiest and most fun race ever. Home track, at night, lights on...priceless I tell ya.
Ran into him on the trails during a college break once and we had a pretty good laugh about both races.
