Trafford AC Grand Prix

On the 25/8/15 I went to the Trafford Athletic Stadium with scorpions. I decided to compete in the 800 meters.

Just after the 3000 meters had finished everyone was called over for the 800 meters to be given their lanes and heats they had read every ones names out except mine so they just placed me into lane 1 heat 10.

The 1st heat started at 7:15pm, after watching a few heats I was nervous if I would come last by some way.

My event come up at 7:53pm I got to the start lane and thought to myself just run my race and then we were off, I was very happy with my pace faster then I’d expected just after my first lap I was struggling with my pace but kept going and at 600 meters I gave it one last push and as I was going down the finishing straight I got a standing ovation from the crowd I finished in 3:42 mins also I got a 600 meter PB by 21secs.

Now can’t wait to smash my mile PB.
