In January, I started indoor track and had the BEST season of my life!!! I heighted at every meet and got a new PR (personal record) in pole vault 10 feet!! I had a really fun time and enjoyed all the support I got from my husband and others.
This is also my last semester in college. Brad and I will both walk on April 29th at Utah Valley University! We are so excited! Brad graduated in accounting and I am graduating in Exercise Science. We don't know where life will bring us, but we have faith that it will workout even with the trials we face.
Speaking of trials....I had a pole vault accident on this last Tuesday. I have torn my ACL in my left leg this time. It was my right leg the first time. This injury is a little worse because I also bruised my meniscus and PCL along with a small fracture in my femur bone. I will be getting surgery in May most likely but for now I am on crutches for two weeks to try to heal the fracture and get the swelling under control. After that, they are going to make a customized brace for my leg and see if I can give pole vaulting one more try for my senior year. However, I will be smart about the whole situation and if it hurts then I am out. I thank God for giving me the opportunities I have already had and for protecting me. He is always there for me and I know that nothing happens by chance...Sometimes the journey is rough but "Come what may and love it". This will help me grow even more. I do not regret any of my choices regarding track. Track is more than just a sport to me. It has helped me dig deep, work hard, be dedicated, and reach goals. I wouldn't trade my experiences for anything! I feel these qualities will only help me improve as a wife, mother, daughter, and friend. I have also had so much FUN! Thanks for all the love and support everyone!!
