But this was the first meet that seat was empty.
It was the hardest 100 meters I had ever ran in my life and I just broke down into tears cause when I crossed that finish line - I looked up for my dad and he wasnt there.
Today at the track all those emotions came back. It was rough. Its been nearly two years since I've competed competitively and I dont have my daddy there with his stopwatch, believing in me more than I believe in myself. So now I do. I have the stopwatch and I have an amazing support group of family and close friends and I'm so blessed! Today was just a tough day and its not like I havent had one before nor will this be my last
