One more meet

Chuck and I are on our way to pick up a newer pole vault pit (only about 20 years old)! Our old one is still serviceable, but the seam on one side is seriously separating. I’ll check out the new pit and be letting my old one go to a worthy recipient.

I’ve had a good summer, with my lowest vault at 10’6″ and my highest at 11’2″. Chuck has consistently vaulted 6’6″ to 6’7″. Dick Clintworth helped by yelling at me to rock back farther every vault. Sigh … This multi-year journey to being more vertical is frustrating. It is clearly an issue of the mind, not the body.
One more chance at the Olympic Peninsula Senior Games. I traditionally don’t do well there but I’ve got a chance to keep rocking back farther and get to the pole, so I’ll push once more. It doesn’t help that I have a Pickleball tournament the day before.
