Old habits

April 29, 2012 - Pam Rodgers
Last Friday, I worked the shot put at the GMG Junior High track meet. It was great to be back around the event I spent much of my life learning how to do. While we were waiting for two throwers to return from another event, I asked one thrower if I could throw her shot put just for fun. I did a stand throw but I could still throw it over 35 feet, which was great since I haven’t thrown for two years!

It was fun to know that I hadn’t lost my edge. My senior year of college I threw 13.05 meters (about 43 feet), which was my personal best. I didn’t realize how much I missed throwing it until Friday.

I thank the Janesville thrower for allowing me to use her shot put. I was so glad to know I still got it. :)
