So long, Wichita

My extended stay in Wichita is in its final hour. As soon as I get cleaned up, I will load up the luggage cart and then my car, and I will be on my way back to Russell.

The state track meet ran well for me until the very end. I had a problem with some people during the 4×400 relay, and I was very angry to the point where I left early, before the boys races were run and before Smith Center received its state championship trophy. Nerves were frayed, sure, from the long weekend, but one person in particular pissed me off by stepping into something he had no business stepping into.

I’m glad the state meet only comes once a year. I need 360 days to recover.

Now that the writing is done from the state meet, it’s pretty much relaxed until late August, when practice for fall sports begins.

Over and out from Wichita. Next stop, home.
