Russell is paradise!

I am very sorry I have not posted anything in over two weeks. However, it would have done no good whatsoever. Most of my thoughts were exceedingly negative, and it would have been toxic for me to put those thoughts into writing, although I made some serious mistakes by broadcasting those over social media.

In past years, I would be at Cessna Stadium on the Wichita State campus, covering the second day of the Kansas State High School Activities Association state track and field meet.

I’m not there this year. And like John Waite once sang, I ain’t missing you.

As stressful as my life has been this month, not having to cover state track and field has kept my stress level from totally breaking me and driving me over the edge.

I was happier than a pig in slop when I found out yesterday the afternoon session had to be postponed due to heavy rain and lightning.

Because of the weather, today’s events began at 7 a.m., one hour earlier than usual, and a ton of field events had to be moved from Friday to Saturday.

Preliminary heats in everything except the high hurdles in Classes 1A, 2A and 3A were called off. Now, those events are two heats of finals against time.

Most field events are now four attempts with no finals. Usually, it’s three attempts for all 16 competitors, then the top nine move into the finals with three more attempts each.

The only regret I have not being in Wichita is not seeing Caitlyn Cox compete. She’s going in the 4×100 relay and 200-meter dash. As for the rest? No. I’m good. At least as good as I can be.

The only other piece of good news is my psoriasis is close to clearing up. Thank you, Dr. Custer.

I’m considering a drive to Salina to go to Buffalo Wild Wings. I’ve been stuck in Russell and Hays all week due to the severe weather. The weather is supposed to be fine today, so maybe it’s time to get out.
