Anyways my PBs are 55.46 in the 400 and 2:18 in the 800.
Also fun fact, my high school team (Gladstone) currently holds the record in the state of Michigan for most consecutive Division 1 championships with 6.
Man the 400 is freaking torture... hardest event, that or the 800 in my opinion. I ran the 45m/55m and the 45/55 hurdles for a short stint, but then I stuck to dash. A couple months back I signed up for the Freshman/Sophomore Meet @ Reggie Lewis in Boston under the 45m, but my coach put me running anchor for the 4x400. To add to it, he put our qualifying time down as 3:26
So in theory we would all have to run 54s. I ran a 71 in practice, and just chilled until the meet. I ended up running a 64, but we had to run last after waiting 4 hours...
But yeah that's my track story. I started indoor track this year to get some basketball speed, and that also explains why I run the 45m pretty good (5.6) but a terrible 100m time (13s). Strictly (very) short distance.
