I ended the track and competition season with Brit’s Pub Vault – one of the sweetest venues I’ve seen. Arriving there, I knew that even if the day didn’t go well, it’d still be a cool experience. I was right. Brit’s Pub is located in downtown Minneapolis. It’s a couple stories tall. They have a rooftop patio and lawn, upon which was a raised runway and pit. It was beautiful! It was their fourth year, my first.
The weather was perfect. All of the Master’s (meaning those over 30) vaulted together at 9:30am – 12 men and 2 women. I haven’t vaulted much in August, after all, track has been done and we are three weeks into the volleyball season already! I made 10-6 for the day, and while I hoped for 11 feet, I don’t have any real complaints. I felt great in warm-ups and over 10-6, and it was just nice to be jumping again. It was also sad to officially close out the season.
Thanks to those that came out for the event to cheer me on: Andy, my mom, a cousin and her fiancé, and Katie (who just finished her triathlon season at Nationals where she qualified for World’s!). While I didn’t make big heights, at least I ended the season as the Women’s Master’s Champion at Brit’s Pub Vault!
