The steeplechase is not for sissies.
For those of you who don’t know, the 3000 meter steeplechase is 1,8 miles — 7.5 times around the track, jumping 4 hurdles and one water barrier each lap. Definitely not for sissies. Here’s Lanie going over the water barrier:
Last place here after her fall,laughing at herself, and she went on to win the heat! She ran those 3000 meters with 35 barriers to jump over about the same time it takes me to run 1600 meters, no barriers.I can’t wait to watch her race at the championships next week. My daughter ROCKS!
