I really want to see where I'm at with this first meet. For a change I'm actually pretty healthy.

I still feel like there's always room for improvement. But we're like a million times better than we were at the beginning of the season.

It's team-wide how we improved.

In the first set I went out and played my game. The second set I let her play my game. In the third set she lost some momentum because I got to do what I do best.

I'll be a little nervous, because I didn't get to train much over break. But once I get on the starting blocks, I'll forget about that stuff and just go.

It was very tough, it really showed how much we've been trying to get in shape because we had to run around a lot.
