This was my best race in Spain. I put much less effort into this race and ran a faster time than the semi race. Too bad this was a prelim. I won by 10m+ and was relaxed and looking around the last 80m. Still ran a 57.00 which ended up being the fastest 400m by an M55 American at this meet. I feel I could have run much faster in this race. The track at Carranque I liked better than the others.
Interesting how I can run faster with less effort, then the next day I kill myself to run a half second slower. Live and learn. Just happy to have had the experience. Spain was great.
