Hello everyone, so last Friday was my last state meet, and boy was it quite the experience. This blog is pretty much going to be a big thanks to everyone so bear with me.  First off, thank you to UNF for hosting the state meet, I always enjoy running there. Words cannot even begin to describe the emotions during our State meet. From the first race to the last there was just so much adrenaline and excitement from the Lady Marauders. Every single one of us did something beyond what we thought to help out the team. In the end we were able to pull out a team title and we are so grateful for our coaches and all the support we’ve gotten.

In Her Own Words: Stefanie Kurgatt Stefanie Kurgatt Apr 24, 2013

Hello Everyone. State is this week, I can’t believe it. I will not get all sappy with my blog just yet, because we still have one more meet left. Sorry parents, after state the emotions will come spilling out. Until then only excitement and adrenaline is in me. Last week Maclay competed in the Regional meet at Bishop Snyder and that went really well. Along with grabbing two team titles, ten girls and nine boys qualified for state.

Hello Flrunners. I’d like to start this blog a little different this time. As we all know, this past Monday the Boston Marathon took place. A very tragic event occurred on what seemed to be a good day. It is hard to believe that something like this could happen and cannot imagine how horrible it must have felt to be there. My heart and prayers go out to all the families and competitors and everyone at Boston.

In Her Own Words: Stefanie Kurgatt Stefanie Kurgatt Apr 11, 2013

Hello everyone. It is officially post season and many of us are preparing to do our last three meets ever for our respective high schools. What an overwhelming thought that can be. I know it has finally kicked in now that these are my last meets for Maclay.

In Her Own Words: Stefanie Kurgatt Todd Grasley Apr 4, 2013

Hello, hope everyone is having a good week thus far. It is officially post season for most 1A schools as we just finished our last meet before the championship season. Districts are just around the corner, but until then we will be training hard as ever.

In Her Own Words: Stefanie Kurgatt Stefanie Kurgatt Mar 27, 2013

Hello everyone. I hope everyone is having a great start to their week. I had to come back to reality as Spring Break has ended for me and I am back to school. Things are really starting to sink in as we only have a little over eight weeks of school left. I am nearing my last few high school track meets and every day goes by so quickly. Last week was FSU Relays and it was bitter sweet after racing that meet for five years in a row.

In Her Own Words: Stefanie Kurgatt Stefanie Kurgatt Mar 19, 2013

Hey there Flrunners! Hope everyone is having a fantastic week. It definitely is a good one for many of us here in Tallahassee. This week is out spring break and many of us are living it up at the beach and what not. It is so crazy how after spring break it is almost April and then school is practically over. For all the seniors, enjoy your last few months and live it to the fullest. You are about to open up a new chapter in your life. Enjoy and cherish every moment that you can because we are all growing up very quickly.

In Her Own Words: Stefanie Kurgatt Stefanie Kurgatt Mar 13, 2013

Habari! Hope Everyone is having an awesome week thus far. The days are certainly going by super fast, and I can’t believe that we are two weeks into March. As for that time change,  I can’t quite tell if I like that or not. After just stressing how important sleep is, losing an hour isn’t always great, but gaining some extra daylight at the end of the day isn’t so bad. So, I guess there is only one solution to this problem, everyone go to sleep an hour earlier. 

In Her Own Words: Stefanie Kurgatt Todd Grasley Mar 6, 2013

Hello everybody! Well, outdoor track in Florida is well underway and most of us will be approaching our second or third meet this weekend. It’s crazy to think that this is my last high school season, but I am going to enjoy every bit of it and definitely blessed to get this far. After Seattle it was time to get back to reality and back to the usual schedule. I realized how much I love sleep and this might sound sad, but every runner should know how I feel. When I have any sort of free time the first thing I want to do is sleep. Sleep is glorious and definitely a key component when it comes to being able to compete at your fullest potential and I love it. Anyway, if I could give any advice to anyone for this season is sleep more.
