I remember being in High School on the track team. We had a meet at Rosamond High School, which is in the Mojave Desert and super hot. I was part of the shot/discus squad for the track team, so I wasn't exactly a sprinter. However, at the last event of the day our team needed one more participant for the 4x100 relay. I had never run in a relay before, but I was one of the few participants who was 1) not injured and 2) had available events I could still participate in. I was given the final leg of the relay. Our team pulled a huge early lead, and by the time my relay partner passed me the baton we were about 50 yards in front of the next team. I ran my ass off and didn't lose the lead, although I felt like I'd run full on into a wall. My coach bought me a good meal that night.
