a 400m

3-in-1 illusion gif !

illusion 1 : you may think there are some round particles in motion, but all of them are static, just growing up and down one at a time (mexican wave effect)

illusion 2 : you may think the first worm runs faster than the second one, and that they’re both accelerating, but they keep the same constant speed and distance in time and space all along (400m race bend effect)

illusion 3 : you may think there’s a third illusion but there’s not


The 2017 NYC Marathon.

I don’t know where to start with this one.

I trained my ASS off for 4 months. I think I missed a total of 4 runs the entire time.

Marathon Day:

We were up at 4:40 am to get out on the bus to Staten island from Manhattan. I dozed off on the bus and the next thing I knew we were walking to the athletes village in fort Wordsworth. There were police, army, tanks, guns EVERYWHERE. I felt safe. We grabbed coffee, bagels, Dunkin Donuts hats and found ourselves a place to lay down until 11 am when our wave started.

The time passed quick and the nerves came on REAL STRONG.

Then we were running.

I trained for a time goal so I had a pace bracelet on to help me. I followed it religiously in the beginning. I had my garmin set up to only show current lap distance and pace. As each mile passed I refocused on the new pace. ( I had it set up to adjust pace for elevation etc)

I felt really good in the beginning, The nerves were gone.

Somewhere around mile 10 my mind just went crazy. The gps on my watch wasn’t reading accurately so my pace was showing wrong, I assumed due to the buildings and it THREW ME OFF. I struggled mentally the last 16 miles.

I FOUGHT. I went in and out of a bad place for a long time. I just ran. I didn’t know how fast I was just going. I walked through a few water stations the last 10 miles or so but that’s all the walking I did.

I will note: Hansons prepared the hell out of my body. I felt amazing physically. My body was GOING but my mind was just having a BAD DAY! I cant blame hanson’s for that because it started pretty damn early in the race.

As I was crossing over the last bridge from the Bronx back into Manhattan a coach from team in training ran with me for a bit. She was great, I wasn’t able to tell her how much I appreciated it but I sure felt it!

ALSO- spectators, let me tell you how important they are! You guys are rock stars. You come stand on a street for hours to see your loved one run by for maybe 3 seconds and then you move and do it all over again. Seeing my parents and my best friends parents multiple times on the course was SUCH a boost!

The crowds in NYC are INSANE. People kept telling me but you don’t realize the magnitude until you are out there experiencing it!

As I was approaching the last few miles I checked in with my watch, I knew if I just kept running I would PR.

I went into the race with 3 goals.

A goal was 4:30
B goal was until 4:40
C goal was anything under 4:47 ( my current PR before NYC)

I knew A goal was gone,B goal was pretty much gone but if I kept running I was going to PR. So I pushed.

when people tell you to “Dig Deep” ITS HARD but that’s exactly what I did. I PUSHED.

And then the next thing I knew I was approaching the 800 m left, then 400m left then 200m and then I saw the finish line. I’ve been watching the marathon on TV for years and I’ve seen the finish line a million times but running up to it was amazing. Knowing I secured a 4 minute PR was fantastic!!! I thought I would be more disappointed that I missed my A goal by 13 minutes but I wasn’t. I knew i left it all out there. I don’t think I could have done any better on that day. Who can be mad when they PR by 4 minutes!!

Huge shout out to all my friends for texting me and snapping me with the most amazing words of encouragement. It meant EVERYTHING! Some of them will be reading this on here… I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!!!

I feel like this post is all over the place. Words are not my thing, but there it is.

I’m still riding the high 2 days later and plan to ride it out as long as I can.

Thanks to everyone for being SO supportive and following me on this LONG journey!!!

I started a cult based on turtles at school all because of a substitute.

Yes. You read that right. A cult based on turtles.

It all started with a substitute P.E. teacher. We were doing track testing and practicing running the 400m. We were divided into 3 groups: the Fast, the Medium, and the Slow. You could see where I’m going with this. I was in the slow group and the sub told us something to the extent of “Now is the turtles’ turn.”
Then it clicked. While I was running, I went up to a random person and went “Hello fellow turtle.” When I finished, I had come up with the idea of having a Turtle Cult.
Surprisingly, I got a few of my friends on board. Everyone calls me Mama Turtle.
The cult still runs strongly today.
And there’s a lot of members.

Today I realized that the method I used for studying all my life was completely wrong and because of this, I failed Aerodynamics and Compressible flow. What I did was review the concepts in the lecture notes, and then after knowing I had a grasp of them, redo the problems in my lecture notes, text book examples, and HW problems. It sounded like a decent plan, right?

Except one thing: engineering and upper-level math exams rely on students solving problems they likely never seen before. They rely on testing the “on-the-fly” problem solving skills of students. That’s why professors make tests completely different from HW and lectures.

What I was doing was reviewing what I already knew. In other words, I wasn’t actually learning anything new or teaching myself how to tackle new problems: all I was doing was pointlessly redoing all the problems.

All that did was give me a false sense of confidence without actually learning anything new. In other words, this method only made me overconfident.

A different method would be something like this (under read more)
