I'm not sure if you could tell from yesterday's caption, but I was trying very hard to play it cool. In reality, not only am I extremely uncool but it turns out that the result of the race meant so much to me that I made this face when I crossed the finish line 😝
I'm very grateful to get the win and the IAAF World Championship standard! Thank you to @usatf for putting on another great meet and also to the state of California for existing.
