I really Just Wish I was Brian Deal

So from Florida I had to make my way back up the east coast to get to the Glory Days Invitational in Virginia.  On my way up I decide to visit Watuaga High School in Boone North Carolina.  Lets keep track here, I just visited Brian Deals old high school, lived with his family and now I am visiting a high school just down the road (although a very mountainous road) from Appalachian State, where Brian went to college.  Needless to say this is starting to get a little creepy.  Needless to say it is easy to see why someone would want to go to school up in Boone.  The entire place was out of a Monet gallery, it was insane.  When I stopped at Watuga it was cold (very very cold compared to Florida) and raining, but I was still taken aback at how this high school was just nestled up in the mountains with the trees changing colors and the fog setting in.  My pictures don't do it justice.  Oh yeah, the team was cool too.  Ha, but seriously, these kids were awesome.  I rolled up and had no idea where to park my truck but once I got situated the kids came and helped me move stuff up to the school where we set up shop overlooking the track.  Th kids were doing an up tempo 400m workout based on a variation of a workout the Queens college coach has his training group do.  The kids run 400m reps with every 3 or 4 400's being all out.  It was a lot of fun to watch and seemed like a baller workout all around.  After (and a little bit before) the workout the kids hung out and talked to me about their goals and their training.  We had to bring my stuff up to them to show off because I didn't want them standing out in the cold rain before their workout, but once we got all set up it was great.  The team was great to talk to and we had an awesome time.

Next stop Virginia.
