I had my step exam Tuesday night. I practiced and practiced and practiced and I was totally ready when I got there. My techniques were good, but left me exhausted before running my form. Fortunately, everyone had to run their forms first, so I had time to wipe the sweat from my face and catch my breath. I ran that form harder than I've ever run it. I made small fatigue related errors, my targeting was not perfect, my timing was ever so slightly off in a couple of places. Mr. Kimball pulled me aside and said "I couldn't have run that form any better myself" I felt amazing. Mr. Kimball does not give out praise lightly.
I passed with flying colors. I'm totally proud of myself!
