    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana track and field team is competing at the 2006 Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Sacramento, Calif., June 7-10. The Hoosiers will take time out of their incredibly busy schedule to talk to IUHOOSIERS.com. Larra Overton, who will compete in the 1,500m, talked about her journey to California.

    Today was a travel day for Coach Wilson and I. We flew out of Indy and had a short layover in Chicago, then a long three-hour flight into Oakland, followed by a 90 minute drive to Sacramento. We arrived at the hotel around 5 pm and went for a short run to shake out the stiffness from sitting on the plane. The rest of the team came out earlier, so it was my first chance to see everyone since they left on Monday. It had only been a day, but I really missed everyone, so catching up with them was fun. Kelly (Siefker), Jess (Gall), Coach, Sandy (Tecklenburg) and I went to Macaroni Grill for a wonderful dinner. As we were leaving dinner, it wasn't even 8 pm California time, but I was ready to head to bed after a long travel day. So I crawled into bed around 9 pm and managed to keep my eyes open for about half an episode of 'Friends' before I dozed off. The meet starts tomorrow, so a good night of sleep is just what I needed.
