you know you're obsessed with vault when....

...when your friends start talking acout their track heroes and go on and on about Pre, your hit them right back with a couple hours of Hartwig, Bubka, and Mack. they just kind of stare at you randomly till you explain AGAIN that they're only like the best of the best of the best event in all of sports.

...you have practice on good friday so you can watch vault videos and improve on your form. and you dont even care.

...you get pissed when you dont have practice because you want to improve so badly. while the rest of the team couldnt be more excited to have a day off.

...you compare all guys as vaulters for their potential as future boyfriends.

...you keep stoping while youre doing your homework so you can do more workouts to keep improving your vault, and by the time you're done with your homework it's three hours after when you could have been done.

...you spend half an hour after practice trying to see how high you can fling a shoe off a pole.

...you try to ignore lightning as long as you can so you can keep vaulting. rain doesnt even phase u.

...your coach told you to pack up 20 mins ago but everyone wants ONE more.... haha!

...YOU LAUGH AT YOUR COACH'S POST ON THIS STRING BECAUSE YOU'VE WITNESSED ALL OF THEM PERSONALLY!!!

....When your on a ride in a car when you randomly look out the window and realize that the lane on the shoulder of the road, or bike lanes, make you think of a really long runway that goes on forever!

You're on here on Easter...

When you're using your Spring Break to vault...

When you see people, you randomly think "Hmmm...they'd make a good vaulter.." ;)

You own about a bajillion pairs of spandex...but no jean shorts...

You're pretty sure you could max out a credit card at Nike Town/Sports Authority/etc..

When people say "Ugh, we HAVE to go to practice today?" You're baffled because you hate when you have to miss!

Your parents ask you to put your math homework down and get some sleep, but you are actually performing pole vault calculations.
Bad days are for rain. Rainy days are whatever you make of them.

Or when your sitting in class staring at the ceiling, when you randomly ask your teacher what height the ceilings are, and when he/she replies, you tell them whether or not you can pole vault that high!
