"By halftime the temperature was 49 degrees and I was miserable. I couldn’t feel my face, hands, legs or feet. I thought my cute Hello Kitty socks could handle the cold but I was wrong."

Being a Southwest Indian I had no idea what to do when the cold front recently came through Oklahoma. My eyes nearly popped out of my head when I saw that the high temperatures were going to be in the 50’s.

To put things into perspective, I start dusting off my jackets and breaking out the sweats once the temperatures hit between 60-65 degrees.

Kylie Johnson will take her middle-distance running to the next level at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond

All Kylie Johnson needed was a little shove.

When she was an underclassmen she didn’t mind competing in track and field events, but after a little push from her mom a running star was born.

“As a sophomore she started out the season sprinting and her mom forced her to run the 400 at Newkirk, and she finally got mad at her (mom), stomped off and ran the 400 and won,” Kylie’s father Casey Johnson said. “So she figured out she was a middle-distance runner.”

And a good one at that.
