Your skills were more than adequate, bud.
The best advice I've seen given here is keeping your knees and your back bent. Staying low/keeping your body ready to spring, etc., gives you a little extra pop in your step. I also find getting my arms into it helps (swinging them side to side, pumping them back and forth, etc.) helps a bit.
