First race of the year. I'll wanted to start it off a lot faster than last year, but I had a few mistakes. The mile took forever to start, but after warming up I felt great, and saw there was a good field, so I was definately excited for this race.
Mile-4:36(?) 4th place. I saw Ricky Faur, and I knew he would be the leader for this race. He's ran a 4:13 I think in the mile last year as a sophmore. Anyway, we started and I got boxed in really bad, but I saw Jerrel on my right side and he was weaving inbetween tons of people. I just followed him. After that the race seemed to go well. I slowly passed people and was in 2nd with 2 laps to go. This is where I made my mistake. There wasn't 2 laps to go, there was only one. I got passed by Jerrel and Jadyn Asay, but thought I would pass them on the last lap, and just keep them in distance for right now. Well, they were sprinting, there was only 150m left when they passed me. I then got in the last straightaway, and another guy passed me. This was when I realized my mistake. I quickly passed him with my 40m sprint finish (I usually have atleast a 200m one.)
2 mile-9:52 2nd place. My legs were a bit sore, but I felt alright. I led the race for the first 14 and a half laps, just running, then Jerrel passed me, and I just stuck on him trying to pass him. He ended up beating me by .23 seconds, but I alright with it. My splits were not where I wanted them to be. I really slowed down the last mile, more than usual.
PM- 4 miles with my dad at easy pace. Hopefully these mile will put me in a better spot at state.
