Haven't posted all week! So all of our top guys ended up running and all of uvu's varsity came so more competitive than we thought it would be haha. I took 33rd out of 52 runners so I got about mid pack. 20:02 isn't bad especially at 6000ft elevation but it's definitely motivation to work harder. I took the first mile too easy, I just settled with some guys in the back and a little ways in I realized I could be going faster so picked it up and started passing people. I ran with Robby and Sean for most of the race, I thought the 2nd lap Was The last one so it was a little bit hard mentally when I found out we had another lap haha. My big mistake of the race was with about half or 3 quarters of a mile left I let the group with Mike sage Robby and Sean get a little bit away from me and uvus number 5 and 6 guys passed me with like 500 left. But with 200m to go some guy psyched me up just yelling for me to go and kick it so I just went as fast as I could and I sprinted back ahead of the uvu guys! Like that was the fastest kick I've ever done in cross country haha, should've gone harder that last section but overall a good race, it is still just practice after all, I'm learning college cross country. I would have take 8th at last year's race with my time so definitely not bad. It's been a good day! Also really big confidence booster to know I would already be scoring varsity for uvu who never replied my email about running for them in high school haha.

No practice today so I ran 10 miles with Jake, we made a new route and it felt pretty good. Averaged 6:53 so pretty easy run.

Good run with Jake, we started picking it up a few miles in, then we picked it up and ran 5:41 for a mile and then picked it up more and went 5:12 for the next mile. We ended that mile right next to my apartment so we stopped in to get a drink. That felt good really good.

Tennessee is really beautiful! Appalachian trail wasn't too fun. It's pretty but the trail was super uneven.

Did a 3 mile warm up and then 5 800ms with Brandon and Ian, my target was 2:30 because they were at 5k pace and my goal for track is under 15:25 which is 5:00 pace. I ended up running like 2:26 for them but it felt easy, my legs didn't feel anything until the last one which was great. It was a really fun workout!

Ran 2.5 watching the state championship. Watching Casey clinger race is pretty fun. 4A boys was also a really good one. I'm going to run some more later when I get to Cedar City.
