I got up, my dad did the paper route, and I went to get ready for the race. I ate a small piece of toast, and about a half cup of orange juice, and then we left. We got there about 8:15, which is only 45 minutes before they started the 3200. They had some girls heats, then some guys heats, and then my heat started at 9:40. I just got some new spikes, which probably helped me a ton, that made me feel amazing. I ran with Jerrell for it, and we stayed pretty consistent the whole time. The first mile was a 4:45, and the 2400m mark was right on to have a 9:30. I passed Jerrel with 800m to go, then he passed me with 400m to go and I never caught him. I kept trying to because I really wanted the school record, which is 9:29 flat I think, so I pushed it all the way. Jerrell ran a 9:26 or 27, but still killed it. Later I ran the mile, and I just wasn't mentally ready. It had a brutal start, with two people getting tripped, and one of those(Chuk) got mutalated. i started in the outside lane to stay away from it all. I ran way too fast in the first 600m, but I got passed and I tried to relax and that spelled doom. I got a PR thanks to the spikes, but didn't have my best race. Ran something like a 4:34, but I really think I could've done better. I placed 8th, Elijah Armstrong took first, Jerrell took 3rd, and Tyler took 4th. Tyler missed qualifying times by about a second.
