​Holy cows. It's been a while since we've actually raced, and you could definitely tell. My goal was about 9:40-9:50, and I thought I was doing pretty good. Each lap, the SC dude with the timer told us our splits, and I don't know what the foof was wrong with him. He told me 1:11, 1:13, 1:13, 1:14, 1:13, 1:12, and I didn't hear the last two. But yeah I finished with a solid 9:58.03 and barely qualified. The lap times he told me should've led to a 9:40 something and I felt as though I was pushing that hard, but apparently not haha. Feel sad for Mitch because he missed state qualifying by .4 seconds, while I got it by .4 seconds.. So that blows. PV invite is next, and instead of over analyzing the race beforehand, I think I'm just gonna go out there and try to run fast.


Also, it was a 3200m-not a 2 mile. The race thing is getting mad at me and saying that 1.988 miles is not a certified distance soo...   sorry.
