Started off the meet with a solid 4x1600 with Dallen Julien and Mitch. I think we all ran around 4:40 something. I got 4:40 barely. The wind was freaking killer.

The main event of the day, however, was the 3200. The plan was to get as many people qualified as possible. This includes Xander, Mikey, Logan, and Alex. And maybe Nathan, but not sure if he's ready yet so I think his goal was to just stick with us as long as possible. Anyways. Mitch and I were in the back and Julien and Dallen were in the front. Everyone else was supposed to be in between us. We all managed to run the first mile mostly togehter, and we only ran like a 4:58. Then, everything changed when the fire nation attacked. Dallen and Julien got tired and Xander took the lead. Logan started to fall back so I surged up to help Mikey. He started throwing up so I surged up to help reconnect Alex. It was at this moment that I realised we'd muffed up. Alex wasn't looking to hot so I sprinted up to Xander, who was a whopping 20 meters in front of me. Julien and Dallen were dead and definitely looked that way too. I caught Xander with like 600m to go, and he was in second place of the race at this point. I was dead af tired but I knew I had to push for him to get it. We cross the finish line at 8:49. Only a 1:09, I'm thinking. So I give it everything I have and am yelling at Xander and we are pushing our guts out and we get to the back stretch and I'm yelling at him telling him he has to beat me and everyone is going wild and he zooms past me and we finish and it blowed. He got 9:59. Less than 1 second away from state qualifying. So I mean it's whatever. Xander ran an excellent race and I guarentee that he will qualify, but it just kinda sucked because we had 4 guys who we were confident we would state qualify, and none of them got it. Xander was pretty down on himself, but I told him to just take all of the positives out of it, and we would definitely get it soon.
