Short-Term Running Goals:

-Be really fit by early September and make the team even though I’m getting married in August. 

-Not burn out early in the season 

-Be On the team that wins nationals 

Long-Term Running Goals:

I want to continue running as long as possible. I don't feel a need to run marathons; I would rather simply be able to run 5Ks and 10Ks for much of my adult life and at least get in a few miles until I'm pretty old.

Total Distance

Currently feel like a smoker after running in the field house. That is not good for your lungs. Anyway, today's race was really good. My plan was to go out in 70s with my teammates and then go from there. One of the smartest things I think I've done was to about 20 minutes prior to race time go run a 70 second 400 on the outdoor track. That helped get my legs going and remind me what it feels like to run that pace. Everyone went out way fast, I was in the back. Eventually I caught Josh and we ran together for like a lap before I passed him. The rest of the race was a blur. I was passing people the whole way. Eventually Michael Ottesen and Brandon Garnica outkicked me but at least I still broke 8:40. Third place was only two seconds in front of me. Idk if I'll make the team off this but it's a good confidence booster as I prep to maybe run the mile in January. We'll see. My strength is definitely my strength right now. Another good lesson I learned was a mental one. I was thinking about how I ran so well at the Freedom Run this year and I went into it not even planning to race it. I figured I shouldn't stress out beforehand so I tried to not worry and prayed for help. That worked well and after I had been getting kind of antsy earlier, I felt fine around race time.
