Todays race was very needed because of the tough week ive been having. The start the race wasnt that fast which felt really good and I was able to pack hard with the other pv dudes. Towards the first down hill I was falling off logan but I wasn't letting anyone pass me because when people pass me I ussally die. I was able to catch logan coming into mile two and I gave him like a pat on the back and told him to stay with me but he wasn't able to but thats ok because there will always be next time.
Everytime I've been passed by a teamate they don't help out at all and just pass so that is what I have started to do when I pass a teamate is to encourage them to stay with me and help me push when it gets even harder. Thatcher and I had a battle the whole last mile when I would pass him then he would pass me the next 100 meters and that really help me push harder. I really took to heart one thing coach says about dhells is when you see one of their guys you better catch him and pass him and I saw myself really starting to push.
Really solid race today and I can't wait to see what more I can do because I'm hungry for a faster time! Watch out
