State has finally came!! I have been looking forward to this day since the beginning of summer but never knew the amount of nerves that it would come with. I gotta figure out this being nervous thing and get better at dealing with them. But I think I'm just blaming my poor performance on the nerves.
First mile went way solid and I finally put myself in a pack with Logan and made sure to stay with him and when I would fall off I would push back. He signaled for me to come join him, that really helped a lot! I started to fall off when we started on the pond. I really pushed hard but couldn't click into the gear I needed to find. Another bad race for the books but I'm looking back on the race to find the postives even if there isn't that much.
- Learning more and more how to race in face races.
- Reached my goal to run at state!!
- Had a solid 7 seconds at the beginning of the race.
