started of the day great watching PV in the 3200. I didnt qualify it haha. They guys did great. Carson ran a 928, 1 second off the school record and julien got on the podium as well. that 5a race was legendary, coolest race Ive seen in a while great job to all those guys. More epic stuff kept happening all day and state records and great races. Not gonna lie as the day went by I was getting nervous for my race. I was seeded 6th but ready to throw down. I was pumped.
State Championships- 3A 800m final
Warmed up to the bathrooms by the tennis courts.I did some strides outside of the stadium under the shade to stay cool it was pretty warm out. The first heat a guy ran a 158 (faster than my PR) but I wasnt to worried I knew I was going to pr. When we lined up the starter guy told our alley that he wants us all under 156 and I thought might as well Im not holding back today. I had the same start as my 1600, good behind the lead guys like I wanted no fighting for position. that first 200 was blazing though. lol I was expecting these guys to take it out a little slower the first lap considering caleb already won the 3200 that morning, nah dude we came through at 56/57 and I was barely trying to hold on to these guys. I didnt ease up for a moment that second lap I wanted to beat these guys. my spikes were literally burning my toes. I finished strong with everything I had. managed to get 5th with a 1:56.7. haha dude that race was so fun. I was after top 3 and I definitely gave it my best but you cant control how fast other guys run. CADEN the 3A 800 champ with a .1 lead over caleb who also ran a 153! (i bet their uncle lance gets them the hookups) (thats a joke and idk if they are related to lance armstrong haha). But for real those armstrong brothers are beasts big congrats to both of them. laid down and took a rest and then got super hyped again for the 4x400. I felt like shiz but still split a 52.9. macen and colin also split 52s and samson closed in like a 50. we took 8th and prd. next year will be so dope because we are all juniors. DH won 3A boys and girls titles, they are dang good.
I'll finish up the season by saying how I love track and running soo freaking much and I love jesus and heavenly father so much they truly helped me to have a good end of the season. when you are struggling you just have to not give up. Know who you are and be it, Know what you want and go out and get it. Could not have done it with out Holt and my bros and my family I love them alot. I cleaned up my mohawk and Ima keep it for a while I like it. peace
