1030am- Nike Southwest Regional- Championship Boys Race
we were very prepared for the race. I cant think of anything our coaches could have done better this season to get us ready. we warmed up on a seperate part of the golf course. headed to the start. did a couple striders and such.
The race started good. Despite the huge pack, before mile one me and cars got running together, we were already disconnecting from the lead pack even though we were like 4:57 at the mile mark. Through the next mile me and Carson ran good together, probably shouldve passed more people. At mile 2 it was like 10:16 so we had slowed a good amount. I fell off of carson and had a really bad last mile. the last mile at nike has always been one of my worst. I was able to make up like 15 spots in the last sprint.
twas a bad race for us which was dissapointing but thats how it goes. we got 2nd to last lol. despite us not really achieving our goals, im really proud of our team, proud to be apart of this group of guys. We may not have filled our racing potential but we did good and improved in the process and dedicated to hard work and eachother every day this season. fantastic season and fun trip as always. pretty much my last high school xc race with the team
