Last half of state track! Didn't think about 2 mile at all before to stay chill and keep my anxiety down. The tuna wiggle wasn't as weird and threatening as we practiced yesterday but I could still feel the chillness and power from it haha. First 2 laps we had a solid group then Jess broke forward to the top group while Ry, Jos, Caroline and I stayed behind. By the 5th and 6th lap Ry took a good lead with Jos, Caroline, then me behind. Listening to coach when he yelled to me to get up with the pack and surge each time we came around helped so much. I remember thinking of the last 800 as one I wanted to push myself more and finish strong. So after working with Caroline I moved my way to Jos for the last lap. The last stretch I kicked to Ry and we battled while the cedar girl randomly passed and claimed 5th place with Ry placing 6th! My dad got my laps: 1:18, 1:27, 1:24, 1:27 (5:37ish mile) 1:31, 1:31, 1:27, 1:20 (5:50ish mile). 5th and 6th laps could definitely use improvement! Finished with an 11:27.42, 7th place..again haha. All the girls did so good and this race was so fun cause it felt like cross country again!
Last race with Jos:( I'm gonna miss her so so much. I look up to her great leadership and hard work!! The 800 was pretty good, first lap faster than my last. Should've started my kick earlier cause at 150 meters 3 girls passed me. Gave it what I could tho, ending with a 2:23.01 (pr by .41 seconds), 7th place. Seriously the worst number. Ever.
State track was so fun and a great experience! Track season overall was awesome because it taught me to see and realize a greater potential for me and our team as a whole!!
