today was my first college track race. what an experience it was. i forgot how incredibly tough track races were. i have been gone from that sort of excitement for too long. i don't really want to talk about the race too much. i don't remember a lot and i can't say i want to be a 1500 m runner. i'd rather run the 3k steeple or 5k. anyway, 1500 was an animal of a first race back. i hit my paces that i visualized. i felt really great the whole run, i felt strong, i just didn't have my speed legs under me.
i ran a 4:45.1. i'm happy with this. after all, it's early and i have only done 4 works and been seriously running for 2-3 weeks now.
i love track. did i mention that? i so much enjoy cheering people on. haley ran like a champ in the 5k running 16:40 and several of the guys broke 15. many people PR'd and all the girls in the 1500 PR'd. i'm glad i could be apart of that.
pictures to come soon.
