Happy Thursday to you all! Anyone else have a three day weekend? So pumped. There will be plenty of blog catch up, running, relaxing, and FOOD! Easter Brunch? Oh yes. And since I haven’t had a piece of candy in 37 days, probably lots of these
I promised you all a race recap, and I hate breaking promises! Yesterday was my first outdoor track meet
of the season of my life. I just realized this year is the first time I’ve ever competed in outdoor track! Wahoooo. Any who, I hydrated well during the day and was feeling really good and excited to race.
There was a girl my coach was telling me about and she was definitely possible competition, but I avoided letting that mentally psych me out and I was ready to race. You know what my coach for next year told me? You have to hate losing more than you like winning. I think this is definitely true for me and it motivates me to give everything I have during a race.
I did my warm-up making sure I stayed loose right up until go time, and suddenly I was on the line waiting for the gun to go off. Going into the race, my goal was just to finish first so I could get the points to help my team win the meet. I got out in front and just comfortably ran two miles, without anyone really pushing me. I qualified for states (I think?) and had fun! The wind was a bit of a challenge at times, but nothing too bad. Overall? A successful race!
If you’ve got the next couple days off, enjoy! And if not…don’t worry, it’s almost Friday 🙂
Also, two more days to enter my Rush Bowls giveaway! Go for it.
