Good race. Wasn't feeling amazing but was prepared for the pain that was coming. Body wasn't where it could have been but mind couldn't have been more ready. got to starting line and after the gun went off I went out hard. First mile 4:48 right in the frontish of the pack next to camren todd. Got ready for the pain that always comes after the first mile and it was more intense than I was expecting. I slowed down and hit 10:00 for 2 mile. Then saw that we were in the race and could qualify for nationals and picked it up a little at a time and got up a little closer. Kicked hard but one guy passed me which could have lead us to the win but we got 3rd with 109. Good race overall. Feeling hopeful cuz of the tie with timpanogas. Exciting race though.

Do you realize that if you'd run your first mile slower you'd have been faster overall?

You ran 4:48, 5:12, 5:07

If you'd instead ran 5:00 you could have repeated the 5:00 and come home in 4:48 for a total time of 15:22. That would have put you close to top 20 and shirt-worthy.

Our coach told us to race from the front and also the beginning part is a crazy near sprint so after that I probably settle into around 4:58 pace. And I've just struggled this year when I don't get out hard. So I decided to chance it and it worked well enough.

That start is just blazing. Way to hang in there after. Congrats to you guys. Super stoked for your trip to nationals - it's going to happen; I can feel it!

I guess your coach knows you well enough to know you can handle an early sprint and then settle in. But in reality this always leads to a slower race. The sad fact is most highschoolers all do sprint out and then they all do run slower than they could. So I understand the strategy of not having to come from behind because that takes personal wherewithal, but as far as actually racing faster, it's really not that smart.
