Alpine plus the usual courtesy cones, thanks to Artic Circle!  Then we did some strides and the sprinters were practicing getting out of blocks so Justin and I joined them.  Then we also did a backwards race til about the 25, then turned around and sprinted til the end after that which was fun!  Then Molen asked if we would do a 400 to pace the sprinters at a 60.  Went 60 exact.  Good times!

Gonna do more tonight.  Either 4 or 5.  Also helped at a junior high track meet and got to announce, our coach said to keep it "official" but I still threw in a couple things just for fun!  Good times!

Choke and joke of a workout.  10x400, it was super windy.  Went 64, 64, 65, 65, 65, 66, 66, 66, then idk what I hit for the last 2 cuz courtney made us take off our watches so we couldn't know the times.  Felt super weak all through the day.  In english I was tired after lifting a book out of my backpack so I kind of figured it was gonna be a buckle of a workout.  Cool fact though is Elder Christofferson served his mission in the Argentina Cordoba Mission!  Also there are basically all natives in my mission so I'm gonna be one of very few white people there.  Good luck to everyone racing today!

Church ball regionals was tonight!  Our team won by over 20!  55-33.  Scored 14 points, 7 steals, 4 rebounds, idk how many assists but i think around 5.  Also got fouled pretty hard and hit my head on the wall and landed on my shoulder which it hurts.  Oh well, all for the good of church ball and all the fans screaming at the refs who didn't call a foul on that... smh. Got like 20 minutes of playing time!

Courtney and ryan said just 5 or 6 since we struggled in the workout yesterday.  Went 5.  Then played some basketball after.  Was planning on going to the meet but i have 2 games of church ball tonight in the regional tournament so stayed home for that. 

Well basketball was great.  Won both games, one against a team that demolished craik's ward yesterday. We got them 42-40.  Then we won the other one 72-62 which was madi hafen's ward.  Pretty crazy games.  Played around 60 of the 80 minutes and probably got the most playing time of everyone on my team. Got a nice bruise on my knee and hip and some cuts and blisters but all for a good cause.  We're in the finals on tuesday so I'm ready to go win again hopefully!
