One of my favorite race on our home course. It was super hot today (~90). I ran the JV race and was hoping that my legs would not hurt as bad. I ran the first mile at 7:00 pace and was in about 15th place and third on the team. I just kept pushing, my legs hurt and my mind was telling me to drop out but I battled in my head and said no. Maren passed me at about 1.5 miles on the hills. I passed Abby just past 2 miles then Daphne right after that. I kept pushing hard and not letting my mind win and past Maren with 800m to go. My mouth was super dry and legs hurt but I did not stop and ended up 1st on our team and 3rd overall for the race. Our team won the JV race overall (we were 3,4,5,10,12)! I ran a warmup and cool down and sat in the creek. A great day and I got the fear from my Century race out of my head. Earned a spot on varsity for next week's race!
