I ran the Bull Run Invitational at Hereford High School this weekend. This course is one of the hardest courses I have run in my life. Thank goodness it is over, I have been preparing for it mentally all week and was nervous for the results. I ended up getting the best time ever on that course so I was relieved – overall I placed 9th. It’s a preview for the state meet which I plan to be ready for at the end of the season!
I ran the Hood College Blazers Invitational this week and it was one of the flattest courses I’ve ever raced at. I was not happy with my time as I was cramping up during the race – I placed 7th. All of this is just telling me that I need to push harder and endure the pain to reach my goals.
“Mountain Run”, they don’t give it that title for nothing. The hills on this course are serious!!! I came in 4th place which was better than last year. I still need to improve to reach my all time goal … 1st place.
I ran my first meet of the season on Saturday September 6th in temperatures over 93 degrees. Unfortunately, I got off to a slow start and ended up in 7th place. Pretty disappointing, but it is just more motivation to train harder and get better!
