Definitely not how I planned it to turn out. Got a horrible start cuz I was on the second line and someone fell in front of me right after the gun. Got swallowed by the pack and tried to avoid the piles of people falling down but finally tripped over somebody and went down. Got up and started working up, 70th something place at the mile. Worked into the 20s with a mile to go, didn’t get past there. It took a lot to try and avoid panicking and focus on moving, moving, moving. And of course I felt sick to my stomach, I think due to prerace nerves or midrace anxiety. I’m pretty sure that covers all the excuses haha. Thinking back on it, I don’t know how much more I could’ve done in my situation. I maybe could’ve been more aggressive after I fell but who knows how much more energy that would’ve taken from the last mile. Really disappointed considering I had higher expectations for myself at nationals. My last high school cross country race should’ve been one of my best, but I guess everyone can’t have a great race. Time to learn, take a break, and move on to track.

Ran along the course and did some strides after. The course is muddy but it should be perfect racing weather, especially if it’s raining

Portland, Oregon. 4 miles from Nike HQ. Went on these trails through the forest then on the famous Michael Johnson Track surrounded by trees. Achilles felt good, I love KT tape and compression socks. Met Galen Rupp, got a pic with him, got lots of free gear so I’d say it was a great day.

Achilles issues, went to physical therapy, did 15 minutes on the bike there. Did another 14 miles biking after I got home. Going to run tomorrow and see how it feels.
