Daily Note

One of those races I don't think I'll ever forget. A lot of that is thanks to how strange it was. Course was good, cold weather was awesome, first miles of the race were... super slow? I probably shoved (and got shoved by) more people than ever in a race thanks to how bunched up it was. Consequently felt really good and was with the rest of our pack which was fun, but at a certain point people turned on the jets and I really didn't. I could not tell you why--my legs felt good and I saw a UChicago guy ahead I could've gotten--but despite an alright final kick I finished that race wondering why I didn't give it more. And that made waiting to hear if we qualified for the next 24 hours excruciating. I knew I couldn't end my cross country career like that.
