so so happy to see @believe-you-will-succeed again!! crazy how much has changed since May when we last ran into each other!! Today was disappointing for us both. I lost my shoe at 1k and ran through tears just to finish. Tough day but I know we both have BIG things ahead :)
This 5K was CHAOS… 80+ degrees, 90% humidity, 40min delay (and 2 full warm-ups). I managed to finish 1st collegiately and 3rd overall. We went out RIGHT on pace, but by mile 2 we were literally going slower than my 10K pace. Didn’t break 17 like everyone in the pack wanted to (nor did I even come close), but I gritted this one out.
(Ironically, I ran with some of my future teammates next year at ECU and had the coach cheering me on the whole way)
