How am I supposed to do two hours of homework after xc practice if I really just want to eat and sleep

Forgot to update about my race last weekend! First 6k of the season, down in Iowa, and it was hilly as heck. No joke. It was a course built for cross country so I guess it makes sense they found the only hills in the state. But my time wasn’t near where I wanted, I ran a 27:54 for a 20 second 6k pr. That’s 2:30 of my goal time for the season. Looks like I’ve got a lot of mental and physical work ahead of me! Let’s do this!

"When the hurt starts, there’s no change in strategy. You press on. When you’re tired, and it’s time to sprint at the end, you sprint at the end. The decision has already been made."

My life is a joke and I’m terrible at relationships and I’m taking on 4 stressful classes
But at least I have running! Gonna forget my problems for a few days and focus solely on the 6k pre-regions race in Pella, IA. First 6k of the season and I’m going to make it a 2 minute PR.

It’s not that the prodigy lacks joy. Or the newbie, conviction. It’s not that the up-and-comer doesn’t foretell dreamscapes, like halos of spun sugar. It’s just that when the comeuppance is also the comeback, our hearts break into a million pieces and reform into something that looks like hope. We know the loss, the injury, the pain, and the fear have created an environment only a few can sustain. The insanely dedicated. The embattled fighter. The athlete who knows everything counts because everything’s at stake. And we pull for them. Because they believe in their potential just as we hope to believe in our own.

The athlete who knows that everything counts … because everything is at stake !!!

holy crap this made me cry for an hour … this really gave me the last little bit of hope I have for a “comeback” at this point…
