just ordered saucony A5’s and brooks pureflow 2’s for spring running.

watching fast people run is one of the most beautiful and mesmerizing things ever

the queen

my captain ran only 40 seconds slower than her at nationals in the 5k which seems like a lot but it’s D’ags so it’s pretty reasonable for the D1-D3 difference.

Grrrreat start to my spring season of racing!! Ran about a 24:15 on a slightly uphill course, (wasn’t too bad, mostly flat, with some long uphills) had a great kick and passed an old lady to be the 2nd overall woman! It was a pretty small race and high schoolers aren’t eligible because of track, but i felt strong and in control the whole race. My last mile was definitely my slowest, but also had the most uphill. Proud of what I accomplished this morning!! Can’t wait for my next 5k.

Race dayyyy! So nervous for this chilly 5k. Hopefully I’ll be safely under 25:00 so I can start some real training for the half marathon!

I want people to fear me in a race but then love me afterwards because im so damn sweet and hilarious that it’s impossible not to.

I want to be a fearless and relentless competitor but more importantly i want to be an even better person.

IN SUCH A BETTER MOOD NOW i was having a weird extended anxiety attack before i ran and i couldn’t concentrate on anything but then i ran 8 miles and kicked ass. soooo now i’m all high on endorphins and hopefully i’ll get some hw done tonight..

need to start aiming for 9, 10, 11 milers so that 13.1 in june feels easy, milage-wise. i’m still struggling mentally to get through 6 miles.

ok so my friend was supposed to go in to high school track practice with me so i could see my assistant coach and get a good plyo workout in but now she’s bailing and i don’t want to walk into my old high school and see my asshole head coach alone, it would be so awkward. so i planned on getting at least part of my run in with the hs distance team but now i’m too shy to go by myself so it looks like i’m running on my own again. dammit.

ran about 6 miles yesterday and it went ok, felt like way longer than that because i was outside. about to do another 6 miles. let’s see how my mental strength will do today. i’ve been so sooo unmotivated lately. idk why, i just can’t make myself run.
