Oh my gosh! Such a fun race! I felt good getting going and was consistent. Our race was kinda inconsistent but I did my best to keep my pace and was up front leading which was nice. Came through 3k in 10:36 and 3200 in 11:21. Started to tighten up around 6 laps to go, but took the lead of our pack with an NAU girl, we reeled in this girl who took off and I kept the pace steady after that. I felt good, but it was hard good, not quite so smooth as the last time. Finished in 17:48 which is a 12 second PR! I finished Stronger too with my last mile being 7 seconds faster than last time! Excited to keep it rollin. Coach Houle seems to be happy with me as well and I’m super excited about that! Finished 4th? Maybe 5th. Idk. Also I like racing late I decided. It’s just hard to wait til 11:00 pm (12:00 am Utah time) to race cuz usually I’m long asleep by then

Holy cow Jos! You’re so speedy! Coach is probably bouncing off the walls because of how happy he is with you and the rest of the team. You are absolutely killing it!! That is a stellar 5k. Congrats girl :)
