warmed up with alli. then got on the start line. i told myself i was going to chill at the beginning and i did. i started really chill and i so bad was getting antsy but i just chilled until switchback hill. then i started to push pretty solid. i passed a ton of people going up the hill and even more going down. at that point i was in 5th place. and i told myslef to just keep it up. i had to make myself think about using good form on the downhills and it really helped. i stayed in the same spot most of the race until the flattish part between poopout and reservoir hill. i passed 2 girls and a washington girl passed me. i ended up being fourth overall, and NO ONE passed me on the track! i can push at the end of races!!! it just took a bit of effort for me to finally figure it out. i shouldve pushed with the washington girl, but overall, it was a pretty great race. cooled down with mitch,dallen, addi, and macey.
