*2mile class C*

*2mile class B*
4×100-44.4– 5th place. Lead off leg.I felt like I ran a bad race, I started feeling fatigued here, not enough rest in between each race.
*2 mile class A and hurdles*(awesome watching Thode go 8:51)
100 Finals- 11.3– 4th place in Class B, into a slight headwind. felt like I had a bad start again.
*800 class A,B,C*
6th place overall, I had a slight wind to my back, ran very relaxed and really felt the fatigue at the end. I was happy after this race I finally got decent rest.
200 Finals-23.6 – 4th place Class B. This was my 6th race of the day and I was basically dead, by this time the wind had picked up a bit and we were running into it. I felt really fast though and didn’t die till about 10m to go, I stayed with the kids from rock island, homewood flossmore and zion benton, who barely edged me out. When I heard the time I thought they meant 22.6.
Final thoughts: This meet was extremely competetive, so many great sprinting schools. Maine South, Zion Benton, Rock Island, Homewood Flossmore. It was great competition. Going into the meet my legs felt very tired, my calves still sore and quads just felt tired. Conference at home again next friday, really excited about the 4×200. we’re putting in a 400 runner to replace davis and we know he can run mid 22s.
