AM - 4 miles. Pretty warm this morning so some of us took our shirts off.
PM - 6.5 miles. PV Autumn Classic. Time - 10:43. Place: 9th. Fun Race Today. I got out quick and right to the front and then I slowed down and tried to set the pace which actually worked pretty well. It was really only Spencer Ford and Paul who went around me at the beginning. As we came past the baseball fields is where everyone started to move around me and I just kind of relaxed at this point. I can't really remember much of the rest of the race but Coach yelling at us that we were so close to their five. I could see Sage wasn't too far ahead just up the hill on the last lap but I was pretty tired and I settled a little too much at this point. I finally got up some courage to kick coming around the turn to the finish but it was too late and I finished less than a second behind Paul and 2 seconds behind Sage. That was one of our best races against DH this year. The score didn't really show it but that was the closest our 5th guy has been to their 5th so that was pretty cool. I ended up 4th on the team and that was good enough to secure my spot for Nike. Super excited for next week. Coach isn't signing us up for the Championship race which is kind of a bummer but we will probably run better in the Open race anyways so I understand.
