I did my standard fade to last in the first lap and then move up. It works pretty well for me but this time I was a bit too slow on the moving up and missed the lead group. I closed harder than I should have been able, and think if I would have ran more even splits I could have run a bit quicker (my splits were roughly 47.7, 62.2, 64.1, 61.0). Easy stuff to fix for the next one. The question that arises though is can I run 8 seconds faster in two weeks to hit Nationals standard. That doesn’t look so good, but I’ll just keep plugging away and try to get it done on race day. I’ll keep you posted.
Also I got the opportunity to meet lots of fast and funny people after the race. Including this guy.

This is part of a little skit I've been working on with my family. If you ever want to roll in a tire, make sure you go fast, it's way on the shoulders if you go fast.
