Monday Mile Trial

So today turned out to be the BEST FIRST DAY OF CROSS COUNTRY EVER.

I was fully expecting it to suck hardcore. Practice was at 3:30 and it was 100 degrees outside.
Major bummer. And mile trials were today. Every first day of the season Coach times everyone on their mile to set the lineup for the first meet.

And this is where things take an epic turn.
Right before we lined up to run, he said that if we were at the timed mile during Summer practice (which I was!) that we didn't have to run it again, provided that we could remember our time.

I definitely did. 7:18, my best timed mile to date.
SO, not only did I not have to run a mile as fast as I could in the horrible heat, my solid time put me in third place for the lineup!

Of course, the boy's captain and I went on a three miler after practice so we didn't TOTALLY slack off today.
We ran McDonalds (an out and back run). We stopped for water and he randomly decided to buy a burger and eat it right before we set back out.
Needless to say his stomach was killing him when we finished.

Anyways, I've rambled quite enough.
I hope everyone else had a lovely Monday!
