Kicking Off the Season

Our first cross country meet was today!
We ran at Clinton Farms.
I'm happy to say that we had many runners PR on this course.
I ran a 25:50, which isn't my best time, but it's enough to keep me on Varsity for the next meet.
And, compared to ALL of my times last Cross Country season, it IS a PR (off season races excluded).
2 whole minutes faster than the crap I was running at the end of last season.

Needless to say Coach was pretty proud of me.

But on a downer note, I think I might be getting sick.
Practice all this week was a major struggle, and this morning my throat really started bothering me.
I'm super prone to strep, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's just a fluke.
I AM, however, going to get everything checked out on Monday.

College classes have been keeping me pretty busy, so my life is officially being re-consumed with school.
I hope everyone else had a great week!

Into the Wild

Was a great book! And a very good movie (although very depressing in the end...)
But anyways. All was well on the running front this Saturday.
I did a 9 miler that actually felt pretty good!
The weather was a lot nicer than it has been.
SO ready for fall runs.
I didn't run Friday or today, but I walked 4 miles Friday and 3 miles today.
My legs were feeling a bit off, and with our first Cross Country meet this coming weekend, I didn't want to take any chances.

But on another note, my house has been creepily quiet this weekend!
We moved my sister into Georgia Tech on Friday, so we're having to slowly adjust to her not being here.

I hope everyone else had a lovely weekend and got some solid runs in!
