It’s May 19th, my high school track season is almost over, and it feels like It just started. My history teacher, Mr. Kulsrud has always tried to talk me into running track, so I decided to give it a shot. Last fall Scott challenged me to break 4:40 in the mile during one of our track workouts. Running a 4:44 that day in the midst of a workout made me think that I might do well at track. After taking a short break after the Junior National Championships, I slowly began to get my legs into running shape over a several week period. My hope in concentrating on the mile are to gain some power and speed in my legs. So far I have been having a great time. All we have left is League Districts, and then the state meet the last weekend in May. I’m finally just starting to feel like I’m in running shape. It took 4 or 5 weeks and I struggled a bit with shin splits when I started. I have to say that I have really enjoyed getting the chance to compete in the sport. Track definitely has its similarities because it is an individual race, but I also feel like it is quite a bit different. It’s a different type of hard. It’s a race just over 4 minutes, and in that 4 minutes you have to be very aggressive, there are no down hills to recover like in skiing. I think it should be very beneficial to my skiing. I feel lucky to have gotten the chance to compete with a lot of talented runners. I can tell there are a lot of very dedicated kids and coaches putting a lot into the sport, always trying to raise the bar, a lot like what we are trying to do in skiing.br /br /Here are the meets and what my times where for the day.br /Royal WA:br /1600m, 4:47, 2nd placebr /Tonasket WA:br /1600m, 4:43, 1st placebr /Quincy WA:br /1600m 4:39, 1st place, School Recordbr /3200m 10:15, 3rd place, School Recordbr /Oroville WA:br /1600m, 4:55, 1st placebr /Winthrop:br /1600m, 4:31, 1st placebr /800m, 2:06, 1st placebr /Bridgeport:br /1600m, 4:54, 1st placebr /3200m, 10:49. 1st placebr /br /This is a picture of me about to make my move 2 laps into the race at Tonasket.br /a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_pZgXW6b1QMk/ShIqbUF3OzI/AAAAAAAAAAs/BifJgSVVEEM/s1600-h/DSC00041.JPG”img style=”margin: 0px auto 10px; display: block; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 320px; height: 240px;” src=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_pZgXW6b1QMk/ShIqbUF3OzI/AAAAAAAAAAs/BifJgSVVEEM/s320/DSC00041.JPG” alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5337375157125593906″ border=”0″ //adiv class=”blogger-post-footer”img width=’1′ height=’1′ src=’https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2910103639238326543-6993723070152249653?l=methowolympicdevelopment.blogspot.com’//div
