5k on a track is fun!! you're gonna do great
Agh chemistry and lab reports... sounds very fun... About the 5k, you got this! I used to hate doing long distances on the track (I still kinda do) but the distance flies pretty quickly and if you pace yourself correctly it can be a lot of fun to pass others who didn't (sadly, I was usually the one who got passed). Good luck!
Tracks are flat you'll be fine. :) Try picking a consistent pace as said above. Im not sure what you'll be running but 3:50-4:00 maybe?
So I when I saw 5k and I saw this time and thought you killed it, and was very confused why you said the race was going poorly...
Just pretend you have a layover in MSP.
Haha thanks for the tips, guys! Daniel and Michael- yeah, I think pacing will be key. Tracks just seem fast and scary but I guess the 5k is slower and more controlled :)
Good luck! Hope it goes well
