Cross Country (School grounds) 45:00  1.0 mi (45:01 / mi)
shoes: Blue Reeboks
We were going to have several practices in the same week of our first one, but, because of the bad weather we couldn't. Anyway, our secong practice was the test for the mile times throughout the year. this was our first REAL run and this time I worked on settinga good pace and a good strategy. As it turns out, I was pretty much the only one who thought about that becase when we started, EVERYONE shot out like bullets.
They were clueless. I stayed back and set a pace. It was a fairly quick pace, though it works out well for me. I worked my way around the school, passing many as I go. Soon I came to the finish, speed around the corner and through the line and got my time, 8:22. It wasn't my best time, but it made me in the top 7! If you are in the top 7, you get to run more at the meets, that felt good. I felt satisfied with my self ready for anything!
