am- short run and yoga with my favorite person in the world...figi. oh! guess what?? on a regular morning practice day, me and alex usually leave at 6:05 ok. well today i woke up at 6:07. it was a real bummer...for a second. i set my alarm and woke up but then i turned it off and fell back asleep and then woke up again, at 6:07. i hurried and sprung out of but and looked at my watch and was like "oh no! i cant get left today!!" i ran out of my room and my dad was coming down stairs to see where i was and he was like "you better hurry youre gonna get left" and i was like "heck no i aint" and i hurried and brushed my teeth, grabbed my shoes and bag and left at approximently 6:09. we made it to practice all fine and dandy however i got like 5 minutes into the run and i had to flip back cuz i really had to go to the bathroom cuz i didnt have time before. then i ran back out to the girls and then just had to run like 40 seconds on my own. that is my "oh! guess what." after that swell run we had swell yoga, and then went on a swell bus ride to salt lake babay.

pm- warmed up like 20 minutes around the course and checked out the little part they added. quick side note. last year we finished our warm up put on our spikes as fast as we possibly could ran to the start and then were like ok were good. but then we couldnt hear what the announcer dude was saying, like i didnt even know he was talking, and then the gun shot off and no one (not just us, like lots a teams) was even like in a starting motion or anything ya know. and we were like oh the race started. we better start running! this year was MUCH BETTER. much better cuz i dont like when that stuff happens. anyway after our warm up we put on our spikes and i had plenty of time. which is good cuz it takes me quite a while cuz i tie them 4-5 times and then tuck the laces under each other. then we went to the start did some agilities, stides, said a prayer, did some cheers (ours was the best i think ;)) and then the announcer dude started talking and we could hear him !! (for the most part) then the race started and i was like leading the race for a sec. i dont know if i shoulda done that or not but whats done is done. then some girls passed me a bit and i really tried to stick with um. sorta did sorta didnt. felt pretty tired down the finishing stretch but finished 8th and got 17:37. i think i coulda given more (especially cuz when i saw the clock i went faster. i shoulda been going that already) but it was a good race. one thing im acually really really bummed about is that the course was like barely off of 3 miles. i thought it was 3 miles but apparently it wasnt and thats a real bummer cuz that means i dont have a new 3 mile pr but its ay-ok. our pack definently needs some work (as well as my spelling) and i really hope that we can fix it. we gotta work real hard if we want it to improve... (now read saturdays blog) acually this is a bummer cuz im almost positive youll read this 2nd. thats ok. you get the point.

*imagine this in my voice otherwise it probably wont make any sense whatsoever. 

oh a few cool things i forgot to mention. i hung out with my bff neptune today. got a dope swag shirt (with a v-neck :(( thats ok tho cuz its still a swag shirt). and rylee found a cool snake and named it roberta and i got to play with it for a sec. it was funnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.
