New Indoor Mile PR!

Two weeks after my first race in nine months I returned to the University of Washington to compete in the Husky Classic. I raced the mile against a talented field of professionals and top-collegiate runners. It wasn't the smoothest, nor the smartest, race I've ever run but I was still able to run a new PR of 4:33.06 for the full mile! My time placed me 4th overall.

This week I will begin specific training for the Steeplechase, which I am very excited about! I am so thankful for my amazing teammates and coaches. This truly is Track Town USA, and there's no other place I'd rather be. If all goes well, I will have my first Outdoor race on March 16th at the Oregon Preview here in Eugene. I'm not sure exactly what race I will be running, but I'm looking forward to my first race at Hayward in the OTC uniform.
