Running-Trail race 14:13  4.0 km (3:33 / km) +15m 3:29 / km
shoes: Saucony Kilkenny
NC invite: 1st meet of the season. Conditions: cool, but humid. Nice and forceful at the beginning, sticking with Cal, Jacob, Jack. Just behind Jack in the first 2k, then caught up and ran with him for a kilometer. I almost fell on an area of rougher ground at the bottom of the open hill by CEC. He pulled away just after the 3k mark, but I was still racing a bunch of Carmel kids that I couldn't tell apart. Really opened up my stride down the south pass hill and passed a few, then I was passed by 1 on the way back up. I pushed, stuck with the increasing pace and sprinted past two of them in the final 100. Finished 2nd on the team in the Freshman/Sophomore race. 13th in the race. A nice way to start the season.
