Saturday was Grass Relays at Westlake high school. It was a great experience, a pretty good race for me, and a good confidence booster for my cross country season. We took the bus to Westlake, jogged the course, and then races began. I warmed up with Tyler about an hour before and then I had the opportunity to run the first leg of our five-man relay team. It was about 11 when boys varsity started. I ran a 10:36 as timed by my coach, finished my leg in 11th place and handed off to Tyler. We did the best we could and we finished twelth at the meet. Brian, Ali, and Riley raced next and we didn't all have the best races ever, but I'm still proud of all of the guys and it was a good day for PG. We definitely did a lot better than last year which is very encouraging. I was also glad I got to see Zac, Josh, and Seth from Lone Peak, Casey, Carson, Patch and Mckay from American Fork, as well as other friends there. Overall it was a good way to kick off the season.

AM- Morning run to Lindon Park.

PM- We had an easy afternoon workout because of our race the following day. We did 3.9 miles at a slow pace, then three 200's: slow, medium, and fast.

AM- Third inspirational morning run. We went south, but the run sure didn't.

PM- Ty and I decided to run with Lone Peak today after Steven Boggis invited Tyler to. Got to see some great friends like Zac, Josh, Seth, Craik and others. We ran to PG and passed my house and Tyler's, then went back. We got 8.9 miles in at a reasonably good pace of 7:11. We also got drinks at American Heritage which was kind of funny. Once in a while it's really fun to go on a run with another team.

AM- Second great morning run. I think we did Apple Grove.

PM- Speed workout. Mile warm-up as usual. First we did 200m of each of our excercises (high knees, butt kickers, bounders, skips, and backwards high knees) and then we did 30 30's. It was hot but we got through it. I got 2.53 in the 16 minutes. Mile cooldown, stretched and did abs.

AM- First morning run today! The first of many great morning runs I'm sure. We met at 6:30 and did about 3 slow miles. I think we did the loop.

PM- We ran 60 minutes. It was our first afternoon distance run and it was tough. I started fast with Riley but slowed up at the end. I got 8.75 in the 60. Stretched afterwards.

Well, summer is officially over and we had our first after school practice. It was 800m relays, with varsity boys doing 6. My team was Matt Morrison, Ali, Brayjo and I, and there were three varsity boys teams and three varsity girls teams. Coach had two girls teams and us run one direction on the grass 800 loop, and two boys teams run the other direction on the 800 loop. We waited until everyone had finished each time to start a new race, and switched direction each time. It was hard running with no guys to push me, but my AP for the six 800's was 5:14 per mile. After coach told us he did the speed workout that way because sometimes in races we may not know exactly where the people we need to beat are. We cooled down (with an unexpected trust catch or two), stretched and did abs.
