Cross Country State Championships

States went ok, not as planned but it was fun. The team finished up 6th overall out of about 40 or 50 teams. The day was nice, a little windy but overall it was a fast course. It was crazy going into the state meet with less then 200 miles of running in my legs, but my goal was the same, to hit last years time of 15:44. I went out well hitting the mile and the two mile a exactly the same as last year! 5:03 and 10:13... I was running well, I was inside the all state margin but there was one problem. I was the only one of the team up here. I hit a wall at about 800 meters to go unfortunately. I just didn't have that last half mile in me and I drifted back to 46th place at the finish. I could not have run any harder though I nearly blacked out at the finish... and for that reason I am content. I finished best for dexter with Matt finishing 2nd The team just had not had the legs today. Matt and Taylor who usually run with me and ahead sometimes were to far back. Next year is that last chance for the state title I have always wanted... Hope everyone had a great weekend! Here are the results if you wanted a look! http://www.mhsaa.com/portals/0/documents/BXC/2011%20Finals%20Results/LPB1.pdf
