Race today. Woke up and got on the bus at 6:30. then we drove down to Soda Springs to race 26 other teams. This race i raced in JV and top 20 (they said 15 orignally) got medals. We walked the course and saw the one hill in it. It was big but i knew if i was patient i could climb it. I watched the middle school kids run and then JV girls. As we were standing on the line the weather turned bad and the wind picked up, but off we went. Matthew was in front with me when a certain other JV runner who had said he could beat Matthew and I, bolted off. Then we got to the hill and we tucked in behind this kid. He was working and breathing to hard while matthew and i were relaxed and patient. We get to the top and we open up and lost the other runner. Last 1200m in the woods i am having stomach problems and promptly throw up into the trees without stopping or slowing down!! Now i am feeling better and Matthew is still in front by a little. Last 400m, we come in sight of the finish line and just go into a sprint Matthew crosses at 19:01 and i at 19:11. we both medal!!! My time actually beat 2 varsity runner's times so matthew and i both will be running varsity at Tiger Grizz!!!!!! oh about the kid who said he could beat Matthee and I, he finished 4 minutes after us. If you want to talk the talk you better be able to walk the walk!!!!! or in this case, the run.

7 miles of the "gully" run with Dad, Walter and Coach Murphy down in Salt Lake. Last night we went to a awesome pro soccer game for my birthday present. RSl vs. Dallas FC, it was awesome. So in the morning we went for a run with the Walter and Rob. Not bad paced and we talked racing skills and form most of the way.

Most difficult race today at home course!!! This is my first race as varsity runner and i was really excited! 38 teams were there so it was the biggest race yet. i raced at 5. The JV raced and Andrew's time would put him on varsity. so we started and within 300m Matthew tripped. he got back up and was on my shoulder again. i ran my first mile in 5:52, right on target. Next mile had the hills so i tucked in and was ready. I cruised through the hills and made it past the last one at the 800m mark. i thought matthew was on my shoulder so i kicked like i have never kicked before. i was 2 spots away from getting my other teammate. next time i will.

race day but this race is just a chance to work my legs. Coach worked us hard this week and this race is kinda weak. i mean they pair the fastest boy and fastest girl on each team so the other pairs on the team have no chance at winning. also the race isnt the best organized so today was a easy race. They had wait 45 minutes after the girls went for a reason that still escapes me. when we did go i went fast. up with the top boys. i hung with them for about1.37 miles and then i slowed down. it was a good course but narrow. Matthew was in front of me and wouldnt speed up and eventually both of us were overtaken by Andrew. It was narrow so i couldnt pass matthew i wish i could of but i couldnt. The whole team slowed down in this one and we dont know why. We as a team won everything. boys girls and coed but they had no trphies or even medals....... but wwe won!!!!!

We had trouble getting out fo the hotel due to a lazy and late teammate.  GOt to the eagle island state park on a cool and cloudy (rain clouds) morning.  My wrist is still hurting really bad even after I took 2 ibuprofens.  I saw my family and started to get warmed up...mna my wrist hurts.

The gun goes offf and I am immediately hit in my sore wrist and it explodes in pain.  I nearly drop out of the race in the first mile it hurt so bad.  Albert, Matthew and Matthew take off.  I get in front of Funk but am not able to get back with Gyles.  The course is fun but I am in so much pain I get out of my racing mode.  I run a new PR but so does nearly everyone else.  Really disappointed in this race as I was ready to go fast.  We had the EMT's tape up my wrist after the race.  Stick around to watch the other races but I am hurting and mad.   My teammates run hard and well and I am happy for them but mad that my teammate messed around on the bus and caused me to have this injury right before a big race.  Still pissed.

Need to refocus and get ready to run better at the meet in Twin Falls on Wednesday and get a better time.
