Felt pretty calm all day until about 10 minutes before the race. Heart rate spiked and I got hecka nervous. Gun went off and I felt good and wanted a 5:10 first mile but it was a 5:04, but at the first mile I was in about 45th. Realized it was region and place was all that mattered, started to pass consistently for the next 1.5. Ran past Gill at the 800 and he said "It's now or never go see stars" which gave me some serious motivation. Last 800 was a 2:19 lol. Shoutout to the rest of the guys and the girls for both taking third and qualifying for state!
