In my defense, it was too hot in that stadium and I was sick and couldn't breathe. oh yeah, and I suck. I went way too slow at the beginning. The pace felt fast so I told myself the other guys would die later, so I relaxed. Then I found myself in last place. By this time, it was already too late, so I sucked it up and finished as best as I could. My legs were fine the whole time, but I really couldn't breathe. On the last lap, I was still in last place, but I was close to the guy who was second to last, so I realized that I hadn't used anywhere near all of my energy, and sprinted hard to catch him. It was a fast kick, but that's because the rest of the race was way slow

That's how I felt in the mile last year at BYU. Luckily it only lasted for one race and I felt okay for the 2 mile. Race two events next time
