My legs felt kind of sluggish throughout the run today, so I just went with what my body would give me.

Did most of the workout with Tom. We did a fartlek with some at race pace, and then a hill that he hit at race pace effort. Things felt pretty good, especially considering I went skiing last night. The flat part efforts honestly felt extremely easy.

Ran six or so with Tom and then a little more after, it wasn't super fast, but just a good run with a good friend

We did a light warmup before the race, nothing crazy, just some jogging, a little stretching and a few strides. The race played out different than I was expecting. I honestly thought it would be a little more competitive, so I didn't want to take the lead, but I ended up taking the lead by the first quarter mile and kept it the whole time. The hills made it an exciting race to say the least. My first mile split was 5:38, my second was 5:43, and then my third one was 5:12. I was honestly pleasantly surprised with my fitness level. This also sparked my racing love again. We did an easy four miles randomly through Ogden afterwards, which was also super beneficial.
