Right now my only reason to finish the year is to finally make it to the state meet. I made the top ten divisional all star team. I felt like i would make top twenty at varsity champs. with top thirty five getting a ninety dollar stippend for my trip to the state meet from Oahu to the big island. Every one wants this spot. I don't feel like being of my pace will benefit me on this cours at all. I don't want to complain but with the size of hill, running it three times on this course and a very slow moving course would hurt my original pace and now will destroy my made up pace. A good run by talented runners on this course is around an 18:30 from kids running 16:40's. I run a 17:15 on a good day. The odds are not in my favor any more.
The fact is that injuries suck. My friend Triston is out for the season with stress fractures and he is second or third best on the team. I just want to finish this season after getting such a great opportunity to do something good for my team.
Is there any good advice or a useful quote that can help inspire me for these last two meets? I need some help. Being in and out of the docters office trying to find out if i'm medically clear to run, i'm extremely down on myself. I feel like I caused what has happened.
All I need is something to hang on to during my race. My parents tell me that it's good to complain to get advice so hear it is.
Please leave a comment to help me.
