In mid October, that time would come, when racing and body would be one, and I would have some good races. In high school, it would be after 5-6 races, and in college, after 3-4. I would feel tough and want to battle someone at the end of the race. If I could get a good break, I could feel it, and push it a bit. In college, we had some tough courses, and we finished up a 300m hill on one.
