Racing in April is one of the highlights of high school spring racing. Running in one of the many heats of a big invitational, the excitement of the events, many runners set their very bests. I recall running a 2 mile in King City, California at the King City Invitational. Lap after lap, I was running faster than I ever had. I recall that it was so very easy that day. In a section with 40 fellow runners, I ran my PB for two miles.
Racing is now in the high season, stay focused and good luck!
