Joining cross country my freshman year I didn't know what to expect. I came during the summer and did the workouts, I wasn't too serious about them but I didn't screw around either. At the alumni I got 21:51, not that fast but I still made it to Highland. At Highland I got 18:29, I was really suprised I did so well, I know the course is only 2.9 miles, but still. After that I started getting really serious with cross country. After a couple of more meets I made it to varsity. At the beginning of the year I would have never guessed that I would run varsity. At the end of the year I got the outstanding freshman award, I was proud to get it. My PR for this year was 17:52. My first year of cross country was really fun and it motivated me to work hard the next summer for the next season. I also did track, which wasn't nearly as fun as cross country. I only ran the 1600m and the 800 and I pretty much ran the same times for the whole season.
Sophomore year for Cross Country went pretty well. We all trained hard during the summer and it really payed off. The season was a bit bumpy for me, I wasn't really getting consistent times. One meet I would run a low 17 and the next a high 17. In the end the season turned out really fun and I hit a really big PR from last year.
Track went pretty well too. We started training and had some meets during the winter. This year I actually ran the 3200m and liked it a lot. I PR'd in pretty much every race that I ran in, it felt good. As I raced this season I felt more controlled and like a much more mature runner, even more than cross country.
