Breakfast with my Dad via FaceTime.
Downloaded a new app called The Vine and sat on there for a few hours. Never made it out for a 2nd run. Oops. Homemade pasta and sauce for dinner with Bob and Sarah. Bed by 11ish.
August 4th (Sunday): 5:50am wakeup. Some oat bran for breakfast. Made the drive down to Wakefield, RI. Arrived by 7:30ish. Inside to pick up my number and relax in the elite suite in the school. 3 mile warmup (21 + strides). 9am start. Lots of competition so I knew it was gonna be a fast start. Kept within my means and ran a tough race. 5:00 (shock to the system and felt wayyy faster), 5:10 (hurt, but okay), 5:11 (pushed this mile and not much came of it), 5:04 (strong finish with some downhill). Finished 6th overall in 20:25 and grabbed some money. Sweet. A couple boxes of "The Switch." A sparkling juice drink. 5 mile cooldown (35:32). Over to the race director's house, Scott Bessette. Pizza, burgers and hotdogs. Hung out for a bit before making the trip back New York.
Terrible arm swing while sprinting.
