Finally got to the BYU invite today. I loved hanging out and racing here with such a stacked field and plentiful babes to get shut down by. My race was pretty good too, I wanted to go sub-4:40 but I still pr'd by a few seconds so I'll take it. I was in the back for the first lap and then passed people each lap after until I found myself in first place. I really love being in front, but some AF chump ended up passing me and I barely missed out on getting the tape and his 4:39. I guess I need to push just a little bit harder and hopefully I can drop another six seconds at region next week.

Huge shout out TO MY FRICKIN BOY CONNOR!!!! he ran a 4:23 (2nd fastest overall not including golden hour) aaaannndd qualified for state. Sean also killed it with a 7 second PR for a 4:24.8 and missed state qualifying by decimals, He'll get it at region though. Thom also ran a personal best so it was a good day for Lehi.

Other notable preformances include my homies Conner Mantz and Garek for going 4:12 and 4:13. Maybe not as good as conner was hoping for but I probably shed a few tears when he held off Josh Collins at the end for the win. Also Garek just keeps on cutting off time and it blows my mind how fast he is these days. That 4A mile at state this year is going to be ridiculous. One last shout out to my friend and teammate Dylan for re-breaking his own school record with a 1:55 800, He's insane. 

Fun Fact of the Day: I'm sunburned as h*ck right now.
