Too many titles to choose from

Yeah so I felt pretty strong and fast last night on the track. I had to force myself to back it off as Hal only called for 2 miles of intervals and CK had us doing 3 (albeit with a ton more rest than usual) So i blasted out the first three quarters and then the first 800 (bombed the last 200 of that one due to the worst side stitch I have ever felt in my life, I literally had trouble walking that one off) and eased off a little bit and helped Su blast out some of her fastest track splits ever. We don't always see eye to eye but for some reason I totally understand people on the track. And last night I "got" it when I knew we were closing in on her fastest 800 and 400. I guess that is just something I get. The track is a place where we all come to achieve goals, and that is something that I get and respect.

It was an oldies night for me on the way to and from the track so i was jamming along with the oldies and feeling pretty good. It was a good night. Too bad I slept horribly. Boo!

I am debating a PR on Monday now considering the track splits. Nothing lost if I don't make it. We will see how I feel race morning, or I guess I should say race afternoon. ;)

Papa Louie and B2 were also out last night at the track producing some mad fast splits. Dang I wonder how it feels to be a speedster!

Elizabeth,
