Because I like being humbled, I ran the 3,000M at the Jack Harvey Invitational on Saturday, at the University of Michigan. I finished fourth . . . out of seven. I got to the meet, looked at the heat sheet, and when I saw there were only seven of us in the race, I figured I was racing for sixth. So, at least in that sense, I exceeded my expectations.
I also continued my drive back to mediocrity, running 9:17, which is roughly a 9:54 two mile. It's also 17 seconds faster than I ran at Kent State, which is a larger track. I'm not sure if that's owing to increased fitness on my part or that I didn't run the Mile like I did at Kent. Either way, I'll take it.
