this is so sweet and adorable that i can’t come up with a response that’s even remotely equally as sweet and adorable.
awww you guys are so sweet! thank you so much! :)
(This is Katie.) I might be wrong, but I don’t think Karina had to fill out any of those because schools were looking at her. But if you’re looking at a school (like me), then yeah, you should fill out the form that the school had up. And then they’ll contact you, I believe. It’s also supposed to be really helpful if you contact the coach, because it shows you’re interested.
Um, just for safety purposes I don’t think I should broadcast that information hahaha sorry! Both of them are in New England though
Hey! Well. I have an almost identical situation. I ran 5:01 in the mile and everyone - including me - was CONVINCED I would go sub 5 at conference last spring. I wanted to soooo bad. But I came up short with 5:07.
It was an extremely crappy pill to swallow but it was important for me to realize that 1. I’m not invincible and 2. A bad race is perfectly okay and doesn’t mean you’re any less of a runner or any less talented.
I picked myself back up and decided that once I took another stab at it, I’d do it. I haven’t yet because I focus more on 1000/800, but next time I run it outdoors, I believe I can do it. And I believe you can crack that 6 minute barrier!
So my best advice would be to LOOK FORWARD and keep the faith. Work hard for your goal and you’ll do it! :D xo
