Solving Non Existent Problems

A few minutes ago I had a great idea. I'll set up a super backup system. I'll put a 16gb SD card into my laptop, and then have it automatically back up my projects and photos in the background. Then I'll also set it to backup certain things to the internet, and even more to my external hard drive.

A week ago I had another good idea. Apparently the bugs have been ironed out and MacOS can now be installed on my laptop. Perfect. I love Mac OS and I don't have any particular affinity for Windows.

A couple months ago I was in my RV and had a big thought. The square footage is so small in here that I could install marble floors for next to nothing. How fun would that be to have a tiny RV with marble floors? And while I'm at it, I should put some LED lighting in. It's way more efficient than incandescent lighting.

End of Track Season

On Imported Blog

I had an post for my end of cross country season, so I thought I should probably have one for track as well.

I honestly could have not asked for a better season. I didn't even do well - I'm not close to being one of the elite private school runners in the city. I'm hoping I'll be next year. I say this season was so good because of my improvement. Simply from cross country season I shaved off over 25 seconds off my mile time. That's huge for half a year, especially when it's going from a sub 5:30 to a sub 5:00 mile. Again, that's not even close for being one of the top private school runners, but it's amazing when I compare to it where I was.

I must be realistic. I do wish I was a sub 4:40 miler, but that is almost impossible from where I was only a few months ago. The improvement I made in the little time I had was phenomenal and I'm proud of it. My 1600m pace for my 3200m personal best was faster than my fastest mile during cross country.

I can't wait till next year, though. Cross Country and Track. I only have one year left. I'll run in college, but I won't be running for the NCAA. I want to make a name for myself, though, next year. I want to continue the improvement I've made in the past year and a half and go all out next year. I want to be an elite private school runner in the city, maybe even in the state. It's going to be hard, and the biggest barrier is going to be time. I may just not have enough time to shave off that many seconds.
