After putting off running the “run 40mins, walk 1min, run 20mins” session for the past 3 days, I knew I had to go for the run soon. As I looked out my window, I saw small groups of runners out on the cross-country course. And it wasn’t just one group of runners but many small groups all over the place. I quickly checked the university’s sports website and found out that there’s going to be the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Mid-Atlantic Cross-country Race taking place at Lehigh on Saturday. Since there’s going to be an official race on Saturday, I couldn’t put off my run till Saturday, so reluctantly I went out for my run.
There were all these student athlete runners on the trail…very intimidating. So I went to do most of my run on the track but 40 minutes of round and round the track was absolutely boring. Eventually, towards the end of my run, I ventured on the cross-country trail and finished my run there.
The big race for the many of the runners who were out on the course yesterday for their practice run. I was in my room and I heard some commotion outside. I quickly took my camera and started recording the race from my window. Now you can see the video and know that the cross-country course is REALLY near my apartment.
