So before I even talk about the race, let me preface this by telling what I was doing before the race. At school, mom had to call to release me from school, so about 20 minutes before she would call, I text her to see if she had called the school yet, and 10 minutes later, no answer. So I was starting to get worried and text her again, and again, then 2 minutes before I was supposed to leave, she responded. Ok so I'm out, but I agreed to take two other people from the middle school. I was nervous that I wouldn't be allowed to sign them out, I don't know how the middle school sign out system worked. But that wasn't a problem, and now I have two dependants, so if anything happens to them, it's my fault, so I was worried about that in general. And it was the first time I took myself to a big meet. And before all this, my family's having a hard time recently on multiple fronts (don't ask please), and didn't know I was even going to get to run this weekend. So with all that out there, it sounds like a lot of unneeded worrying.
On the first leg of the race, I messed up, partly because of the scale, and partly I don't know what, then lost confidence, so I was slow, making sure I was doing the right thing, then messed up 16, after I felt like I got some confidence back.
I thought the sprint in the woods was interesting, in the few sprints I've done, they've all been on campus.
