Why does high school have to go by fast?

Am I really a junior?

These are my best XC 5K times:
Freshmen: 21:59
Sophomore: 21:27
Junior: 19:54

Too bad my XC season is over.

Doesn't it actually suck that high school goes by way too fast? I swear I don't have enough time to improve. Like I'm going from 19:54 to breaking 16:00, like that will happen. But you know, we were all stupid when we were freshmen, right? If I wasn't stupid, then I would have probably gotten better than 19:54 when I was a freshmen.

So any other mistakes you regret doing?

    I know seriously. First quarter at my HS is over next week. So crazy how time flies.

    I was hoping to break 9:40 for 3200 this past Friday. It's been my goal since last year when I ran 9:46. Too bad I sucked a giant dong and only managed a 9:54.

    XC is already over in Ohio? Our post-season begins this week, and runs all the way through NXN on December 4th.

    You still have plenty of time to improve, if you're only a junior. Do you train through the summer?

    ^boo hoo

    you should do track. XC ends in the beginning of november in illinois. It ends earlier because it gets cold...

    High school goes by fast so we still remember all the little things that made those four years worth the effort.

    I'm so glad it's almost over. I'm ready to move on to a new place and a new chapter in my life.

    Just three more marking periods...

    XC ended in Ohio if you're JV about 2 weeks ago. But my 2 week break is over this Saturday at 12:30:40pm! (Race began at 12:10pm and my time was 20:40 which was worse than usual.)

    And I love what you said R3d3mpti0n which is absolutely true. Darn those little things which cause bigger actions.
