Wow... So lets start from where we left off... Friday... Lets see... Friday, friday, friday... F*** friday, nothing happened on friday, friday sucked...

Saturday... The big day... So much happened today that when I finally got home, I collapsed into my bed and didnt wake up till noon today...

I woke up at 6:00 to get ready for my track meat up in Cordova... I was really pumped for this race because on Friday, my coach announced that I would be running the 3000 and the mile in the distance medly (which is a relay with different distance races, going from the 800, to the 400, to the 1200, to the mile)... I got up made myself some good toast and then left the house...

I arrived at Laguna about 6:50 where I took 2 bouncy balls outa my backpack and started playing with them... Then I bounced one, it got out of control, hit a girls CD player... Then we stopped...

Then the busses arrived and we loaded up... It was a longer drive than we anticipated, but that was OK... Gave me time to eat and play cards with my buds...

When we got there we went to the bathroom and got our warmups together and ran our two lap jog and started to do drills... The people doing the 3000 got outa the drills a little bit earlier and did another warmup to get ready... Then we streached and got ready to run... Then we were told it was actually gunna be a flat 3200 so that didnt matter much and we continued to get ready... We were a little late to the starting line but still made it in time...

It was a good race... For the first 5 laps I was able to stay with Kevin but then I started to get really tired and fell back... On my 7th lap, Adam lapped me... Meaning... I was on my 7th lap, and he passed me while he was on his 8th... Kevin ended up beating me by a good 30 seconds or so... And Adam came in first place for our JV race... Running a 10:30 roughly... As for me... I ran about a 12:20... Which was still pretty good considering I had some trouble pacing myself...

After the race we did our cooldown and watched more races... Then I was notifyed I would be doing the 800 too so I started to warm up for the 4 by 800 relay... We had to do two warm ups because we did our first warm up too early...

I didnt do so hot in this race because I couldnt find the right pace... And there isnt much time to find that pace because your only going for 2 laps... I ended up running it in about 2:35, Kevin ran his in 2:28, and Adam ran his in 2:21...

Then we did our cool down and watched more races... Finally we started warming up for my final event the distance medly... I was on team B ((The lesser of the two teams))... Which consisted of Nam, running the 800, Ronnie, running the 400, Manvir, running, the 1200, and me, running the mile... Team A consisted of Joel, running the 800, Chris, running the 400, Kevin, running the 1200, and Adam, running the mile... There were a good amout of teams in the race... Both teams got whooped... But team B got especially burned... Although... I was very pleased with my performance... Individually for my mile, I ran a 5:32 and I think I had room to do even better... But compared to Adam's mile time, which was 5:01, I looked pretty bad...

After our final race we did yet another cool down and stretched out... Kevin called him mom and we left early at about 5... We were there quite a long time... About 8am to 5pm... I was burned out... And the day was still young...

Kevin's mom was very generous and stopped for us to get food on the way back to Elk Grove, we decided to go back to Elk Grove becasue we had more time than we thought we would have...

She brought us straight to the band room where Mr. Souliere was very pleased to see us there... He couldnt be at our performance tonight because he was conducting the band for the Wizard of Oz... So his wife was in charge... And Jordan's dad and Mr. Souliere's brother went and played with us...

We were to play at the Division 1 Championship basketball game at Arco Arena where it was Franklin vs. Laguna...

Oh it was a night to remember, the bus didnt get there till late so we had no time to warm up and started playing without being warmed up... It was OK though... We still sounded good...

Franklin's band was there as well... Being conducted my Mr. Reese, who used to be the conducter for the band here at Laguna until Franklin opened up and he left... Everyone seemed to hate him, especially Mr. Souliere... So it was our duty to sound a whole lot better than them... Which we did... We beat the crap outa there band...

Oh it was good fun... And to top it off... Laguna won the basketball game 52 to 49... Making up the division 1 championships... It was a night to remember... What a game...

I left with my mom from Arco Arena when behind me I heard 5 or 6 gunshots... I turned around and saw a car speeding away as its tires were screaching... I looked towards the main entrance where I saw everyone running... And then I heard in the distance police sirens... After that... I just wanted to get the heck outa there... My mom and I left knowing that something happened... I later found out that someone was shot... I have heard it was Matt Olsen but I dont think anyone knows for sure... I am sure I will find out tomorrow...

I got home and collapsed in my bed... What a day...

Chores and sleeping was all I did today... And rave about how we are division 1 champions!
