It is difficult to write a race report when races go poorly, oddly enough, writing a true narrative on a race that goes well is a far more challenging task. USATF Nationals was my goal race for the fall to some degree - however like other races inside this paradigm shift - I went in not feeling pressure , knowing that I was in great shape.
