Nick returned home on Sunday from his race in Falmouth, Massachusetts. He ran a 3:59 mile and finished second in the race. Although getting passed in the last 10 meters of a race is never fun, we’re still happy with the race. As a biased wife, I think a sub-four-minute mile off of one track workout is pretty incredible. But Nick is a big time competitor, so even if he’s only been training for a few weeks, he always wants to win. I just remind him that there will be plenty of opportunities for him to win after he’s done a few weeks of workouts on the track.
I can’t say just yet where he’ll be racing next, but I’ll update the blog with our plans soon! We’ve got just under two months until the Commonwealth Games in October!
