Just because running is simple does not mean it is easy.
One day at a time
Non ducor, duco.
Alleluia! After three straight mile races at 5:00.xx, I have finally broken the 5:00 barrier! I did it yesterday at a dual meet. I am EXTREMELY happy. This was pretty much my only goal going into the season, and I only have two meets left (maybe three), so this was big for me.

When I was in high school, I had the exact same goal and broke it about the same point in the season. Of course, I was a senior and you are a freshman. Nice work!
On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

I remember breaking 5 when I was in 10th grade and like you I seemed to hover right over 5 forever. People told me once I broke it there was no looking back...they were pretty much right...you will be down in 5:40's before you know it.
