I drove back to Yakima this morning to watch Josh in the 1600 meter race. This being the regional meet, there was a very strong field of runners. For 3-1/2 laps Josh held his own staying in the front four on a blistering pace, yet again faster than he's done before. About 20 meters from the finish line Josh ran out of gas. Staggering the last bit in he slipped from fifth to seventh place and yet still finished at 4:20 or 4:21. He gave it everything he had. It was awesome.
Josh's time was 4:20.36. He would've finished at 4:18 had he not run out of gas.
