kauffman@herald-mail.com I'm not really sure what the perfect race would feel like - I only ran indoor track for two months my freshman year at North Hagerstown before musical aspirations pulled me away - but after the Maryland Indoor Track Championships 10 days ago, I know what it looks like. At the start, you've got 1,600 meters between you and a state title. You've also got 11 other runners to contend with. You go out under control, not wanting to surge ahead too fast and leave yourself with nothing in the tank for the final lap, but also not wanting to fall so far behind the leaders there's no hope of catching them in that lap. With two laps to go, you need to make a move.
