Nathan Schmitt had a magical race at the IHSA Class 2A state meet.
The Lake Forest High School junior finished as the state’s runner up after completing the Saturday, Nov. 3 race in 14 minutes 47.96 seconds, a new personal record for the boys cross-country runner.
“There is something about that course that no matter what you do you’re going to run faster than usual,” he said. “I went through the first mile in 4:45, and I went through and thought, ‘This was the most relaxed I’ve ever felt running a 4:45.’”
