He needs to be focused on taking down the Balboa course record, not the Mich state meet record. Too many variables at MIS that time of year. Depending in the weather leading up to the race, the course can have a very hard surface (like Ritz's senior year) or, or very soft. Taking down Balboa cements himself as GOAT for US hs runners.
Then again, maybe he'll decide take a shot at the legendary NXN course record?.....
Why, the balboa course record would have been broken by RITZ (the michigan state record holder) if he had ran at the balboa park course. if he breaks the Balboa course record that people will just say "ritz would have broken it anyways, why doesnt he have the michigan state record?" if he break michigan state record and wins FL again he can be very much in consideration for GOAT, and surely if he breaks Michigan and FL, but if he just breaks FL, theres always the arguement that ritz never ran there.
also since he lives in michigan im pretty sure he is not allowed to go to NXN due to stoopid state rules, although im fuzzy on that area i may be wrong.
