Through squishy sand, slippery, slidey surfaces in the sun, and Sweet Baby Ray’s sandwiches, the superb Issaquah XC squad ran stupendously at Lake Sammamish State Park on Saturday! After every race, it was so exciting to see so many of you smiling because of PRs and sub 21, sub 20, sub 19, sub whatever pesky barrier it was that you finally conquered. LOVED seeing the team support – especially those of you who came early or stayed until the end to cheer on your teammates. AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME.
