And just like that, the season is nearly done. The time flew by almost as fast as you all run! Some of you have done 4 races in 10 days (that’s a lot), so it is normal to feel a bit worn out at this point. Luckily, you all have enough time to physically recover and mentally recharge before the next, and, for many of you, last meet of the season (*tear*). Keep doing your best to sleep, fuel, take care of any ailments, and do everything in your control to be in tip-top shape for this final stretch. You’ve put in the work, now be confident and trust yourselves out there, Issy.

Some seniors getting sappy ❤
Or maybe just happy to almost be done…?

It was very impressive how well you all raced in the hoards of people. Navigating through races with so many bodies and elbows flying everywhere is an added challenge that take up extra energy. Regardless of the un-ideal conditions, majority of you still ran fast and/or PRed, which shows that you are adaptable and that there is still more to come for you all. So…let’s get after it Tuesday at St Edward!! Final dual meet of the season. PROCESS BEFORE OUTCOME. NO REGRETS. ICE. HAVE FUN 🙂

Scheppats (awww!!) (pc Lawrie)

PS: Coach Lizzzz wants to remind everyone to get in those ZZZ’s

Even coaches need a nap sometimes!

Looks like Mt Si doesn’t want to bring the phone :/ (pc Lawrie)

Had a strong pack of boys with Heninger, Fuhs, Imai-Takemura, Barran, Carmichael and Rosenkranz all in the top 20!

Overall, great performances today and execution of race plans. You guys did super well pushing and feeding off of each other in your packs. Way to run hard and support each other! Little reminder for you all – as it gets chillier (~60-deg and below), it is important that you bring and WEAR warm clothes, before your race. You will perform and feel much better in your race when your muscles are warm and happy even if you think you “feel fine” wearing shorts pre-race in 56-degree weather.

And THANKS to you fans who bundle up and support, regardless of the conditions outside ❤
