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 ❤

All results

**Regarding the confusion over course distance: It was indeed closer to a 3 miles (for everyone; they did not alter the course for any of the races). However, xc courses are rarely, if ever, exactly 5k. The elements and conditions of every course varies too, so time is ultimately pretty arbitrary in xc. So please STOP freaking out about the numbers. They are just a rough estimate of where you’re at, and yes of course still get excited about PRs. Overall, the most important thing is that you are learning how to work together and compete, which is what prepares you for the post season when all that matters is place.

This is the best that these runners have looked all season. Everyone ran aggressively, was engaged and focused, confident, and when the pain kicked in, these kids didn’t back off – they embraced it and ran hard through the finish. On top of that, there was some serious pack synergy going on, meaning that this group is learning to run together and help each other out, which can lead to immense improvements for all! All of the coaches were very impressed and proud of what Issy did out there. Let’s keep it rolling into this week (regardless of if the wheel’s prophecy is that you survive the swim upstream or get eaten by a seagull 🙂 ).

Word on the street is that you all are having fun together, so that’s cool. Absolutely loving the vibes out there. Keep it up!

And of course, THANKS to all the fans who made the trek over to cheer on your fierce eagles!
