It was another great morning to run the races even if it was a hurried morning. We had some successes and some learning opportunities. Out of 26 runners this weekend, our athletes achieved 19 new PR's (personal records)!

Thanks to John Gottlied for taking photos.
- Our high school runners had 6 new personal records today with Ashton Randolph showing the biggest change dropping 3:42 off his total time from 27:36 to 23:54! Congrats to Harley Johnston, Gabriel Wiles, Kayden Kimmons, Ashton Randolph, John Durfee, and Jackson Hodges on the new PR's!
- Our high school girls achieved their first total team score of the season with a team average of 34:32. Our high school boys improved their top average time from 26:38 to 25:00. Congrats to the boys team on a new Team PR. That's a huge improvement in 8 days since the last meet!
Here's 2 things we learned.
- Even though parents were in the car line at 7:15am, they just barely made it in time for the 8:00am race. We learned our lesson, next year we leave at 5:00am. Parents, if you're carrying your student to meets, you need to plan to arrive an hour early to account for warmups and potential traffic.
- Runners, eat breakfast, eat breakfast, eat breakfast. It's called "break-fast" because you are literally breaking your nighttime fast. Runners should eat at least a granola bar 2 hours before the race. We still had someone run the race on an empty stomach.
