Fall Cross Country training weather off to beautiful start!


practicing race starts-uphill

Beautiful weather (so far :))and lots of hard work!

Post cross country workout comment (with a smile on her face though): “I learned what it felt like to die,” said Emma D (of a recent workout with Coach Sean). Was it the hill? You’ll have to ask her.

Looks like it’s fun too tho!
