a successful weekend after all

wednesday

4 miles around the neighborhood in cold rain/snow mix, was feeling under the weather so cut the run short to get inside and have some hot tea and warm up.  But my spirits were because…

The team results are in from the National Club XC Championships, and we had a successful weekend after all.  Roadkill Racing came in a strong 14th overall out of 39 masters teams, and was the top men’s masters team from New York state!

Cross country at its core is as much a team event as it is individualistic.  The nice thing about this is you get two shots at success, through the team and through your individual performance.  While I didn’t run well, the team as a whole made a mark nationally; and looking at it, even if I had run well, we probably wouldn’t have finished any higher this year.
