What a Day. What a season. Today was a huge success and we even got onto the track! It was great to see toughness out of each athlete on the track. I AM SO PROUD OF YOU! Parents, please share comments with your athlete. Here are the results:
NAME: 1600m Time / 800m Time; Cloud Classic Placings; Comments
JAKE: 5:54/2:44; 1st in AG, 2nd overall in 1600, Last race as a Delta Hawk but not the last race on that track. I can't wait to cheer Jake on in Cross Country and next Track Season.
MATTHEW: 5:42/2:41; 1st in AG & 1st overall for 1600. 1st in AG and 3rd overall for 800m. Another tough race. No PR's today, but ran but ran his PR from two weeks ago in the 1600. Matthew is learning how to kick.
COHEN: 6:37/3:18; 1st in AG in 1600 & 800. WOW!!! What a race today! Cohen broke out and ran 15 sec PR in the 1600m and a tied his PR in the 800m. More importantly, he RACED.
JON: 6:51/3:11; 2nd in AG for 800 & 1600. Ultimate consistency. Tied his PR in the 1600. 1 Sec PR in the 800m. Great to see Jon's toughness with a gritty finish in both races!
ADELINE: 6:31/3:03; 1st in AG for 800 & 1600. 1st overall female in 1600, 2nd overall Female in 800. 2 Sec PR in 1600 and 2 Sec PR in the 800. What a great and tough race as well!
ABIGALE: 7:46/3:33; 2nd in AG in 800 & 1600. Toughness was seen on Abigale all morning and so was her smile. No PRs today, and that's OK.
SONIA: 7:15/3:20; 1st in AG in 800 & 1600. Coach Phil bumped Sonia up to the fast group because she earned it. After monster PRs in the last two time trials and killer workouts, It was time to set up another challenge. What I learned today is that Sonia is a "Front Runner" just like Coach Phil was. No monster PRs this time, but a 1 second PR in the 800.
NATALIE: 6:47/3:13. 1st in AG in 800 & 1600. We saw some amazing racing out of Natalie today. That look of determination!! Confident resilience. Natalie earned a 3 sec PR in the 1600 and a 7 sec PR in the 800. That's HUGE!
KELINE: 7:54/3:52; 1st in AG in 800 & 1600. WHAAAAAAA! You may not have known it, but Keilen got the MONSTOR PR AWARD today. HE BROKE 8 MINUTES!!! His last 1600 was a 9:08 and the best time I have on record is 8:41. That's a 47 second PR today! I can't wait what XC has in store for him. On top of that he bolted out with a 19 second PR in the 800! So proud of you, Keilen!
Thank you parents and athletes for making the most of this crazy season. We finished what we started and I can't wait to see what is in store next season.
We've been add it for 19 weeks now and what a season it has been! Our first season without coach Dusty. My first season as a head coach ever. It has been a tough season, hasn't it. It didn't go as planned and yet, we've adapted and pivoted and have continued to choose to run. Thank you everyone who kept with it. I know it's hard. For those who have opted out, there is no shame in that at all. We miss you and look forward to seeing you in Cross Country season however modified that may be. :)
With that, here is the last week of workouts. It's a little lighter as we are working toward the Cloud Championships on Saturday.
TUESDAY: Speed Workout - HYDRATE
Thursday: On Your Own
Friday: On your Own, 2-3 easy miles.
Saturday: Cloud Championships.
It's been an honor to Coach our kids this season. Thank you so much for all your patience and support this season, parents. This really is an amazing community.
