Thank you everyone who came out for the Cloud Classic Time Trials! It was fun to see everyone and thank you for practicing social distancing and wearing masks. As a reminder, we are now competing against other teams in a virtual race where we log each athlete's times. We have one more time trial at the end of May and then a Championship on June 6th. This week we competed against the Chico Striders who had a very good showing of almost 20 athletes!
Below I've listed every Hawk that competed and their results:
Team, I am so proud of your effort and determination. Let's keep these workouts going and make sure we are appreciating all three T's: Talent, Training, and Toughness. I had a good talk with one of our athletes on Saturday about how important it is practice our Toughness during these times. We don't have our group practices three times a week or track meets. This is the opportunity to practice mental toughness. Train when everyone else is playing video games. That's what will get you ahead. Not just for the Cloud Classic Series, but for next Cross Country Season and for life as well.
Parents, as always, thank you so much for being a part of your athlete's journey and part of the fabric that makes up the Delta Hawks. I am thrilled to be coaching our kids. I'm busy these days, but I can honestly say the Hawks is one of my greatest joys outside of my family. Thank you for allowing me to coach during this awkward season. Let's get through it together, enjoy a break, and then tackle Cross Country in the Fall.
PS - The Week's workouts coming tomorrow, Monday is a Rest Day as usual.
