The News

This weekend was all about cross Country. Foot Locker National Championships went as most people expected. Anna Rohrer dominated the girls’ race and finished in 17:13. Grant Fisher repeated as champion in the boys’ race and took the win in 15:03. I’ve mentioned it before and I’ll reiterate it today. Grant Fisher is the future of middle distance running in the United States – there is no doubt about it.

Notably, all 40 participants in the boys’ race were juniors or seniors. The girls’ race was a different story, as seven girls were either freshmen or sophomores. In fact, the race included two freshmen from Montana – Annie Hill (8th overall) and Bryn Morley (26th overall). Keep an eye on them in the future!

USATF Club XC Championships were also this weekend. Don’t be fooled by the “club” moniker. The races included a slew of elites from across the country. Laura Thweatt won the women’s race (6k) in 19:14.41. Ryan Hill took the men’s race (10k) in 29:07.03.

Twelve women ran under 20 minutes in the 6k race and twenty men ran under 30 minutes in the 10k race.

My Upcoming Races

Registration for the CNY Springtime 10k opens today! It’s only $15 (plus a $2.50 service fee). There aren’t many races left at that price!

My Training

It was an “off” week. I only managed 35 miles and I wasn’t feeling very well. Winter is here and the sun hasn’t been out in ages – I don’t think it’s done much for my motivation. Hopefully, this will be a better week.

Keep Running!

    Club XC was insane! As far as numbers go, the deepest XC field in any race this year in the US. An utterly humbling experience for me, despite running at PR pace and still one of the most fun races I’ve been to yet.
