Got up dreading the treadmill, but saw Bre's comment just in time, so I called her up and she and her dad picked me up from the hotel to run with them and the East high XC team. We went on fun trail run, easy on the way out 8:36/mi avg, and 5x1 minute fartleks on the way back. It was pretty chilly out (thank goodness for Breanna's long sleeve shirt!), sprinkling rain and absolutely beautiful on the trail. The trees surrounding the trail were in full Fall color and it was perfectly damp- not dusty at all, but no slippage either. Great run, thanks Bre for inviting me and thanks Bill for the bagels and hot cocoa after! (Alchemy 219.2)

I asked my husband who he knows on the blog and he said you are insanely fast. I read through your blog and am impressed, nice running! Good luck at State!

Go for it Ruthie at state. Leave nothing on the field of battle. Pick some parts on the course that you feel you can kick and punch it up a notch. You seem to run better in the lead. Stay close to the first runner. and pick a spot to take it to another gear. No matter what happens I know you will give it your all.
