Nebo Invitational

Both boys and girls raced well on Friday. The course was a 3.1 miles. The only other race that has been a true 5k was Pre Region. Comparing those, many of you have dropped times considerably since that race. Congrats! Hard work pays off!!

Boys had a chance to step up and see what it was like racing at a higher level and rose to the challenge. There are a few who could have gotten in the top ten in the race they normally race. Being the best requires competing against the best! Way to work hard and step up!!

Girls also raced well. A lot reported on the race being long mentally. Mia Hamm said “The vision of a champion is bent over, drenched in sweat, at the point of exhaustion, when nobody else is looking.” In order to be a champion, one must be able to challenge herself. Everyone in that race experience the same race, but it is how each individual reacts to it determines the champion. I saw each girl mentally tougher than the beginning of the year. Good job girls!!
