In about 12 hours, the CS campus will be covered with over 1000 runners, coaches, and their supporters. As we kick off the XC season in Maryland, I'm really excited to have all of WashCo there as we will all return in October for the county championships. The first meet is always like a reunion and a renewal rolled into one. Some of the local coaches are some of my favorite people in the world and I love chatting with them, cheering with them, and learning from them. I love the guts and dedication that is witnessed as these young people pour their energy and emotion into the three miles. I love watching parents chase their child around the course, unlike any other sport, you have to be in shape just to cheer! On the Eve of XC Season, I'm filled with joy and hope waiting for the morning to get here. See you guys on the course. It's a hill, get over it!
