It has been a pretty remarkable season for us. Just last year at this time we were talking as a TEAM in the front hallway about things we could accomplish, and how good we could be if we really went for it. Part of that conversation was becoming a national class distance program. This season, we achieved that goal.
I am very proud of everything that was accomplished this year. Not just being a top 12 team nationally, but all of the work that was put in to have success at Leagues, State, NXR, and NXN. We have set ourselves up to be even better next year if we continue to stay committed, work hard, and run for each other. Great job this season!
Here are the results, photos, videos, articles, etc. from Portland.

Training Plans for December
Training plans for the month of December are currently being updated into Training Peaks for everyone. Please check your plan to know what you are running each day.
Winter Break Runs
A full list of winter break runs is available on the calendars page. We will meet at 10 a.m. on the days we are meeting to run. Please check Training Peaks to see how much you are running.
Track Winter Conditioning Registration
Please register for off-season winter track before the official start date on January 4th. We will meet 5 days a week during the winter, with opportunities to get together on Saturday's for long runs at some new locations near the metro area. The cost for the winter is $100 to participate, which will go to help compensate our assistant coaches for their time during the months of December, January, and February.

We also have the option to send athletes to the South Pasadena Tiger Invitational that same weekend (20 mins from the Arcadia Track) if they end up missing the cut into Arcadia. Here is preliminary info about the California trip.
