Another great showing for our TEAM on Friday!!! We did an excellent job competing and in a lot of cases, stepping up a division. It's so important that you always be ready to get into a more competitive race when you are called up to do so. You never know when your time will come! I do know that we all prepare very well to compete in any race, and that we have a lot of athletes on our TEAM that are capable of extraordinary things! Our next big test is on Saturday at St. Vrain where we will face some of the top teams in the state that we have not competed against yet this year, and a few that we have (Monarch, Boulder, Peak to Peak, Palmer Ridge, Classical Academy, Denver East, Air Academy, etc.) We get to race 10 in the varsity race this weekend, and many of you will be called up to be in that race. We will also have a tough challenge ahead of us in the JV division where we get to race our entire team not competing varsity. It will be a HUGE race with lots of great competition. Lets put in the work we need to so this week that will carry us into October/November, but also focus on racing to our current potential on Saturday.
