Favorite XC/TF memory to date:
XC – This one is easy … the County Championship of my sophomore year. It was my first year of cross country and I was oblivious to how chaotic things would be in a big race. I can still envision in my mind; one minute chatting with my friends, the next minute hearing “TAKE YOUR MARK” and finally a mob of girls sprinting to get out first. It was so much fun!!!
T/F – Running the mile my freshman year with my teammates. We all were pushing and encouraging each other throughout the race … running in a pack. Talking about it after and saying how much fun we just had and then realizing that we all got best times!!
What do you enjoy most about the sport of XC and/or TF: I love the fact that I feel like I can talk to my teammates about anything. It doesn’t matter if my issue is about the sport or my personal life, they are there to help me through anything.
