The fall cross country season will see 560,000 high school boys and girls racing across 50 states, with Alaska having the first state meet in early October. As we hit the second week of September, most cross country runners are getting their racing legs, and there are 2 races a week. A small meet during the week, and an invitational on the weekend!
Good luck this weekend. Remember to get out well, and focus on a part of the race that you see needs improvement.
