am: 2.25 miles around the cross country course at the Park City Invitational.
Went to the race anticipating a showdown with #36 in the nation Park City and my Alta girls. Everything went pretty much as I had hoped - all my girls ran great with the exception of my #1 runner, Sierra Knapp, who rolled her ankle badly at the 1/4 mile mark and hobbled the entire way finishing as our #5 runner. She ran a really courageous race, and a mere freshman. I figure it cost us about 17 points. Park City got us 71-81. Today's race was a hilly 3 miles at 7000 feet! My #1 girl, Carolyn Webber finished 4th overall in 19:13.
I guarantee anybody that if you lined my girls up with the supposed national top 50 according to ESPN Rise that they would finish nowhere near 50th.
pm: 10 miles in 1:13:55 (7:23) around Sugarhouse.
