Cross week of 10-2

    It was great to see the kids respond to cool weather as more than 50 kids set PR’s or SB’s yesterday at Otsego! Here is what’s happening this week:
    Monday is our typical yoga day and tomorrow is no exception. However, we will meet 30 minutes later, at 7:30. Those who come will run our usual pre-race easy run and then do yoga at 3:30. Those who can’t make our morning run, will run at our normal practice time. 
    Tuesday brings our second OK Gold jamboree. The race will be at Johnson Park. Girls run at 4:45 and boys at 5:15. The team and coaches are not very familiar with this course as we have not run here in several years. There will be transportation both directions. 
    On Saturday we travel to Portage West Middle School for the Portage Invite. This large meet is very competitive for our division as most of the ranked teams will collide 4 weeks out from the final. We will have a bus both to Portage and back. We will leave at 10:15 from school. The race times are as follows:
    Girls Varsity 1:00
    Boys Varsity 2:00
    Girls JV 3:00
    Boys JV 4:00
    Bus home 5:30
Please leave plenty of time to get into this busy meet.
