The Webster Groves invitational at Blackburn park, was the first XC race of the 2019 season, and was a great start to the monumental season. The varsity race was first and I got to watch my guys go out with a bang and get first place as a team with all 7 guys getting a medal. Then the JV race arrived which I knew was going to be hard since it’s Blackburn, but since I hadn’t raced yet in the season there was no concept of what time to run.
But as we got to the final stretch there was a little more juice to give, leading to me giving one last kick ending me a spot in second place. After the final race of the day we headed into the awards ceremony and after collecting the hardware, the team got some wacky/fun pictures.
