We have arrived in Greeley, Co and have been welcomed with a wonderful manure scent and a very muddy, snowy course. We ran the course just about a couple hours ago, and it was one of the muddiest courses I have ever been on. That said, still nothing compared to NTN 2005.
It is clear that tomorrow won’t be a day of setting PRs. This meet, being the Big Sky Conference Championships, is all about winning. NAU has won back to back titles for the men, and tomorrow the streak should continue. With that said, racing in conditions like these always level the playing field. As a team, we have to make sure we don’t take anything for granted. We haven’t won anything yet.
The championship season starts tomorrow. Everything counts now.
Race goes off at 10AM. I should have some updates on Twitter after cooling down (maybe by noon?).
