We had some GREAT improvements this meet, and I am excited to see where they go from here.
In the 4X800, I was impressed by Jazzman's gutsy lead-leg. Running a great split of 2:40, she looked poised and powerful for each lap. Ana also ran a great time of 2:37. Joseline and Halie looked strong, too, which helped us improve our overall time: 11:03. I know we will dip under the 11-mark with some more speed work and confidence. Olivia, Lydia, Annabelle, Daysha, Shayla and Sam all ran season PRs for their relays, too. Although their times are dropping, I am confident that they each have more to give in this race.
Since Mundelein did not have any 3200 runners, Peyton and Karolina raced each other (at many points with in-sync strides) in order to earn 8 valuable points for our team. The times were solid and I know that the fitness they gained will be invaluable!
The open 800 provided an opportunity for Liana, Jocelyne and Olivia to set season PRs of 2:51, 3:07 and 3:22 respectively. Great work, ladies! :)
The 1600 was also host to several PRs: Joseline's season PR of 6:33, Karyn's lifetime PR of 6:44, Lydia's PR of 7:16, Shayla's lifetime PR of 7:36, Daysha's lifetime PR of 8:21, Annabelle's lifetime PR of 8:31, and Sam's lifetime PR of 8:54. :)
Overall, I was impressed by the vast improvements. Some great weather really makes a difference! Let's keep moving toward our goals for the season.
