Meet Recap

Unofficially, we are the only team to post results, so we claim first place with a perfect team score of 15, even though it was actually 185. We’ll just nudge that 8 out of the way so we can focus on how well our racers did.

You know how during the Olympic swimming they show the world record pace line and someone either just chasing it or beating it and you get excited for them, you’re cheering them on and your muscles start twitching, willing the racer to keep at it? It’s fun stuff, but what’s even more fun is watching real-time as runner after runner on your team are so far ahead of their record time that the thing isn’t even on the screen with them (metaphorically speaking). We had one of those days. Again. Superlatives coming.

Officially, we kicked it up another notch with 6 of our girls earning PRs (personal records), with some RIDICULOUS time drops – worthy of an actual mic drop. Collectively, our Lady Tigers beat their previous records by 11:10! Who does that? Here is the list of top improve-inators:
Alex Habicht discovered a new gear that helped her cruise in 2:54 ahead of her previous best time.
Maya Cornaby just crushed her PR that she set last season, and beat this year’s season record by 1:45.
Claire Peterson had fire coming from her shoes as she sprinted past other runners as if they were standing still, 1:33 faster than last week’s PR.
Lindsey Trantham had two great miles to finish her race to best her PR by 1:33, while Lindsey Harvell showed off as she surpassed her personal best by 1:31.
To round off the great improvements is Gillian Parzych, doing really well with a fast paced 1:30 off anything shes done previously. Really impressive racing girls.

Meet Recap

I bribe my runners. I don’t need to, but it’s fun, and they don’t act entitled, so I’ll keep doing it. In fact, they’d be spoiled if I implemented half of the ideas that come into my head.
My logic is pretty simple. If you enjoy something, you work harder at it. You get better at what you’re doing, which is rewarding (intrinsically), and then that spills into other things going on in your life. Like school work, and relationships, and getting better at being happy. So yes, I will continue to offer bribes that lead to happiness. Why wouldn’t I?
(Please excuse this nerd tangent, I’ll talk about the meet results in a sec.) I’m in the middle of designing a new cross country tee shirt and I wanted to know where the arrow in the logo comes from. I learned a bunch about the history of the sport, which dates back about 200 years ago when the game of Hare and Hounds was conceived. A group of runners (the Hares) would start out running, periodically dropping bits of paper that acted as the “scent”. After 10 minutes or so, another group of runners (the Hounds) would give chase, following the paper scent until the chase ended in the Hares finding safety, or being caught by the Hounds. These “hunts” would last for hours and miles and would not follow a determined course – they were literally cross country. Open fields, streams, fences, forests. Everything was fair game. These “Hunts” would take place in urban areas as well, but in place of paper, the Hares would use chalk or charcoal to draw arrows of where they ran and the Hounds had to follow. Hares and Hounds alike had so much fun that the game spread, clubs were formed, competitions organized, and it made it to the colleges and universities of the time. The sport continued to grow, going from England to the rest of the world. Eventually the courses, finish lines, and distances became more standardized, as well as team sizes and so forth. Of interest is that because courses can vary so much in difficulty, there aren’t any official world records for cross country. But, the feeling of hunting or being hunted is still palpable at the start and finish lines.

One indicator that my runners are enjoying themselves is that they are getting better. This week, Slader Beyer set a new PR by :53 seconds, and Kaden Olmstead came in :47 seconds under his previous meet – another steady and substantial improvement.
Ethan Sill also had a good race, crossing the finish line over his PR, sprinting to the end in his funky socks. (Not funky as in smell, but in looks. I have no personal experience in the former.)
William Kidder continues to anchor the team, coming in just a bit over his PR time.
Shameless recruiting to follow…
If you’re a boy, you’d be crazy to not join the Cross Country team and be teammates with a bunch of talented, funny, and bright young ladies and men. The girls out number the boys 2:1. Just sayin. We got room for a couple more boys if you think you can handle the funnest sport at school.
Also, on Monday, the day before the meet, our Shelby runners were introduced to their new racing uniforms. They look great, but I you have to catch glimpses of them when the boys (and girls) are standing poised with anticipation before the starting gun goes off, because after that, they turn into a blur. Like The Flash. Except not red/yellow… more like blackish. So does that make them like the Reverse Flash? I dunno… I’m a bit behind on my Flash binging… been too busy learning about rabbits, dogs, and the symbolism of the arrow.

Meet Recap

Wow. 7 of our Lady Tigers set new PRs (personal record) during the second of four Western Michigan Conference showdowns. To borrow from some metaphors from other sports, this is like scoring 7 touchdowns, or hitting 7 home runs, or 7 pins, 7 perfect aces, etc… you get the picture. It’s a pretty big deal – especially when you look at by HOW MUCH these girls improved over their last best times – 9:19 as a team.
I have to brag a bit on their behalf.
Jill Mitteer came in 2:34 faster than her previous best time.
Maddie Hawk, killed her old PR by 2:25.
Lindsey Harvell, bested hers by 1:55.
Alex Habicht, improved by 1:40.
Gillian Parzych, came in 1:07 faster than she ever has before.
And it goes on…
Devan Yeager, raced :46 faster, and second on the team
Claire Peterson, finished 0:10, and fourth on the team
Maya Cornaby, was just :06 shy of setting a new PR, but continued her streak of finishing first on the team.
Lindsey Trantham improved her time from last race by :42, but missed her PR by about :21, as she continues to battle back from a lingering cold.
Marah Olmstead had a huge improvement last week of 1:25 faster than her previous PR and continues her steady improvement.
Great job, Ladies. You make me smile just thinking about your races.
Grit is a subject that I am currently fascinated with. There’s a TED talk by educational psychologist, Angela Lee Duckwork, introducing the importance and power of grit. If you’ve never watched it, take the 6 minutes to do it, joining the other 12 million viewers who also thought it was a good idea. Or go run a 6 minute mile. Your choice. https://www.ted.com/talks/angela_lee_duckworth_grit_the_power_of_passion_and_perseverance/up-next
