2nd Day Kansas Relays

Great day, other than the wind, the weather was fantastic for a day at the track.  Some great performances by our athletes, however, not all achieved their best times at this meet.

I was able to begin the day with a very good run with Curtis Vais and one of our women runners , Anna Buenneke.  Anna was disappointed with her 10K run last night but was able to humor two old coaches by staying at their pace today.  We explored some trails along the river and even had some sort of obstacle course at times because the trail reduced to basically a deer path through the river bottom.  We changed direction in order to find better running and hooked up with a bike trail on the opposite side of the river.  This led us to a mountain bike course and it was a real hoot to run the ups and downs and curves of this trail.   I was happy to not have to ask for any walking breaks and we put in an hour and 5 minutes of running!  I'll be able to add some photos when I get back to my home computer.

Tomorrow will be the final day for the relays and then we have the 6 hour drive home.

7.5 miles running and an additional 2 miles hiking later in the day.
