We are three weeks away from the start of the cross country season. Our athletes will be returning to campus ready to compete in our first race shortly into September. For most of our athletes it will be their return to cross country. And yet for others it will be their first time competing at the collegiate level.
What seemed like so long ago has rapidly crept up on us as coaches and athletes alike. It only seems like yesterday we were preparing to compete at our regional meet. Now almost 3 months later our athletes are ready to come back to campus and begin their journey within this 2021-22 season.
Our athletes might stumble along their way. Each path they are on will be filled with the proverbial twists and turns. However, success is essentially cumulative and progressive. So is failure. It is the result of what you do everyday. In May, 3 months seemed so far away. Now the season is staring directly into our faces.
So here’s to the “unofficial” start of the 2021-22 season.
