The question of the day on Sunday was, “who is CSU X?” With our new CSU X tank tops, CSU X athletes plus family members and coaches competed in the 2k/5k/10k Holdenwood Cross Country Race! We met up in the morning and did a joint course tour led by Coach Alex, just like we do on snow, however, we had to focus our minds on running tactics instead of skiing tactics (no tucking down hills, sadly). The weather was beautiful and quite warm for a late September weekend. The course had a lot of varying terrain, including uphills, downhills, flats, and of course CSU’s favorite, transitions. Since we had such a large group, there was always a CSU’er near by, pushing you to go faster. No wonder we had such great results! Racing with a team of 23 CSU’ers in addition to Dorothee (who took the photos and cheered us on) and other parents, there was a CSU’er around every corner. Nice work everyone! Here are all the results and photos!
