I strongly recommend watching the links below. They feature runners from Capo and Trabuco discussing their races at the recent cluster meet. I'd like you to focus on the discussion of their racing, training, and teamwork. These ladies believe in themselves and are willing to "go to the well" for their teammates and coaches.
I think it will also provide motivation, as we work through the tough training over the next few weeks, to know that your competition is doing the same.
