Wet and Muddy at Bob Firman!

After a mucky, slimy, wet start of the day we were able to get down to business. The atmosphere was great and the competition stiff. The ladies stole the show running 6 within 35 seconds and the boys also closed the gap considerably. With 4 weeks to go in the season there is still work to do and time to shave! Take care of yourselves and DO WORK! The DOJO and GLORY await!

This weekend we will be traveling to the Bob Firman Invitational, site of the 2008 Idaho State Cross Country Championships. There will be a ton of competition, including the #1 boys team in the nation!

The bus will leave at noon on Friday and we will be back in the valley late Saturday night. Remember that you need to bring a lunch and $ to cover dinner for Friday and we will take care of you on Saturday. For schedule of races, schools competing, maps, and other information click HERE.
