I earned merit roll during my 2013 cross country season and I also ran under 30 minutes in the 8k.
Were there any obstacles you had to overcome as an athlete or in life?
I suffered a foot stress fracture my sophomore year at LCCC, which took up most of my season. I was able to recover and broke personal records in the 5k and 1600 the next year.

Take advantage of it because it doesn’t last forever. You must manage how much you push yourself in order to stay healthy throughout the season.
