Nicole Blood: Cross Country Season is Finally Here!

Thurdsay, September 3, 2009, 4:50 p.m.

Hello Duck fans!! Cross country season is finally here! I’m so excited to get things started here on Friday before the team heads up to preseason camp in Sunriver, Oregon. Friday’s meet is a little rust-buster for some of the women to run and get an idea of their fitness level after a summer of tempos and long runs. It’s not easy getting through some of the longer runs and hard workouts without a Duck pack! We ladies have been keeping in touch over the summer, though, and it sounds like everyone did their job building a strong base, staying healthy, and getting excited for the upcoming season. 

For me personally, this year is especially important because it’s my last. I know, I know, but no time for tears just yet because we have unfinished business! Fortunately, we’ve got a great group of women who are looking to do some damage. The returnees are hungry for some more trophies, and the newcomers are eager to contribute to our new tradition here at Oregon: success.

So come check us out, back in uniform on Friday at 6 p.m. at the Pre’s Trails Pre-View! Cross country 2009 has begun!
