Both kids, parents, and coaches will be nervous and excited for the start of the season and we will all just need to be patient, kind, and willing to work together. I’m fully intending to have a great time and watch a lot of kids run some great races.

Best of luck with your season and I look forward to seeing all of you on the 3rd.
