2011 Junior Olympic Cross-Country Championships

Last weekend Anna participated in the 2011 USATF Junior Olympic Cross-Country Championships in South Carolina. Steve and Anna traveled to Myrtle Beach and spent three nights there. This event was a culmination of 3-4 workouts a week, several cross-country meets, and various awards and achievements along the way during the season. She placed 34th out of 204 girls in her age bracket after running the 1.8 mile course in 11:58 (she ran the first mile in 6:20), and her team won the national championship. It is amazing to think Anna competed against girls from all around the country, who also went through a major process to qualify for this run. Steve and Anna had a memorable time, and we are so proud of our girl!
