- It was a cold and rainy day at Michigan International Speedway, but a successful one for Phoebe and G-A Cross Country. On a course that was full of puddles and soggy terrain, Phoebe finished ahead of one-third of all runners in the race. Although she did not set a new personal record (I can't imagine many runners did), she did gain valuable experience running on our sport's biggest stage. She was the 35th fastest freshman and finished 159th overall. Thanks to the others who came to cheer her on. Hopefully this is the beginning of a new fall tradition for G-AXC. Way to go Phoebe!
