Where we’ve been…where are we going? 47 PBs

The (not so) little group that I coach is, for the most part, taking a little break now, before resuming training with what should be a fantastically Lydiard-esque build phase full of miles, hills, and dreams. In the meantime, I thought I’d go back over the year, and report what each runner has accomplished in this track season that has, for some, extended from January all the way to July. If I’ve missed some performances, let me know, I’ll put them in.

47 PBs in all. That means you guys are doing it right. Way to go.
