I have taken weeks, a week off, days and a day off. I have also taken a day easy. I have spent more time in the trainer’s room than I have spent running. However, I am still standing. The support I get from the Luther Cross Country Team (LCXC) is so great words cannot describe it. The only way one can understand it is by being part of the team. LCXC is more than a team; LCXC is my family. I have 41 brothers (Oak and Sky North) 31 sisters. I have two fathers, Steve and Eric, and one mother, Yarrow.
I am still standing because of LCXC family. This is a family made of great people. People who will support you in everything you go through. People who will do whatever it takes to make sure that you have the best race. People who make you feel so at home and forget that you are on foreign soil. People who will always be there for you when you need them.
We hit the trails together; share laugher, farts and sometimes you will feel someone’s mucus on your face after he decides to blow his nose right in front of you. We do workouts together and race together as a team.
I am still standing because of the family behind me. I know they got my back covered; so do I.
