Great job, Kiza!

It's funny how we can do a really long race and a shorter race and yet the shorter one feels just as tough, lol.

I can photoshop the smile onto later photos for you! :)

It's really hard to be smiling when conditions are less than ideal... but you pushed your group through the race, and finished well, that's the important part!

Great job Kiza. It must feel so good to not only run a good race yourself, but also to see all of your clinic members do so well :)

Goal setting can be so tough, especially when you're dealing with a number of contributing factors (injuries, weather, footing, etc.). Sounds like you had a good race. Congrats!

Your clinic members were lucky to have you and James as leaders! Congratulations for the race, but also for helping your clinic member to reach a new milestone in their running.

Good run, Kiza. Set the plan and run it. Winter races are never easy to plan due to all the variables. Way to hang tough and finish strong!!

Great job Kiza!
I used to run. All the time.
Now? Notsomuch.
I'm still a runner, though.
