Nationals from the lens of Lindsay Owen

This past fall I had the honor of guiding this group of talented young ladies into the USATF XC Junior Olympic series of three races.  This being my first year on the circuit, I really had no idea what to expect.  What transpired over the past two months has been nothing short of amazing!  Qualifying for and running at Nationals was an experience these kids, their families, and I will remember for a very long time.  We were blessed to have a videographer join us on the trip (Lindsay, a sister of one of the) who put this video together, highlighting the races, including the final race of the year in Tallahassee, Florida.  These girls worked so hard over the last 7-18 months, it's truly inspiring.  Enjoy the video!
