Hey gang! I was in Kingston this weekend for the Canadian Cross Country Championships! Here's the recap:
Weather: 2c with a feels like temp of -6c due to 35km winds (gusts up to 50km). Slightly Icy terrain for the Masters but we chopped it up well enough to make it more reasonable for the Seniors, U20 and U18 groups. Those who have run the Fort Henry course have confirmed its reputation for being tough. As my first XC race, I can confirm that it is distinctly different from a road race.
The nice thing about the Masters event is that anyone can sign up but only if your ego can handle finishing last in your age group. I was 37th of 38th....yep it was humbling. It's like playing pick up hockey with a bunch of ex NHLers.
The highlight of the race was Brogan MacDougall who finished the season undefeated! She was this year's OUA champion, U Sports champion, U Sports rookie of the year and U Sports athlete of the year. She's an Engineering student at Queen's.

Hey JoJo! Actually I'm remiss for not getting in touch when I came to town. Stay tuned though, I'll connect with you on LinkedIn if my daughter chooses Queens for next September. If so, I'll be in town more often. However, you'll have to buy coffee because I'll be broke!
It's never too early to taper or to carbo load.
