The top runners from across the country flocked to Bend, OR, home of our very own Oiselle Little Wing training group, to compete at the USATF Cross Country Championships. Both Megan Rolland and Collier Lawrence ran tough on the challenging Rivers Edge Golf Course and both secured a place on the podium.
Here's my view of the weekend:
The fans showed up with all the necessities: Picky Bars, cowbells, caffeine, and of course, a pirate flag.
Lauren and Collier got the party started with the Little Wing Warm Up.
Pre-race chats + starting line time.
Windy, hilly, twisty, turny. Time to fly.
Collier and Megan started out patient and trailed the lead pack.
5k into the 10k, Megan was running strong.
2k to go, finish in sight!
Fifth & sixth place…Oiselle gave ‘em hell.
Bend = brews on the podium.
Little Wing coach, Daniel Goetz, put on his Volée singlet and hit the men’s 10k. He wrapped up an awesome day, finishing 20th!
Good vibes only #inbend.
