I can't think of one negative thing from this running season. Yeah, Elena ran with an injury, but I watched her overcome the pain, and push herself to reach personal goals.
I really didn't know what to expect of the sport, but I found it to be the most personally supportive group she's been involved in. The coach knew when to push her and when to tell her to take an easier run. He saw her strengths and weaknesses and worked with them.
I'm going to miss Sat. morning meets.
