I was proud of the performance, behavior, attitude and familyness of our team this weekend at Griak. I wish we could take everyone along. It is a huge meet with the first race starting at 9’AM and the last race at 4:30 PM.
It is a 5K race instead of the usual 4K. It was a very warm and humid day.
But that is what makes Griak…..Griak.
A special thanks to Beth Bakros for helping out by driving and organizing the food details.
Nice work ladies!!!!
