Hello Striders!
Congrats to:

  • Jack Newbold setting a new PR at the PAL XC race this past weekend!
  • Congrats to all of the PAL Runners! According to Tom, Nashua PAL Striders advanced more runners on to the regionals than all but two clubs in our association had signed up in total. Proving once again that we are the strongest club in the association and one of the strongest in the country! Great work!!

If you or anyone you know has run a PR or had a significant accomplishment, please let me know!
