Posted: Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009 at 6:36 am

The Pella Christian Cross Country teams are in the midst of an eight-day break between meets and are readying for their next competition on Thursday. Eagles’ Cross Country Coach Jocilyn Meinders says the time away from competition has given her a chance to emphasize race strategy, pacing, and form; as well as continue to help the team’s newer runners better understand some of the mental aspects of the sport. Meinders adds that the emphasis on strategy also helps the more experienced runners to concentrate on their own strategies and challenges them to find ways to reach their goals. Pella Christian runs at PCM on Thursday.
