  • First, a huge congratulations to Sky Canaves! Sky is the first member of the team to be chosen to represent the United States at a world competition. In April, Sky will travel to Torino, Italy as part of the USATF national 24 hour race team to compete in the world 24 hour race championships!
  • We have several jackets at each size left for women (except XS). We’re very short on men’s jackets, but let me know if you need one and I’ll see what we have left.
  • We have singlets at the 14th Street Jackrabbit, but they are out of women’s smalls. We are replenishing those shortly.
  • If you have any questions about the team plans or training in general, our coaches have volunteered to do a Q&A. Please ask questions here and we will post their answers!  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1RgkRenQxQXnYsRd6YhW-GG8L6rTj4lQW7XO1ugmtZvo/viewform
