Our juniors are some tough cookies. One took the Hill Climb State Championships after returning from Nationals and Anna is heading to Track Nationals! Keep up with these tough ladies who are mature beyond their years on our blog. We couldn’t be more proud. Here’s Jenny‘s race report on the ominous Mt. Evans.
Last weekend I raced the Mt. Evans Hill Climb State Championships in the junior women 15-16 category. The junior race started at Echo Lake, at an altitude 10,600 ft. I have raced this Hill Climb two times before, winning in 2012 and breaking the previous record. Going into the race I was pretty confident but also nervous because I assumed one of my main competitors was probably going to do the race as well. Since I couldn’t find the list of people who had signed up for the race I had no idea how many people would show up. But once I got to the race and got my number I realized I was, yet again, the only one in my category. All I had to do now was finish the race and I would be a State Champion!
