While Saturday was one of those days where you just want to hibernate all day, it must have also been a great day for running.

Who wouldn’t think that overcast skies, a cool breeze and a constant cold drizzle falling during the whole meet at Parkside would be awesome?

Well, the MSJHS cross country runners stepped up to the conditions of the muddy course and did not let the weather conditions stand in their way.   As a team, the Bulldogs ran extremely well, with both teams finishing 9th out of the 49 teams represented.  A lot of the runners even hit some personal record times.
