Manhattan Race comments



Track and Field Videos on Flotrack

Jake Riff- a very solid race- but just solid- you guys have to learn to get on stage and boogie- today we just ran- don’t sell yourself short- be great- today was good.

Dan Riff- similar to your brother- you have to learn to be bolder if you’re going to emerge as a top level guy- nonetheless I’m very happy with the way you and Jake are approaching your running.

Dan Sheldon- You got out in mid pack position- this haunted you for the rest of the race- you’re not a mid-pack runner- if you’re going to be our number 1 guy than you have to get out with the numero uneros.  Again- you had a very solid race- but if we’re going to make this season memorable we have to walk out to the other side.

Schoepfer- best race of the season- ignore the finish time and place- you attacked with aggression and fought hard- continue to do so!!!

Karthik- don’t pass up opportunities like this.

Glen- I’m so proud of your development- there’s no point in getting into the VIP room if you’re not ready to party.

Judson- great performance in a tough course!

Callahan-perhaps the best race of the day- you raced hard from the gun! Very tough!!!

Vinci- when did you get so good>?

George Hamilton-best XC race of your career- you’re a talented great guy- your improvement is directly related to your commitment.

Niv-solid race- you’re emerging as not only a very solid runner- but a good leader.

Soskind- you got out great and paid for it- so be it- you’ll race better next time- great work.

Abith- you may be the most improved runner on the team- period.

Prathik- your best XC race to date- all the work is beginning to pay off.

Albert-very solid race- how good can you get in the next 2 weeks?

Matt-you led us- very good race- you behaved great out there.

Schofield- you’re going to be a great runner.

Eddison-awesome job- more than anything you wanted to be here and had fun- be that guy every day.

Jeff-I think you were intimidated out there- don’t be – you’re good- be yourself- be good.

Caroline – Great effort, awesome start.  Dropped 10 seconds from last year.  Solid through the first 800, keeping the lead girl in your sight.  Fantastic finish, burying the competition behind you and never looking back.  Keep up the great work! 


Ingrid – Great race, great start, great finish.  Keep using your strength and speed but watch the middle of your race, stay forward and keep pushing.  Very proud of your efforts, keep it up!


Shelbs – Solid effort, you dropped 12 seconds from last year.  Don’t let go of Ingrid and bring May with you.  You guys are an awesome 2, 3, 4 punch.  Awesome leadership, keep it up!


May – Good race kiddo, but get up there with Shelby and Ingrid where you belong.  Believe in yourself and your fitness and get out from the start!


Xinran – Unbelievable!  You dropped just over 2 minutes from last year!  All the hard work and training is certainly paying off!  This is the Xinran we’ve been waiting to see.  Keep up the good work!


Lisa – Solid race, but don’t be afraid to push a little harder.  Watch your start, you got muddled up in the middle of the pack.  We look to you, Nicole, and Xinran to be the backbone of the team, so get up there where you belong!


Crossey – Good effort, you dropped 25 seconds from last year, way to go.  Be careful on the start, use your speed, get out where you belong.  Stay on your toes through the finish, don’t let yourself get stagnant.  Keep pushing with Lisa!


Nana – Great race despite the crazy start.  Way to use your speed to fly out in front.  Once you were there, you just held on!  You’re right there with Lisa and Nicole, keep pushing!


Cai Cai – Let’s refocus our efforts and find the strength and stamina that you have spent all summer building.  Don’t be afraid to push a little harder and get back up towards the front where you belong.  Awesome finish, passing 16 girls, but let’s try and stretch that same effort and attitude over the rest of the course.


Nora – Solid effort.  I’m proud of the progress you’ve made this year. 


Yvonne – Good racing, again despite the awful start.  Let’s work on getting more focused in the middle of the race, and hang on to Nora and the girls just in front of you.  


Donnelly – Rough start, but not really your fault.  We have to continue to work on the breathing difficulties, because Katie, you’ve got the tools, we just need to use them.  Don’t be afraid to push yourself!  


Sari – The start didn’t go as planned, but don’t give up heart.  Keep pushing onward, you’ve worked so hard to get this far.  Still another month to the season, so let’s make it count!


Millie – Great effort.  I’m so proud of the hard work you put in everyday.  Keep up the great attitude.
