Grote Prijs Report
Christopher and I headed over to the Grote Prijs yesterday. One of the oldest, most well established events on our local calendar. Held at Herman Lard Park in Shawnee which is a good venue for a cross race. I still remember helping get the ole Grote Prijs started years ago with Mark Thomas. I will have to ask him what year that was. Being held in late December or early January every year you never know what kind of weather you can get. Several years ago we had some snow as you can see below.
Christopher made the move up from Juniors to the Men's Cat 4 division. He got off to a great start and was toward the front of the field on Sunday. I told him not to go out so hard that he blew up after the first lap. I wanted him to build on each lap and actually get stronger.
