On the blistering hot days of August, a special group of girls wake up early to put on their running shoes and hit the road. Boy did all of these miles pay off! The Merion Mercy Cross Country team recently competed in the PennCrest invitational. The merion team placed 3rd in the varsity race and every girl ran her best time of the year!  I was interested as to what was going through these athletes’ minds while they participated. Bethey Gallagher (’17) notes that doing a course walk before the race helped get associated with what was to come in the race. On the infamous hills, Bethey pushed through the pain because she knew it would help in the end.  Bethey states that, “The encouragement from [her] teammates always motivates [her] to run faster.” Annie Hughes shared that all of the miles the team put in during pre-season had a major influence on the outstanding performance. Annie said,“It’s remarkable to see all of our hard work payoff.”

Congratulations Girls!
