"Obviously it'll be a big weekend for the distance squad, so I'm looking forward to seeing what they can do. Our distance coaches have these guys revved up and ready to roll, so we expect some big results. We got off to a great start last week, so for our team overall, we're looking to continue to build and hoping for some good weather this weekend."
