The Colorado High School State Track and Field Championships are being held this weekend (May 16-18) at Jeffco Stadium in Lakewood. The meet will be streamed live on Colorado MileSplit

We will be cheering on Fairview senior Marlena Preigh, who has been training with us for (I think) all four years of her high school track career. It's been our privilege to have been included on her team and we are excited to see how her career unfolds as she moves on to University of Washington this fall.

We are super excited to what Marlena uncorks in her events this weekend. She is the defending 5A 800 meter State Champion, currently ranked 1st in the state and 2nd in the country among seniors. She also has the 2nd fastest 1600 in Colorado this year.

A kettlebell "flow" I learned from an Oregon Alum. Think I will call them the Duck Circuit.

Last night was her last lifting workout before State. I took a few photos. The hay is in the barn, as they say, and so these final workouts have been about keeping the nervous system tuned up. Or as Marlena puts it,"waking my muscles up."
