As I've pointed out previously on this board, the two best 5K XC times of Grace's career were run by her last Fall, as a 10th grader, both on courses that she had previously run on in the 7th and/or 9th grades. So to the poster above who thinks she's gotten slower, you have to ignore the evidence.

Tinman is not burning her out like they did Mary Cain, he is laying a solid foundation for great success in her collegiate and possibly post-collegiate (pro) career.
