It was a wonderful experience for the New Canaan Running Club members to learn how to stay mentally focused for three events in three hours, participate in a multi-event relay meet, and enjoy camaraderie with their teammates. Most importantly, these kids had fun! A big thank you to Coaches Alex and Kevin Portanova who prepared these kids well.
