WMRT 2007 - Christian Thompson

Hello all. The race today was very tough. I started out conservative and then tried to pick people off. The downhills were very very steep. Although I usually do not do well on the downhills I did very very well on the hills. The race is an awesome experience. I ended up 17th overall and finished in 38:25. I was very happy that I did beat the top women Anna Pritrova. Both women teams did very very well. The jr women placed 2nd and the senior women won. The men had a much tougher day but it was still and awesome experience. Hopefully in 5 or 6 years I will be able to make the senior and kill myself on the 3 loop courses.

Sounds like you did VERY well, and had a great time. All of Candor (including the cows in Willseyville) are proud of you!

Hey Christian,

Great job over there. I was so glad that I was able to be there with you. Still can't believe that downhill and am so glad I didn't see it before you ran.

Keep working as hard as you do.

Go Buffs!

Thank you very much for all of the encouragement that people have been giving me. It keeps me going through the tough times which can be very low sometimes. I am looking forward to coming back during Christmas and seeing everybody. Thanks again for all of the encouragement.
