What a day, what a day at IMAZ this year! The  forecast called for 20 percent chance of showers and a high of 72 degrees. . . . So, yeah, that prediction was SLIGHTLY off the mark, but our athletes were troopers in the all-day, all-night rain. Twenty-one started and nineteen crossed the finish line. Most importantly, all twenty-one gave their best efforts on the day. So proud of all of you!
