LoveCrossCountry is on a distinguished road
The Thomas Worthington girls varsity team has begun the taper. Basically that means that they won't be lifting two mornings a week anymore and won't be running an extra morning run two mornings a week either.

I think a taper is good IF the athletes were running enough to warrant a taper. If a kid is running 3-5 miles a day, then tapering isn't going to help them. The Thomas Worthington girls run up to 12 miles a day (that would be their big day each week), so paring that down a little bit will help them be fresher on the line and perhaps keep the nagging little aches and pains at bay.
