Dear Sunset Community,
I hope that this message finds you safe and well.
The OSAA executive board has released an update on the 2020-2021 sports calendar. It includes some date shifts for both track and cross country. You can see the post here: https://osaa.org/docs/osaainfo/December7Release.pdf.
Additional comments from the OSAA about the release can be found in their media publication: https://www.osaa.org/today/article/1911/view?title=OSAA+moves+back+start+to+February%2C+keeps+three-season+plan
We are processing this information through the same lens that we have throughout the last several months: the targets will continue to move and we must each do all that we can to control the spread of the virus.
I have started running small, in-person meetings with members of the distance running group. We are experimenting with what we can do with an hour and how we can stay very COVID-safe in a training environment. I sincerely believe that it may be the safest thing that I do outside of my house (safer than a grocery store, gas station, post office, doctor's office, or any other place I go during the pandemic). We are starting small and are looking for ways to increase participation and access after the Winter Break. If you are interested in participating, please send me an email and I will stay in touch as we find safe and meaningful ways to meet.
PS: Wear a mask!
