Day 2 of Ellie Hall's NXN Nationals Experience

(by Ellie Hall)


On Friday we woke up around 7:30 to eat breakfast before heading to the course to go on a run. Ater arriving to Glendoveer Golf Course, the athletes were shown the 'athlete village' where we stay at on race day to do drills, roll outs, spike change, etc. The athletes village was really nice! After the course run, we ate lunch on the bus, showered and prepared to head back to Nike Headquarters. At headquarters, the athletes chilled in the athlete lounge until it was time for the Q&A with the professional athletes! It was really cool to have questions answered by them. The athletes that participated in the Q&A were, Shalane Flanagan, Courtney Frerichs, Clayton Murphy, Matthew Centrowitz, along with a couple of others. Once they the Q&A  was over, the athletes grabbed dinner and headed back to the hotel to rest before the big day.
