Ah. The group was mainly my team. We are so close and so bonded. I did branch out as well, and I enjoyed running with new people my age.
Humboldt State University
Sara, Concord CA

I ran with two of my teammates for most of the week, but we were often joined by a counselor or another group. Having new people to run with made the runs fun and interesting.
