The rising senior from Ann Arbor Pioneer had an outstanding junior year, as he claimed the MSHAA State Championship LP - 1 victory and followed that up with a twelfth place finish at the Foot Locker Midwest Regional in Wisconsin.
Foster will begin the XC campaign full of confidence after securing the 2 Mile race win at New Balance Nationals Outdoor in June by virtue of his 8:59.46 performance. He also earned a runner-up finish in the 1 Mile at the Brooks PR Invitational and a first place effort in the 3200 at the MHSAA State Championship LP - 1 during his stellar track season.

I ran to practice today and then did another relaxed run at about 6:45 pace. Total run was 11 miles.

Today we had two practices. In the morning, I did 8x800m on the track with 400m running rest. I started out pretty easy and worked my way down from 2:29's and finished it up with a 2:15. The second practice was an easy run on our cross country course. Total for the day was 13.2 miles.

I ran to practice again today and then did a run with the team at about 7 min pace. Total run was 9.31 miles.
Saturday - 8/11:
I'm in Northern Michigan, so today I had a fun run while my cousins biked along with me. I dropped the pace down to 5:55 and then finished up the run with a couple of miles in the woods. My average pace was 6:15. Total run was 8 miles.
Sunday - 8/12:
