She has knee tendonitis. Hopefully she can come back for Western Regionals. This is a very disappointing year for Cal's cross country teams. There is no excuse for performing this poorly. Christine's best race was at Sac State. She got a bad cold coming back from Virginia, missed Wisco, then trained some, got knee tendonitis before Pac 12s. I think I'll have to go check out the Tamale place you've recommended. It's been a tough year for (most of) Cal athletics.
Just wanted to recommend a tamale place I've discovered in Oakland on 7th and Clay, across the street from the Superior court house (ironically). It's called La Borinquena, next door to the MexiCali Rose Restaurant. Great tamales you can buy by the dozen. Their website is tamalegirl.com and have been there for forty years.
