Arleth Subiria doesn’t describe herself as a competitor, which is in direct opposition of her coach’s point of view. While she may not be concerned with the results of those around her, the Temple senior wages an internal battle during every 5-kilometer cross country race, forcing her to remain consistent in her strides in a quest to get closer to that elusive 20-minute mark.

“My main goal coming into the year was to break 20,” said Subiria, a four-year varsity runner. “I’ve done a good job of remaining consistent and finishing in the 21-minute times, but I’m still working for a sub-20 time.”

The 20-minute mark not only is a chance to accomplish yet another goal for Subiria. It’s also an opportunity to show the rest of the high school cross country world the type of runner she is.

“Hitting that 20-minute mark, that’s not easy at all,” Temple coach David Melvin said. “That’s really the point that separates the good and the elite runners. Breaking 20 minutes puts you in that next echelon as far as being an elite runner.”
