Hello Runners, We hope you're having a great summer!
Practice will begin promptly, at 3pm and end at 4pm. We will do 15 minutes of strength training and 30 minutes of running every day. We want everyone to run in the meets. However, you will need to be able to complete 1 mile without stopping to walk. Two miles need to be completed in 24 minutes or less. This is for the flow of the meets. You will practice with us and get better each day - even if you may not be able to run in the first meet, we know you'll make the requirements by the second one with your hard work.
Jerseys this year - you have to earn it! The top 7 male and female runners will have the official uniform, every one else will wear their team shirt. Everyone will still run, but we want a little extra incentive to put forth that extra effort in practice.
You should be out in the heat of the day every day doing some type of physical activity to let your body get used to the heat and humidity. Perhaps run in the morning, and walk in the afternoon. If you don't have a training plan, we suggest a C25K app. There are a lot of free versions available and will allow you to safely train your body.
If you have any questions, please contact Coach Hesse and Coach Lykon at:
