DXC Update - Nov 5

Darts,

I hope you've been able to relax a bit after the 12-hour run. We ended up running 126.5 in 12 hours! Thanks for all those who participated, helped out, and made it a fun day. If you have any donations, please bring them to me this week.

We had a solid week of training. I was really happy with the mile repeats at Barnes and the tempo by Ponds. A group of boys have been meeting at 6:00 in the morning to get a few extra easy miles in before school. It helps loosen up a bit from the previous day and keep our mileage up without really noticing. It's been fun and surprisingly the boys have a lot of energy in the morning and are very talkative. It's not without drama though... we have had a couple of run-ins with a gang of running moms that have slightly heckled us. You're welcome to join us (girls included), but we leave right at 6:00. Be there at 5:55.

Athletes of the week:
Nate Sheffield and Emma Oliver for being so helpful at the 12-hour run.

Pre-NXN Race
We're hosting a race on the Region course at Layton Park on Wednesday at 4:00 pm. The race is open to everyone. I hope to see our 8th graders there. We're not getting excused from school and there will not be a bus. You'll have to find your own ride over there. Be there by 3:00. We're not separating into boys/girls, or JV/varsity. There will only be one race with everybody in it. Surf 'n' Swim doesn't open the gates for us unless we have people monitoring the gates. I'll need volunteers at Surf 'n' Swim, timing, the finish chute, and results.

TEAM Banquet
We're still planning on having the banquet on Thursday at 6:00. I haven't pinned down the location just yet. We'll order pizza and have people sign up to bring salads and desserts. I hope most of you can make it even if you're not running with us anymore.

NXR 
A reminder that the waiver and the money ($280) for Nike Regionals is due by Friday this week. You can bring it to any of the practices during the week (except Wednesday). Make all checks out to 'Davis Running Club'. The waivers were attached to last week's email.

This Week
Monday - 12 x 400 on grass
Tuesday - 4-5 Easy Run + Strides
Wednesday - Pre-NXN at Layton Park at 4:00
Thursday - 5-6 Moderate
Friday - 6 x 800 in the Hollow
Saturday - Aerobic Range Long Run
Sunday - Stretch


Uniforms
Turn them in. Even if you're going down to NXR. I wanted them last week. I got about half of them back.

Let's make it another solid week of training!

ps Jared Ward was 12th in the NYC marathon this morning, and Shalane Flanagan was the first American winner in 40 years for the women.

DXC Update - State Championships

Darts,

The State Championships showed again that Utah is very competitive in cross country. It's always an exciting day full of surprises. It's such a tough course, and I was happy with . In the girls race, only 19 points separated 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th place, and for the boys only 21 points separated 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th. Our girls took 4th and the boys took 7th. Everyone fought hard and we had some ups and downs, but we can always learn something from each race and get up and start fighting again. How we respond the next few weeks will show our character and toughness. I'm already looking forward to the next few weeks as we get ready for Southwest and move into indoor track.

DXC Update - Region Championships

Darts,

Great job so far this season. Region was great, but we're not done. We're going to the State championships on Wednesday, October 18 and we would like everyone on the TEAM to keep training through state. It's going to be a beautiful week for running. Show up to practice with tons of positive energy. I hope the entire TEAM is planning on going down to State on the bus to cheer on our TEAM. We need all your energy.

Region Championships
Friday was the Region 1 Championships. First off, let me say how grateful and touched I was to see all the teams from our region band together as a family of runners. Before the racing began, we received cards and posters from the other teams which was very nice, but it didn't end there. I'll get to the rest of it later.

It was so great to see you racing with heart, determination, and purpose. So many of you ran a faster pace at Region than you did at Pre-Region... which is the same course, but a mile shorter. For many of you, it was your best race of the season! The JV Girls kicked off the racing with some great performances, and it quickly turned into a battle with the girls from Weber. I have to admit, it gave me quite a scare. Usually teams can't match our depth in the JV races, but Weber had girls everywhere. The top 25 finishers were exclusively girls from Davis and Weber with Jennica Robinson finishing as the JV girls champion. It was great to see our girls run together and push each other.

25 of the top 28 JV Boys, including the top 17, were from Davis. Some great packs formed, and I saw some runners take risks and race with guts for the last official race of the season. It's inspiring to watch so many of you working and finishing together. Every JV boys race this year, with the exception of Murray, was won by an athlete from Davis. It all came together for Nate Iverson as he pulled away with about 400 to go and looked strong doing it. Garrett, Jalen, Caden, and Noah rounded out the top 5 for a perfect score.

The race that I was most nervous for was definitely the Varsity Girls race. It was going to take an inspiring race from our girls to pull it off. Weber returned 6 of their 7 girls that took 4th at state last year, including the top returner (and hopefully 2017 state champion). Our girls were smart and tough. Ellie and Ruth bided their time the first mile and let the race calm down before making their move to finish in a solid 3rd and 5th place. Sydney was the difference maker, and Madeline and Rosie raced with determination and toughness to finish off the scoring all in the top 10 of the race. The final score was 35 - 39 for Davis. I was so pumped I almost forgot there was another race. You girls are awesome!

Here's where our region is so awesome! Cojo and Chunk both said they were definitely going to come to region and showed up to the races in their matching wheelchairs. All the runners from Fremont had "Connor" written down one arm and "Adam" down the other. I didn't see it, but at the starting line while our boys were getting ready to race, all the other teams got together for one big "DAVIS!" cheer for our team. How neat is that? The Fremont coach sent me the video. We had a lot to run for, including McKennion and Sara that still weren't cleared to run. Syracuse gave us a poster that said, "We run today for those who can't," and that is what happened. Our boys were inspired. The highest anyone was going to finish at Region was 3rd place since Bronson and Zach Winter from Fremont were going 1-2 (and hopefully the same at state). Seth didn't panic and didn't move into 3rd place until the second half of the race and finished 13 seconds clear of 4th place. Jared had a Danny Diaz-type race to finish second on our team followed by Derek, CJ, and Trey. I know our boys pushed themselves through more pain than ever because they were willing to hurt for their brothers. The final act of kindness offered to our TEAM came when our boys were announced Region Champions. Fremont started it off, and then the rest of the region joined in to give our boys a standing ovation. I got a little choked up while taking pictures. Good thing the camera was covering my face. I wish I would've gotten a picture/video of the other teams cheering for us. It was touching. Like I said, we usually don't get a lot of love coming our way, but this is different. As runners we are family. We have a bond that comes from pushing ourselves past unbearable pain and from the countless miles on the roads and trails. We love our region and wish them all well at State.

DXC Update - Sep 30

Darts,

Many valuable lessons can be learned through running and racing. Hard work, dedication, patience, and perseverance. The importance of recovery, and paying attention to the little things. The ability to deal with pain; to expect, embrace, and push through it. Dealing with victories and defeat. But in the end it's just running. There is so much more to life, and sometimes we are reminded of how precious it is.

Five of our TEAMmates were in a car accident late Friday night, and two of them were taken to the hospital. Chunky (Adam Hedquist) has a bunch of stitches on his head to go along with some fractured ribs and a fractured pelvis. He's obviously in a lot of pain, but won't stop joking around and staying positive. The first questions he asked were, "How's Connor?" and "When can I run again?" CoJo (Connor Jones) took the brunt of the force and is in the ICU with a fractured skull, eye socket, ribs, and pelvis. He was less mobile, but is staying positive and expected to recover fully, albeit slowly. Neither has been able to eat or sleep much. They've been grateful for all the visits and have felt the love from so many, but the hospital has asked us to not visit Connor anymore until further notice. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Everything seems so frivolous after an event like this, but I know our TEAMmates would want us to be strong and continue on. We have a lot of great things going on this week.

Homecoming Parade
The parade organizers have asked us to kick off the parade at 4:30 this Thursday by running with the flags. That should still give us plenty of time to make it to the TEAM dinners.

Region Dinners
We'll be having our TEAM dinners Thursday at 6:00. We'll make assignments during our meetings on Monday and Tuesday. The boys will be at the Hogans and the girls at the Spackmans.

Region Championships
The Region One Championships are Friday, October 6th. The top 4 teams will go to the State Championships.
3:00- JV Girls
3:30- JV Boys
4:00- Varsity Girls - Ellie L, Ruth W, Madeline E, Rosie S, Sarah W, Sydney H, Sara M, Abi W, Megan A, Kate S
4:30- Varsity Boys - Seth S, McKennion M, Porter V, Derek T, CJ R, Jared H, Trey F, Carson K, Zach J, Jacob H
5:15- Awards Ceremony at Kenley Amphitheater

For a lot of you, this is your last official race of the cross country season. Let's make it count.

Much love,

Coach T

Darts,

We had a busy week with the District Championships and BYU Invite. The weather is finally starting to turn. It might actually feel like cross country season this week as we get some rain and lower temperatures.

District Championships
Because of the schedule this year, we used the district championships on Wednesday as a chance to get a solid workout in, run as a TEAM, and work on the last 800. It was fun to watch our TEAM move and finish strong. We finished first in each race. The results are attached to this email.

BYU Invite
Yesterday was the BYU invite. It was a flat, soft, and fast course at East Bay golf course. We showed a lot of improvement and we're definitely heading in the right direction as a TEAM. The Fr/So boys kicked off the racing on a very cool morning looking very strong led by Jacob Halverson. We were hard to beat as our 5th scorer crossed the line in 14th place to score 40 points to AFs 81. Sydney Hedquist then battled it out in the girls race for 2 1/2 miles before breaking away for the individual win by 17 seconds. The girls ended up in 6th place.
The Varsity Boys got to race against all the teams that beat us at Murray where we took 5th. Springville was missing one of their guys and Timpanogos didn't run their varsity, but American Fork showed up in their place (minus one of their top guys). We have some tough competition in Utah which is great to help us stay motivated and push ourselves to be better. The boys were again led by Seth and Connor who were only 4 seconds apart, but because of the depth of the field were 10 places apart. The boys took 3rd this time. The girls kinda got swallowed up at the start, but were able to find each other and work together. Ellie and Ruth finished a tenth of a second apart, and Sarah Waddoups worked through about 50 girls to almost catch up to Madeline. The JV boys and girls finished off the races with some strong performances. Depth continues to be one of our strengths as the boys took 1st and the girls took 2nd. Derek Thornton led the boys with the individual win and an unbeatable 20 points with a 1-5 spread of only 23 seconds. Jacque Smith led the girls to score 61.5 points to Lone Peak's 56. The full results for the race are found here. If you haven't already checked, you can get on and look at your mile splits and placement in the race at each split. It's good information to help analyze your race.

Athletes of the week
Girls - Sydney Hedquist, Ruth Wright, Jenny Ensign
Boys - Seth Stromberg, Nyle Ferguson, Carson Coleman

TEAM Shirt - 2nd Order
We are doing a 2nd order of the DXC shirt. Send me an email as soon as you can. I'll get the order sent out early this week.

Bob Firman
We are leaving for Bob Firman on Friday morning. The Itinerary is attached. As of right now the weather looks perfect for racing in Boise on Saturday.

This week
Monday - Distance Run
Tuesday - Morning run on your own. Meet at the track at 6:30 pm
Wednesday - Distance Run
Thursday - Light intervals at Fiesta
Friday - Those going to Bob Firman meet at school at 7:00 am
Saturday - Bob Firman

We're winding down fast. Region is less than 3 weeks away! Come to practice with a little extra fire and excitement. Come ready to work.
