I have had a few people asking about the 2015 cross country camp. We are
planning on going to Marsh Lake (in the Uintahs). Right now I am hoping
to get the campground for August 3-7 (a week later than the past few
We are going to stick with the first week in August for this year unless
a bunch of you won't be able to attend that week. Please let me know if
this week is going to have conflicts. I already know of a few conflicts
for July 27-31, and I am hoping to go with
the week that works best for MOST of you.
In the meantime, I hope you are excited for another great year in front
of us - Indoor, Outdoor, and Cross Country. I always feel like the new
year is a good time to get back to a few basics with running:
1. Hard Work - put in the mileage, do your core work, prepare for the
intervals and hard workouts, and give your best effort daily. You can
even do some extra miles through morning runs and/or cross training.
2. Healthy Living - Eat enough calories, Get the right nutrition, Hydrate, Get enough sleep.
3. Positive Thinking - Realize running has ups and downs, and it is
especially important to stay positive and patient through the hard
You are going to have days where you feel great and days where you feel
not so great - stay positive through it all, and help others do the
4. Love Running - Find a love for running and be grateful for
your opportunities and your TEAM. Come to practice each day with a love
for what we are doing. You have to find a way to love even the hard
stuff (especially the hard stuff).
