I want to thank all the parents that attended our information meeting.  I know you had better things to do and I hope you learned a little about the sport and the program.  If you have additional questions, please email me at  If you weren't able to attend the meeting, please review the Team Rules Packet carefully and email if you have questions.  Thanks again!

Coaches Practices - Remember that to receive credit for being at practice, you must have turned in/completed the following:

1.  Athletic Physical Packet  -  You MUST have completed the physical packet to participate in any practice or time trial.  If you took it at school in May, I will have the list with me.  If you took it since then, please bring the packet with you and look closely to make sure all signatures and initials are there, or it will come back to you.  NO PHYSICAL?  YOU WILL BE TURNED AWAY FROM PRACTICE. 

2.  Team Rules Packet Signature Page  -  The Team Rules Packet is located in the "Handouts".  It is expected that you and your parents have read and understand what is contained inside and you must print out the last page and sign it.  A version has been added in PDF format for those that had trouble opening the file.  

3.  Create an account on Running2Win as described below  -  Site was down or running slow, that appears to have been resolved.  You must follow the directions carefully.  If you create an account and do not join our team, then I cannot see you on our team list and as far as I'm concerned, you have not completed this.  Double check by looking on our team on the r2w website...if you see your name, you are all good, if not, then you need to "join a team" as described below.

4.  Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate  -  While we are not running in the heat of the day, you still need to hydrate.  Please drink plenty of water and use sports drinks...mix them up (not together)...don't drink all water or all sports drinks, maybe 2 bottles/cups of water, then 1 bottle/cup of sports drink.  We will be running in the heat soon enough and we have to be ready. 

Time Trials -  Congrats to those that successfully completed the time trial.  25 of the 51 that attempted it, made it.  If you made it, that is the only one you must complete.  If you didn't, you at least know what your time is and know what you have to do in the coming weeks.  Some were very close, so put in the work and you will see that time drop!  Three will be held prior to the start of school and for those that want to continue to work at it, two more will be held after school starts.  Target times for returners are posted in the handouts.  Please review the Making the Team information either on the separate handout or within the Team Rules Packet and understand how the time trial works.  No one will be added into 6th Period PE and subsequently on to the team until they successfully complete the time trial.  Note:  Friday Time Trials are not counted as a summer practice day.

Run-A-Thon Fundraiser - We try to ask as little as possible from parents in regards to fundraising.  If the Run-A-Thon goes well, outside of a few dinners out during the season, we will be done.  Athletes should be getting sponsors before the Run-A-Thon occurs and a sponsor sheet is included in the handouts section.  

Logging Miles:  You must log miles for cross country.  It's not only required but it's a great way of seeing progress and motivating yourself.  There's even a running2win app now to make logging easier!  Register now if you do not already have an account.  Miles begin to count on June 1st, but you can start today.  You need to "Join A Team" for us to see your activity.  Directions are below:

1 Go to this Free Web Site:
2.Register yourself with a username and password and some other basic information.
3.Once you've registered, click on the link within the site to "join a team." You will be prompted to enter a Team ID;  it is T-7864100205-20, then click "Submit Request". That sends an email to Coach O who will grant you access.
Fill out your mileage daily!!

Unsure of your mileage???  Go to Google Earth, click on the ruler icon in the toolbar above the image...when the window opens, click on Path, then measure your route and it keeps a running total of mileage!

During this past track season, we revamped our stretch session at the end of practice, switching to lines vs. a large circle.  This will continue in cross country and because of the numbers, we need more captains.  The six captains you see pictured all bring something different to the table.  Some lead by example, some are vocal leaders, but they all excel and we look to them to lead us in the 2014 season.  I want to thank them for taking on the added responsibility, especially the very important task of leading summer workouts.

It's been a long spring of consideration, but Alex Burkhart has signed with Chico State to continue her running at the next level.  The northern California Cal State campus has a long history of success in cross country and they are getting a great one with Alex.  She's been the workhorse of the distance program in track and the cross country team, as well as being a fine student.  Her hard-working attitude and big heart will make her college coaches very happy.  Congrats Alex!

Congratulations to senior Anthony Herchenroeder who joined 30 other Grizzlies to sign on National Signing Day this week.  Anthony will be attending Aurora University, which is located west of Chicago, and will compete for the Spartans in cross country.  After putting together an outstanding senior season, it's great to see a Grizzly continue to compete at the next level.  Congrats Anthony!

Alex Burkhart will be signing, but has not decided with who yet.
