Monday, Sept. 1st - Labor Day - No organized practice...follow training calendar

Tuesday, Sept. 2nd - Regular Practice at Central Park (may end a little late)

                       *Gear Order was distributed last Friday.  If you were not here or didn't bother to stick around, you must come to Coach O's room at the end of 5th period any day to pick it up (passing period only...not into 6th period).  We are only waiting on uniform shorts, which were on back order and shipped on Friday.  This was easily the earliest we have ever received gear and that was with collecting orders 5 days later than normal. 

Wednesday, Sept. 3rd - Regular Practice

            *Booster Meeting at Tio's (Day Creek & Baseline) at 7:00pm...everyone is welcome!          

Thursday, Sept. 4th - Regular Practice                        

Friday, Sept. 5th - Regular Practice

             *deadline for Morro Bay envelopes

             *Many thanks to the Garcia's who organize our meals while in Morro Bay.  Some of you signed up to assist with those meals and if others that didn't would like to lend a hand, I'm sure they would appreciated it.  In either case, please email Jessica Garcia at             

Saturday, Sept 6th - 7:00am at Marshall Canyon (meet at Oak Mesa Elementary School) - highly recommended for blue group, optional for others

                          *race info for a 5K/10K in Chino Hills(?) was distributed...if you are running in that this morning, please choose the 10K.

Entries for the Woodbridge Invitational will be due on Wednesday, September 10th.  The meet will be held on Saturday, September 20th in Irvine, beginning at 4:00pm and parents are responsible for transportation.  This meet is open to ALL athletes;  I will assume you can attend unless you tell me otherwise.  Please let me know by Wed, the 10th.

Keep in mind a couple of things...this is the Stanford meet qualifier.  The fastest 7 boys and girls will receive the invitations for the Bay Area trip the following weekend.  Illness, injury and other commitments are not considered...the 7 fastest in that meet go.  If you don't attend Woodbridge, you have no chance of making the Stanford trip.  The other thing is that the first league meet will be held on Wednesday, September 24th and we only take one bus.  Previous races and performances will go a long way in determining who makes that bus.

Morro Bay Trip  -  Entries have been submitted for the meet and a release list has been sent to administration.  Deadline for envelopes is Friday, Sept. 5th, but you may turn them in early.

Future Travel Info - We are closing in on a month from the Bay Area trip for the Stanford Invitational.  Of course, we won't know who qualifies until the Saturday before at the Woodbridge Invitational.  However, if you believe you have a shot and your family wants to attend, I wanted to get some info out to you as this is a convention week in San Francisco and rooms will be scarce.  The team is staying at the Bay Landing Hotel in Burlingame and if there are no vacancies, the proximity to SFO airport make hotels plentiful.  The race is on the Stanford Golf Course in Palo Alto on Saturday, September 27th.    

The Heat Is On  -  This is an ongoing issue as we had a few hot days this past week and no doubt more to come...YOU MUST HYDRATE PROPERLY.  The night before and during the school day is critical to keeping you safe during practice. 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 very soon and we have to be ready. 

Blog Post Worth Reading  -  Want to get faster?  It's not the blog at   

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.
