“The body achieves what the mind believes.”

 While every athlete brings certain qualities to cross country, "natural" talent is not as important as pure, hard work. What you put in is what you get out. The only thing that separates first from last is building a strong running base and a lot of hard work. Come watch us or better yet, join us as we continue to build a winning tradition.

 For more information, contact Marist Head Boys Coach Jon Gordon at Gordon.Jon@marist.net

Friendly reminder, the bus will leave at 7:15 am on Saturday, September 22, 2018 for Midlothian Meadows, 152nd Street and Pulaski (across the street from Bremen High School) for the Tinley Park Invitational. Meet schedule and race divisions were distributed in practice on Monday. Thanks. 

Practice, Monday - Friday this week, at 2:45 pm.

 Mike Potter, of New York, recently said, "Who wouldn't want to come to Detweiller? A famous course, with the nation's finest state of distance runners!" Spectators and athletes traveled from around the country for the Peoria Notre Dame Invitational.

 Marist had a BIG day in Peoria at the Richard Spring Invitational. The Marist Varsity Men improved by nine places from 2017 to 2018, and posted 24 victories!

OUR GOAL - STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS

image_name2
The harder you work the harder it is to surrender

 On Wednesday, August 8, 2018, the first Cross Country practice of the 2018 season took place at Chicago Marist. 

 During the TEAM warm-up, Marist Head Coach Jon Gordon asked each runner to go out and bring back one stick to place in a pile. He then took all of the sticks, bound them togehter, and asked a Freshman athlete to try and break the bundle. The athlete failed. No one could accomplish the feat.

 Coach Gordon then took one stick from the bunlde, and easily broke the single stick across his knee and tossed the parts aside.

 “The lesson, TEAM” Coach Gordon related, “is this: alone, each of you can be broken and defeated. Together, you are STRONG; defeat is difficult when you are united as one body.”

Olympian Billy Mills traveling from California to Illinois to address the Marist Cross Country Coaching staff on Tuesday, August 28, 2018

 Olympic Gold Medal Winner Billy Mills will be addressing the Marist Cross Country Coaching Staff, after practice, on Tuesday, August 28, 2018. A special thanks to "Running for Kicks" for sponsoring the event.

 At the 1964 Olympics, Billy Mills shocked the world when he came from behind to win the Gold Medal. It was the greatest upset in Olympic history. Billy Mills is still the only American to ever win the Gold Medal in the 10,000 Meter run.

 Billy Mills was the inspiration for the movie "Running Brave". The movie stars Robbie Benson and chronicles the story of Billy’s life and the many obstacles he overcame to become an Olympic Champion. Billy grew up in poverty and was orphaned at the age of 12. He turned to sports as a positive focus in his life and took up running while attending the Haskell Institute, an Indian boarding school in Lawrence, Kansas, and earned a Cross Country scholarship to the University of Kansas.

 At the University of Kansas Billy continued to improve as a distance runner. He was named a NCAA All-American cross country runner three times and in 1960 he won the individual title in the Big Eight cross country championships.

 In 1960, he did not make the U.S. Olympic Team, but did not give up on his Dream. He trained four more years, and in 1964, Billy Mills made the U.S. Olympic Team. However, his qualifying time for the Olympics was almost a full minute slower than the favorite, Ron Clarke of Australia, and Mills was not even ranked as the top american. The pre-race media coverage focused on Clarke and his expected duel with Mohammad Gammoudi of Tunisia. Billy went largely un-noticed. The field for 10,000 meter final included many Olympic medalists and world record holders.

 Billy Mills followed his dream, regardless of the odds, and came from behind to win the Gold Medal, and break the Olympic Record, in the most dramatic race and dramatic final lap in Olympic history. Billy Mills was featured as Sports Illustrated's Athlete of the Century from South Dakota, and was recently interviewed by Tom Brokaw on NBC Nightly News, and by Byrant Gumbel on HBO Real Sports.Billy Mills was inducted into the United States Olympic Hall of Fame, and is a member of the United States Track and Field Hall of Fame, the National Distance Running Hall of Fame, the Kansas Hall of Fame, the San Diego Hall of Fame, and the National High School Hall of Fame.
