Covered Bridge Meet:

We are in for an absolutely beautiful couple of days for our meet Friday and Saturday.  We appreciate everyone stepping up to volunteer.  You should be hearing from your “Captain” with more detail about your duties. There are still a few spots open in the Parking area.  Please refer to the NEWS item about CB Volunteers needed and the Sign Up Genius.

The Middle School Meet will be held Friday evening and the High School Meet will be held on Saturday morning.  Many runners will be helping out with the middle school meet on Friday evening.  A bus will be taking the runners to the park on Friday afternoon.  More info. will be coming out in a NEWS blast soon on TeamApp.

PLEASE try to carpool Friday night and/or Saturday morning.  Parking will be tight and whatever we can do to minimize cars would be most helpful.

Practice Update:

There will be NO practice for any group this Friday, September 8 due to the Covered Bridge Meet Friday and Saturday.

nut Tip of the Week:

Lunch period can sometimes come at an early hour. So before that hard workout around 4 p.m., it’s important to snack. Otherwise, with fuel stores depleted, the workout will feel harder than it should.

A granola bar and some water right before last period works. Or try a sports drink, which provides calories and fluid. Be sure to refuel within 15 to 30 minutes after the end of your workout. Eat 12–15 grams of protein and 35–50 grams of carbohydrates immediately after a run, plus replace 24 ounces of fluid for every pound lost during a run. Try chocolate milk, trail mix or a sports bar.

Disney Meet:
