Pasta Party

High school pasta parties have come a long way, as athletes and parents have acknowledged that no one needs a vast store of carbohydrates to fuel a 5K. Aim for variety. Bonci advises dividing the plate into thirds: carbs for speed, protein for strength, and the last third a combination of fruits or vegetables and fat for endurance. For parents and team captains, try to expand on the traditional offerings with a pasta bar that has whole-grain or gluten-free varieties and different types of sauces. Make-your-own pizza with turkey pepperoni and veggie toppings, or even a taco-themed party are fun options.

Coach Dugan’s Shower:

Thank you to everyone to making Coach Dugan’s shower an amazing experience!  I think she was (mostly) surprised and definitely overwhelmed.
