Race #2 is in the past and did you guys turn up the heat on the competition or what?  I am still waiting to see the results from all the races but I know we had some massive improvement. 

I hope every one of you continue to feel stronger and stronger each week in practice and now in races.  From a coaching perspective I have a plan for you guys and for these early races you may feel a little tired.  I want you to race as well as you can on any given day, but having fresh legs in these early races isn't the goal.  My goal for you is to have your best races at the end of the season. 
So don't hold back in practice with the anticipation you might be tired at Saturday's race.  Trust the workouts and when the time is right, you'll be fresh and ready to run your best race of the season!

Enjoy your race from Saturday, but keep looking to the future, and if you didn't have the race you thought you could have, think about what could be better and work on that this week. 

Here's a quote from Pre to motivate you!
"You cannot propel yourself forward by patting yourself on the back."

Plain and simple, let's live in the NOW, work hard and "propel yourself forward" this week!!

Great job everyone.
Coach Jeremy
Lap-a-thon Sept 15, 2009
Our lap-a-thon was held on September 15, at Saugus High School on the Track, This is our primary fund raiser event, This fund raiser helps us keep our price low, allows us to offer scholarships, and assist our athletes in national competition.
We ask every family to seek pledges either by flat rate or a per lap donation. The athletes run 1 hour, later they return to their donors and collect their pledges to turn in by the dead line.  
We will award a grand prize of Disneyland park hopper tickets to the athlete who raises the most funds. Every athlete who raises $40.00 will also win a prize.   
The deadline to be eligible for the grand prize is October 6th. Athletes who raise $40.00 or more will still be eligible to win a lap-a-thon prize even if they turn in the funds after October 6th.
