Crazy Runs!

Hey Runners,

Here is a chance for you to sound off on my blog.  What is the craziest run you and your buddies have talked each other into tackling?  Was it a race?  Mud run?  Maybe it was a trail run that proved more difficult than you imagined or a winter run in a blizzard.  Leave a comment below and tell me all about it.  I want to hear your story!

Running is Contagious


I think it is catching on! Our Cross Country team seems to be growing almost daily.  Four new runners showed up for practice yesterday.  We will see if they return today. I hope they do.  I will feed them cookies!
Maybe it is the lure of pre-race pasta dinners, or the success of previous teams.  Maybe they just want an opportunity to try something new without getting run over by a bigger teammate or hit in the face with a volleyball.  Maybe they like the other athletes on the team, or they simply love sweating for miles in the 90 weather.  Whatever the case, our team is growing and it is great!  They are learning healthy habits that, if continued, will benefit them for a lifetime. 
Oh, and they get to eat these cookies with chocolate chips instead of cranberries!
