MXCSummer Update - 8/1/2010

Three weeks until official first practice - Monday, August 23!

The summer has flown by. It looks like a fair number of our top runners have been getting in a good summer of training. Horten, Samocki, Monaghan, and Inglis are all regulars at the benches this summer. Sheehan was having a great summer but has an injury - we'll see how that progresses... Klawunn has been pretty steady except for Lacrosse. Nece ran his whole time in Japan and is logging about 40 per week on his own - nice job! Rothenberger says he is running more than last summer and should come into the season ready. Also good reports from Lentz and Lavery. Hope the rest of the returnees are getting miles in ...

Our Freshman class looks very strong this year. Horten, Inglis, Munilla, and Wright have been regulars with occasional appearances from Rothman, Spirgel, Kramer and Caffrey. Thanks to the Klawunns for hosting the newcomers party a couple of weeks ago!

If your name is not listed above, drop me a line and let me know how your training is going. Or better yet, come run at 8AM at the benches!

A number of guys are heading up to the Running Works Camp Aug. 16-21. It is not too late to register - For those of you going, make sure you do not over-do it up there!

We will be cranking it up pretty quickly this year in terms of mileage, so make sure you use the next three weeks to get ready. We'll do a regular distance run on Monday the 23rd and then do the two mile time trial on the track on Tuesday to get a feel for where everyone is on their training.

Also, make sure your paperwork is in. Here is the link for the paperwork, including physicals - As per high school guidelines, you can not practice with the team if your paperwork is not complete.

Also, there is mandatory concussion testing taking place on August 18 at the high school at 1PM. Room numbers will be announced later, and we will have to schedule a make-up for the guys at running camp.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the benches on Aug. 23!
