Practice Requirements

Just a quick reminder about practice requirements. You are required to show up to each practice and complete the full work out. Any athlete that does not do the entire work out assigned to them each and every day will be removed from competition. Be at practice and be ready to work hard each day! Remember your goals you made at camp! You can't achieve them if you don't push yourself every day!!

Injuries are creeping up and it is to be expected. You are putting a lot of strain on your body. Please make sure to communicate with us daily and we will alternate your activity if needed. Remember to ice, stretch, tiger balm etc. Take care of your body! Plenty of rest, nutritious meals, and water!

For those of you that did the bear crawls and plyos Tuesday, we didn't mean to give you blisters. We will relocate them to another spot in the future. (Sorry). The turf gets pretty hot, something we are still getting used to, we've always had grass in the past.

Schedule Change

Please note a change in the schedule for the night practices. Mondays and Thursdays we will have practice at 5pm. The schedule states 6pm, but we decided to bring it down to 5pm so people aren't running in the dark! We will meet you at the track tomorrow night, and every Monday and Thursday until further notice. Questions please see Hilton or Gilliland.

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearances, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is that we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is plan on the one strength we have, and that is our attitude... I am convinced that list is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes."

Camp Photos

If you have any photos from camp, I would like to post some of them onto this blog. If you could send me one or two in an email that would be great. You all should have my email address as I have been sending you information all summer. :) I will be adding the Killer Peak Times to the right of the screen within the next few days.
