250 Mile Club!

Megan wanted to send a quick reminder about the training logs & “250 mile club.”  She made training logs for the team and passed them out at practice at the beginning of the summer.  The logs have a few purposes including to help athletes learn about training by recording their runs throughout the summer and season as well as to provide motivation by recording progress and accomplishments.

To provide extra incentive to train over the summer, any athlete that logs 250 miles or more throughout the summer will get a “250 mile club” t-shirt.  When totaling miles, athletes can include any miles run after the first day of summer practice.  If you did not get a training log, please contact Mike or Megan at practice, we have plenty of extras.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
