Dear Alan,


Parents, Coaches and Amazing Athletes:

What a morning of racing out at Pierce College!  You guys are really looking amazing, you're blowing me away.  I hope you athletes realize how great you are doing.  Your hard work is continuing to pay off and I can see the confidence growing in each of you every day.

How about some breakout performances from Kaylee Thompson, my very own Aubree Stepan, and all the first time racers out there.  I am very proud to be working with such an incredible group of kids and parents.

This week, we will continue to push with more hills, longer this week, as we build.  We'll have 2 more weeks to gain strength before we cut it back to fine tune the legs just before MT. SAC.  Corriganville is this week.  NO MAJOR HILLS for all ages except Youth.  This is a fun course and usually pretty fast.  Gradual long uphill, and downhill.  Somewhat of a windy course through big oak trees so overall I think it's just a fun course that all of you will enjoy.  After another hard week of workouts it's going to be a walk in the park for you!

A couple things to remember at this point in the season: don't slack on stretching [stretch at home], eat well, if you have sore muscles ask your mom or dad to give you a little rub down with some icey hot or something like that, sleep well, and did I mention stretching.  Keep your vitamins in you, especially vitamin c.  You don't want to get sick now.

Thanks to all that came to the nutrition seminar.  The feedback I have received has been positive and I wanted to touch on a couple highlights for everyone:

1. Not all sports nutritional supplements are created equal, you have to know that what you are putting in your body is the best quality and not genetically modified, and backed by clinical studies.

2. You need to plan out your eating and drinking, every day.  For before, during and after training and racing.  Don't forget about recovery after a big workout or race.

3. I use the very best sports nutritional supplements out there.  Ask me about them and I'll provide you with information.  You can check them out at my website:  

Thanks again for being so great and get ready for another awesome week!

"One Hurdle at a Time" Bracelets 
Justin Baltau

Once you wear the Santa Clarita Storm uniform, you are part of one big family. The support of this family extends far beyond a cross country course or the track and into everyday life.


When we received word that one of our family members, Justin Baltau, was in need the response was overwhelming.  As he continues to take life "One Hurdle At A Time" now is your opportunity to show Justin that you are there with him. Created especially for the Storm, in limited quantities, these purple "One Hurdle At A Time" silicon bracelets are your chance to not only help the Baltau family offset medical expenses but to show your support for the Storm family. Available for a minimum donation of $2, these can be a daily reminder to us all of how perseverance can overcome any hurdle we might face and cross the finish line together.
