Parents and Athletes,




2 weeks left, what??? It's a long season, but man does it go fast.


Mt. SAC didn't disappoint, I hope you all were proud of yourselves. That course is epic as I've said before and you all did great. Congratulations to all!!


This week we start the taper to the end... Tapering is the idea of refreshing your legs, body, and mind by cutting back on the distance so we can be fresh for the final races. This doesn't mean we relax!!! You can do that in 2 weeks. We'll keep the intensity up for intervals but we'll be doing less of them.


This part of the season it's time to refocus and enjoy every practice. Again, don't relax though!!! We'll be enjoying El Cariso this Saturday. The park is beautiful and the course is all grass. So, again, it's not the fastest course but strength rules and guess what, you guys are strong. I asked if anyone knew what El Cariso meant and no one knew so I did a little research. The park was named after 10 hotshot firefighters from the El Cariso Squad that died fighting a fire there. Gang, let's honor those guys and light up the course, grab a couple spots.

If you weren't happy with your MT. SAC race, bring it back Saturday. You guys can do it!!


Looking forward to the next 2 practices this week. Be ready!!!

Soles 4 Souls
LA Running Company is having a shoe drive. for charity, if you have any shoes that you no longer wear, why not donate them for the Soles 4 Souls shoe drive at LA Running Company located next to Smart and Final on Lyons Ave and Peachland. They don't have to be running shoes, and they will be used for people in countries such as Haiti.
Volunteers needed for the Final Meet

We need volunteers to work the concession stand at the final meet, we are also going to need some people to help set up the course and mark it, and course monitors. Please see Coach Elaine or Alan if you want to sign up.
