"-The will to win means nothing without the
will to prepare."
We had a great meet on Saturday. The
meet got off to a slow start, I don't
expect that to happen this weekend. The
kids did great and I saw a lot of kids
having a good time. I always like the
first meet because it gives a good idea
of what to expect the rest of the
season. It also gives us an idea of
where we are and what areas we need to
work on. I look forward to seeing the
kids excel in their performance and
this weeks reminders to help you find your

Weather has been inconsistent and
unpredictable;cold, wet and windy,
then suddenly HOT. Arrive wearing a
few layers, but be able to end
dressed for weather 20 degrees
warmer than it actually feels
outside. After a minute or two of
running, your body will warm up. It
is just as uncomfortable to get
overheated, as it is to be too cold.
Layers work best and can be adjusted
during practice; a base layer of
snug, wicking material, a mid-layer
of looser material and a light outer
layer to block wind when necessary
and allow moisture to escape.
plenty of water all day, every
day before, during, and after
your run. Dehydration is
responsible for: dry/ itchy
skin, headaches, thirst,
fatigue, crankiness, becoming
stressed easily, unclear
thinking, flushed face,
cramping, weakness, sleepiness,
dry mouth, bloating &
constipation. Do not
underestimate the need for
water! Diets high in fast
food deprive the body of WATER.
Balanced diets that include
several servings daily of fruit
and vegetables help hydrate our
bodies and reduce the need to
constantly drink water.
Think about how you treat
your "running machine" ~your
Should I Run Even Though I'm Sick?
Congestion? Coughing? Sneezing? The
Runners Rule; if the illness is above
your throat, you can run, but if it's in
your chest, you should not run. Fever,
chills, body aches, or upset stomach, do
not exercise. Let common sense be your
guide! Don't Share!

Calendars at 7:00 PM. Prompt arrival is

In an effort to emphasize the importance of
maintaining scholastic ability in
conjunction with athletic ability, The Santa
Clarita Track Club in cooperation with local
school districts, awards a Scholastic
