Dear Team,


Today is our Lap-a-thon it will be held at Central Park Please arrive at 5:30 pm.

More details below




Just a couple notes about the race this weekend.


1.The course is close to us to you don't have to wake up that early, yeah..

2.Plan on giving yourself an extra 10 minutes once you arrive because you have to walk about .25 miles to get to where we setup. Also the parking can get crazy inside the park so you may even have to walk farther if you are running behind.

3.The course is not very hilly, really there are just 2 hills to contend with and neither are steep. Overall this is a pretty fast course but plenty of technical sections so BE VERY CAUTIOUS. There are ruts in the dirt, and roots in the grass, and then a downhill with exposed rocks and ruts and loose gravel that can cause you havoc. Not to worry, I will give you plenty of help with how to deal with it and be successful.

4.It is going to be hot and that course is typically dry, and it can get windy so make sure you have the following

a.Plenty of water

b.Plenty of electrolyte drink


d.Youth and midget's bring some solid food to eat mid-morning, granola bar, pbj...

e.Get plenty of sleep this week and eat healthy food

f.Don't get too freaked out about my information, it's better to be prepared. This is a fun race, really.


That wraps it up for this edition. I'll be talking more about the race at the next two practices and hopefully by Thursday night we can have the parent helpers nailed down.


Thanks so much for everyone's commitment.

Coach Jeremy
