First, the MILES THAT MATTER event was a tremendous success! Thank you once again to Stacey Wainwright (mom to David [jr] and Anna [so] Cummings) and Avi Huelskamp (mom of Lucy [jr]). They were instrumental in securing all the breakfast food items as donations from local stores. Thank you to all the parents who spent their overnight hours circling the track. I hope that you have recovered quickly from the lost sleep!
The FUNDRAISING side of Miles that Matter continues. ATHLETES: please work to complete your packets. Reach out to find pledges. Those aren't due for another week so you have more time to work. Use the momentum from the weekend to find more sources. We bettered our mileage goal by more than 50%. To do the same with our fundraising goal, we'll need a lot of effort from everyone on the team.
We will hold practice EVERY DAY this week, regardless of air quality. When poor air quality presents itself, we will practice indoors with a modified plan. Our established runners will be asked to complete an indoor workout on those days in addition to afternoon practice.
Schedule for the week. Practice begins at the pavilion unless otherwise indicated.
Monday: practice at 3:00 pm, lasting until about 5:30 w/out smoke, 4:30 w/smoke
Tuesday: practice at 3:00 pm, uniforms distributed after practice
