    Cross Country Season started July 30th and we have already started training for the first meet. Those who ran during the summer will have an easier start. It is never to late to start running. We will be utilizing parts of the training plans listed below throughout the season. Be prepared, I will push you to your limits and I will ask you to work hard. The effort and hard work you put in will be rewarded.
