Off-Season Updates - 5-29-21
-Congrats and good luck to our two 3200m runners Quinn Cullen and Jack Campbell at the MHSAA Track and Field State Finals!
-Athletes wrapping up their season are encouraged to take a two week break from training. This pause allows the body to rejuvenate for a strong summer leading into a fast fall. Runners with questions about how best to approach this transition period should reach out to their captains and/or coaches.
-All BXC athletes that have trained consistently throughout the winter and spring should strongly consider getting their Ferritin (blood iron stores) levels checked. Runners that have excellent diets should still get checked periodically if they've been engaging in consistent quality training over several months. What Is Ferritin by Dr. Kornoelje explains the importance of iron, the nuance of low ferritin levels, and a plan for checking and treating iron related issues.
-New in 2021 athletes will be required to purchase shorts as part of their uniform. These are high quality shorts that are available for the team discounted rate of $20. The first orders were placed last week and should be arriving soon. Extras were ordered for any new comers and returners that missed the order. When the shorts arrive runners should bring $20 cash or check made out to Brighton Cross Country for each pair purchased.
-Updated physical and consent forms must be completed for the 21/22 school year. Once completed the forms need to be turned in to the athletic department or to Coach Elsey.
-The August meet schedule has been revamped over the last couple of weeks. The online freshmen packet and summer calendar have been updated to show the changes.
