-This week the MHSAA officially announced their intent to hold fall sports in the fall along with multiple contingency plans. Included is the possibility of lower-risk fall sports competing while higher-risk fall sports are moved to later in the school year. The full MHSAA press release is here.
-The athletes made a quick mid week adjustment and donned masks coming and leaving workouts. Going forward, all runners are encouraged to keep a spare mask in their car and/or bag in the event they forget to bring their primary mask.
-Our final single track trail is at Highland Rec Area. The trailhead is located on Livingston Rd just west of Duck Lake Rd in White Lake. We will meet at 8:00 and will be running approx 7.5 miles of hilly and very technical trails. Athletes should be picked up around 9:30.
-Next week is the Middle School XC Camp. We currently have about 30 youth runners registered with more expected in the coming days. A camp of this size wouldn't be a success without our volunteer high school athletes. The more volunteers we have the better!
-As training volume and intensity increase it is common for runners to develop some aches and pains. It is best to nip these in the bud before they develop into something more serious. The Aches and Pains section of the Info/Docs page has multiple files on common troublesome areas/injuries for runners like knee pain and shin splints. These docs are a good starting point for anyone looking to treat an ache before it becomes an injury.
-Thank you to everyone that has completed the 2020 Parent Registration. Every runner needs to have one parent/guardian complete the form for the 2020 XC season.
