Cross Country Update July 5

Darts -
I hope you have all been enjoying your holiday weekend. We had a great time at the Kaysville 4th of July 5k/10k. It was good to see some of you at the race. Ashlyn was impressed with your efforts and said you all looked like you were running really fast. It is hard to believe that the first month of the summer is already gone. The cross country season will be here in no time.

If any of you have been able to watch any of the US Olympic Track & Field Trials this week I am sure you have been inspired by the awesome distance races. Eugene, OR is definitely the greatest track in the country for distance running. I have all the races recorded and we will watch a few of my favorites at practice in September. The highlight of the trials has been Lindsay Anderson making the Olympic Team by running 9:30 in the 3000m steeplechase. Lindsay came to talk to the team last year at our parents' night, and she is Brad's sister-in-law. Brad was also her coach when Lindsay was in high school, and I am sure that is one of the reasons she ran so strong to make the team. Here is how the other Utahns have done:
Josh McAdams (ran for BYU - the only guy to ever beat me at the Simplot coaches mile) - 3rd place in the steeplechase (makes the Olympic Team)
Josh Rohatinsky (ran for BYU) - 5th place in the 10,000m in 27:54 (he also took 6th in the marathon trials)
Seth Pilkington (ran for Roy High and Weber State) - 19th place in the 10,000m
Sariah Long (ran for Weber State) - 12th place in the steeplechase
Mike Spence (trains with Weber State) - 6th place in the steeplechase
Abdi Abdirahman (not a Utahn, but he ate dinner with our girls at the Nike Team Nationals) - 1st place in the 10,000m
It was pretty amazing to watch them all run so well.

1 - High Altitude Camp: I sent out the list of those invited. If you don't have the paper for camp yet, make sure you get one on Monday at the Vita Course. The 1st paper and $40 are due by next Monday (the 14th).
2 - Upcoming Workouts:
Monday (7th) - Vita Course @ 7:00 am
Thursday (10th) - Davis High @ 7:00 am
3 - Send me your workouts from Week 5 (that was this last week) and any others which you have not reported on (there are some of you who have not done a very good job with that this summer).

Keep up the good work. Make sure you are doing the little things that will help you improve - like ABS, hydration, and a good diet (make sure you are getting iron - it will help you recover and will help you to have energy).
