Week #1 Wrap-Up
Great first week of practice! I'm still a bit stunned with our numbers this year. It's encouraging to see so many young runners zipping around the track and fields. The Reading "herd" should create quite an impression at our first big meet in just a few short weeks! We finished off the week with a fun continuous relay on the RMHS Track and a few extra sprints down the straightaway. Wednesday's "barefoot striders" on the grass seemed like a big hit as well. It was awesome to see a bunch of the team out running the Fall Street Faire 5k Sunday morning! That was much longer than any of the Middle School only races we'll be competing in this season. Looks like we should be well prepared for the one to two-mile races on the schedule. Next up is an easy day on Tuesday, then our one mile time trial on Thursday. Competition between the Coolidge and Parker should be tight! We will not be holding practice on Friday as I'll be out of town for a wedding. That might be a good day for the kids to go for a light 15-25 minute jog on their own. If any parents would like to help out on Thursday, I could definitely use a few extra hands at the finish line.
