XC in March?
No, not Cross Country Skiing....
World Cross!!!!! This past weekend, the best runners from around the world competed in Denmark, and the course looked brutal. Don't get me wrong, I'll tell anyone from outside of NJ that getting up the first hill at Holmdel is like running up Everest and the last 10 feet of the bowl require climbing gear but... this course has a section called "The Viking Zone"

Also in action, Counselor Anzano (2017) opened his season at Stanford with a 4:00 in the 1500!
New season new shoes! All too often, athletes forget to replace their trainers. Brooks recommends that you should replace your shoes when they have anywhere from 250-400 miles on them. For many of you, that might even mean changing shoes in the middle of a season. Remember making smart decisions can be as important as working hard!
My pro tip is to order your next pair in advance so you never have an excuse not to change your old pair out!
