It was nice to have some cool weather and nice to run on our home course yesterday. Thank you so much to so many of you who helped at the meet and sponsored our events. We couldn’t pull off a meet of that size without you. For your information, we had about 2500 kids run yesterday! We now head to Otsego for our next meet on Saturday. The address is 550 Washington Otsego, MI 49078. The course is right across the street from the high school, and is a favorite of many kids because it is flat and fast. Here are the details for the day:
Busses will leave at 7:15
Boys varsity at 10:00
Girls varsity at 10:25
Boys JV at 10:55
Girls JV at 11:25
There will be just one return bus after the meet. Please remind your child that we need to cool down together and do some core exercises before leaving the meet. I’d also like to remind you that parents have been gathering for prayer about 20 minutes before the first race, and all are welcome.
Once again we will offer Monday morning running. Plan to be running by 6:30 in order to finish before school begins. Those that don’t run in the morning can of course still run at our afternoon practice.
If your child signed up for the foot locker event on Thanksgiving weekend, please pay now. The cost is $80.00, with checks made out to me, Doug Jager. Don’t forget to also register for the race at footlocker.com
Finally, having just finished the big race at Gainey yesterday, it’s now time to begin planning for our next big meet we host. It is on Saturday, October 13. If you can help in any way, please let me know and I’ll add your name to the list. I really appreciate it!
Please continue to pray for the team, as we move through the final 6 weeks of the season. Thanks, Doug
