Summer Miles Lead to Autumn Smiles

 One team ready to hit the ground running (literally) is the cross country team. Since June, the returning runners from both the boys' and girls' teams have been getting in their summer mileage in hopes of preparing for the team's mile time trial and the upcoming invitationals. "From my own experiences, summer miles are very important and will pay off during the season," said Laura Caricciolo '15.

In addition to frequent morning practices at school, the coaches have implemented a new summer training option: a sleep-away running camp! The last week of July, eight female runners traveled to Lake Tahoe combining work and play.

Veronica Alberts '16 elaborates, "The most beneficial piece of information I got was how to be a good mental runner, which impacts the way you perform."

Andrea Vlahos '14, one of the seniors, described her experience, "It was so much fun, but at the same time it was really informative. I learned a lot from the coaches and trainers." Many of the runners left with new tips for nutrition, goal-making, and proper running form.
