So I heard Sunday's numbers were very low. Tonight I am the Duck so I will not be at Bethpage, but that doesn't mean you all still can't go!! Get the fartlek in, and next time we meet will be next Sunday at Norman Levy Park, and we'll see where we go from there!! Happy running!!

Sunday, 7/13 Practice at Norman Levy Park

Hello everyone. I hope you all get this message in time. Last Sunday, NO ONE showed up to Norman Levy, and the Thursday before, only 5 people showed up for the run. This week at Foundation, 2 were there. All I'm thinking is we are not doing what we are supposed to be doing. If it continues to be like this all summer long, we just simply will not be attending the weekend invitational meets. If you are not committed to showing up for the practices, I am not going to jump through hoops to do that.


Tomorrow morning is 9am SHARP at Norman Levy Park (right off Meadowbrook Pkwy, Merrick Rd. east exit). Tuesday is supposed to be at Bethpage, calling for strong storms right now so PLEASE if you haven't done so already, sign up on Remind so I can let everyone know if we will be having practice then or not.

it's going to be hard to send out reminders when there is only ONE person subscribed to Remind101 (now Remind), please type it in correctly!!


as for tomorrow, I will be at a golf outing out east, so I will not be at Bethpage, doesn't mean you all cannot meet up there and do the fartlek... TALK TO EACH OTHER!! if not, then just do it at NHP!!


we will meet on Thursday at 9am at the school for a group run, it's supposed to be a long run day, we can do some weight room after, spread the word about that!!

Hello all!! Hope everyone is doing great in all their end of year tests and whatnots.  There is a new link above titled "XC Summer Training".  It has on it the calendars for June, July and August, as well as information for all of you to use these next 2 months until the first day of pre-season!! 

Please do not forget to register for Foundation Day and Sleepaway Camps.  You will be getting great training in those two weeks, and the more numbers we have, the stronger we are as a team.  Lets show everyone who New Hyde Park is this year!! Keep track with that info by watching "The vdB & Momo Show" on YouTube :D
