Great weather – low 80s – clear with a mild breeze greeted campers for day one of the Elevate Running Camp. Already campers are settling in getting to know each other. It was enlightening learning from each other with the “2-True-1-False statement About Myself” introductions. We have representation from Nevada, New Mexico, Phoenix Valley and Tucson vicinity. Runners range from incoming freshman to seniors.
Here’s a few of the campers…
I’m happy to have on board Ryan Skuse and Katie Miller as running counselors for the camp. The are having fun making everyone feel welcome.
Our first run was an easy NAU neighborhood run of just over 2 miles. We ran at a conversational pace. But, it was an eye-opener for everyone running at 6000 feet elevation. Aha…Camp ELEVATE! We’ll take their running to another level.
They were also introduced to the theme for the camp: No Excuses!
More to follow.
