We made it! Graduation run – an easy 2 mile run this morning topped off a great week of running, working out and fun.
After a camp lessons review the campers completed their camp evaluation. Their input will help build an even better camp next year. The leave being better prepared and truly a more “educated runner” which was one of the themes for this camp. We believe in an educated runner. Seek out information and do not follow blindly. Ask – Seek.
The other theme driven home is No Excuses! Each camper received a copy of my book “Coach I didn’t run because…” Then they were challenged to come up with more excuses not to run. Why come up with excuses NOT to run instead of excuses TO run? Because through this process we render excuses powerless over us. There is nothing that will keep us from pursuing our goals.
Any parent wanting a copy of “Coach I didn’t run because…” or a one-of-a-kind book on not only getting involved with track and field (including clubs) but also how to be the best track parent possible for your child – you can pick up a copy of “Runners Take Your Marks: A parents guide to Youth track and field.”
We learned a lot about each other and made many new friends. It never ceases to amaze me how such diverse personalities come together and get along so well. I want to offer MY thanks to every parent who sent their son or daughter to the camp. I am better for having gotten to know each kid.
Should any parent have questions about anything learned at camp please feel free to drop me a line.
Upward and Onward!
