Cross Country Thursday and Saturday
Cross Country parents-
We are planning to have practice tomorrow (Thursday) unless there are thunderstorms. I will send an email in the afternoon if we are cancelling. Otherwise we are on. Like we did on Tuesday, it will be a light workout with plenty of time for rest and hydrating, in recognition of the heat. This will also give us time to work on strengthening and stretching. Everyone should bring a quart of water.
Saturday is our first 2K race of the season at the Wolf Swamp fields. Parents, siblings, friends can all run, but they need to arrive at 8:45 am to sign the waiver and the $1 fee. No fee for kids in the program. The race starts promptly at 9 am. The weather looks to be excellent. This first race is just a starting point. Runners who improve their times over the course of the season receive a black ribbon.
The kids should wear their uniforms for the race on Saturday. For those of you who have not gotten a uniform, Cari will have the uniforms at practice tomorrow--$10 cash or a check made out to Longmeadow Parks and Recreation.
