This morning – Sugg Farm, 7:30am
See you at the gate on Grigsby Ave in Holly Springs! Coach Josiah Ruhl will again be leading the practice. The 7:30am time slot will be the new start time for the Saturday runs. Helps get off the course before the heat of the day settles in.
Our coaches are all buys for the next week or so, so the next team practice will be Thurs, June 28th. We’ll assume it’s 6:30pm at Lake Pine unless that gets updated. Run on your own as you can, though. Good time to take advantage of early mornings!
Thursday will again be at Lake Pine at 6:30pm. Meet at the lot at 1808 Lake Pine Dr, Cary, NC 27511. This is the parking lot closest to Kroger at Lake Pine/64.
Saturday morning will be at Sugg Farm in Holly Springs at 8am. The park is at the end of Grigsby Ave in HS, but you should be able to find it by searching Google for “Sugg Farm” (near Bass Lake).
I’ll be out of town for these, but enjoy the good workouts! Everyone is doing well so far. Thank you for the good attitudes and willingness for a bit of pain for future gain.
Tomorrow morning’s run will be at Sugg Harm in Holly Springs. Meet near the entrance of the park at 8am. The park is at the end of Grigsby Ave in HS, but you should be able to find it by searching Google for “Sugg Farm” (near Bass Lake).
Thursday’s practice will be at Lake Pine in Cary. Meet at the lot at 1808 Lake Pine Dr, Cary, NC 27511. This is one closest to Kroger at Lake Pine/64.
Hello! Spring is racing by, and June is just around the corner. I wanted to let you know that our first summer training run will be Monday, June 4th, 5:30pm @ Bond Park. We’ll meet near the kiosk in the main field below the gym and next to the lake.
- NCHEAC state meet is Friday, Oct 12th. Boys at 4, girls at 5. You’ll notice on the meet website that Cary Fire is listed as the 2017 boys champion team. That’s back-to-back championships for the boys.
- The Saucony We’ve Got Class race is Saturday, Sep 22nd, first race (Fr/So boys) at 9am, last one (Fr/So girls) at 11:55am. Likely another hot run! This is a huge meet with close to two-dozen public schools and an annual test for all of us. Always a blast!
- One race we’re considering is a night-time Sep 1st run in Fayetteville, the Jungle Run. Not sure yet on that one. It’s a larger invitational, though, and run at night–first race 7:40pm, last at 9:40pm. We’ll get back to you.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. (Hebrews 12:1-3)
Thanks to Cary Christian and especially Josh Estepp for letting us workout with them. They’ve been great in helping our team get off the ground!
See everyone at the Cleveland High School meet/scrimmage tomorrow!
We’ll get back to our original plan for the next set of practices (Sat, Jul 29 through Sat, Aug 5):
