Shalane Flanagan, first American woman to win NYC Marathon in 40 years:
“My training is always enhanced when I share it”
The best way to help the team is to be your individual best.
Workouts alone are always more difficult.
Being at practice is important for both you and your teammates.
Honor your commitment to something bigger than yourself.

I want to run Cross Country
Students may not attend practice unless Steps 1 and 2 are completed (they will be sent home from practice)
Step 1: Register online here- CHS Sports Registration
Step 2: Write grade and sport in top right hand corner of your current sports physical, scan and email it to sue.fischer@bvsd.org. (Though not required, a blood test to determine ferritin level as part of your sports physical is highly recommended, especially for those older in training age. Talk to your coaches or doctor knowledgeable of the sport of distance running if you have questions.)
