Why You Should Join Our Team
It is my firm belief that everyone can and should be a runner. Running is in our nature as a human species and our bodies are amazing and can adapt to almost anything we ask it to do.
Our second president, John Adams was a fan of long, brisk walks because he believed it kept his mind clear, focused, and sharp. Teddy Roosevelt was the first president to engage in short runs for personal health.
Whether you are a seasoned veteran, an undecided newcomer, or someone that is switching sports and trying running for the first time, cross country will be a sport you will love! We are all about having a good time, setting personal goals, and working hard to achieve them.
Finally, the thing I love about our sport besides the teamwork is that there are NO timeouts, NO substitutions, NO rain delays. We run in anything (except lightning of course)!
"If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how fast or how far. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run." - John "The Penguin" Bingham
We finally learned
What life is all about...
The secret of success
Comes hard... No doubt
We trained, we sweated
We ached, we cried...
And found out we got better
each time we tried!
We were pushed, yelled at
Preached at, too...
But the more that this happened
The more that we grew!
"You can be anything you want to be" the voice kept shouting out to us.
Yet who can we blame
For such a daring approach?
That friend I call my COACH!
