State Bound

Two themes that guide us:

TEAM

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.

TIME

Desi Linden, first American woman to win Boston Marathon in 33 years:

“Keep Showing Up”

Running is hard.

Consistency is key.

June, July and August are important.

Have patience.

You get out what you put in.

Guaranteed improvement with effort and time.

I want to run Cross Country

Step 1:

Fill out registration packet:

(English / Spanish)

Scan and email it to sue.fischer@bvsd.org, or drop it off (offices are open M-F 9-4pm).

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, or drop it off (offices are open M-F 9-4pm).

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.

Step 3:

Attend practice.

You can only do this if Steps 1 and 2 are completed. If you haven't done Steps 1 and 2, you will be sent home.
