    went for a run. At that time we only ran about 3-4 miles or so, but by the middle of the cross country season we were running up to 6 miles everyday. We trained all throughout the summer increasing our mileage every week so that by the beginning of the season were were ready to race. Our season was great, we all did really well and kept on improving every week. I personally did very well too. I started out on JV running a 5K in 24 minutes and 30 seconds and by the end of the season I was running Varsity with a 22 minute 30 second time. This may not seem like a lot, but in cross country two minutes is a big difference. Our first step in the final weeks leading up to State we ran at Conference. At Conference I ran in the JV race and got 15th out of almost 200 girls and I got a time of 22 minutes and 25 seconds. The Varsity got 1st and will forever be the Little Ten Conference Champions because of the conference realignment. At Sectionals I was the alternate meaning I was the 8th person on…

So surely everyone who runs this distance without pleading for death must be out of their mind, right? If that is the case then the elite, prestigious cult of marathon runners is clearly insane. But this is a prejudiced, biased opinion based on the human…

  • Personal Narrative Essay: The Powerful Colorado River

    the heat. There was no shade, no water to cool off with except the precious packs we carried on our backs. As someone tripped over the countless piles of loose stone, we stopped for a second as he collected himself. It was the first time I had actually looked around in a couple hours. The entire world was red. Red stone in every direction. Behind me, the Colorado, with all its power, was no wider than my thumb. Ahead of me, the foot trail continued for countless miles.

From a coach’s point of view, Obermann agrees with the ideology of early fast paced practices. He explains that running abnormally fast builds anaerobic muscles, helping you run faster over short distances. Early harriers only needed to practice this anaerobic pace because it was all they needed to compete in 2-mile…
