Times 2016

It was a perfect morning to run. The heat from last week was taken away by the eastern Oregon wind, leaving Monday, July 4 2016 a cool 56 degrees when runners started to arrive at registration. By the time the go signal was given it had warmed to barely 70, leaving it near perfect for the 1mile, 5k, and 10K runners. Though no course records were broken, it was indeed a great turn-out for the race. 110 official runners and walkers, with a few babies in strollers enjoying their first (or second) 4th of July. The Vale High School Cross Country team did a great job (if I say so myself) marking the course and having team members on the course ensuring that no-one got lost at the major turns. Team Moms and Dads managed the start/finish line, playing a vital role in making sure numbers were on and times were taken. Though the 1milers didn't all get an official time, they all did get a milk and a bottle of cold water. In fact with 4 flavors of milk on hand (Old Fashion Chocolate, Vanilla, Plain, and Mocca) all runners were greated with the question "Got Milk?" as they finished. And they must have, as all 180 milks were gone by 10:30 when the tables came down and the cross country team gathered signs off the course. In total there were runners from the age of 3-90! With many regulars and a few new faces in the mix. Top prizes were more than just the trophies and gift certificates, as many long time friends had some competition at hand as to who could out sprint whom. Teachers, ranchers, policemen, small and large business owners, and even a few dairy kids were out supporting the cross country team. Thank you to all of those that came out to run, walk, stroll, or cheer! Next year we will be back with more milk, and more smiles.

Why Cross Country is AWESOME, and why more kids should come findout....

There is this HUGE misconception that to run XC you have to be fast and really LOVE running. This not true. So totally NOT true. Particularly in high school there are very few that truly LOVE running. Little secret: most just tolerate it. But why? Well for one; when you run a lot, which most XC teams seem to do, you can eat a LOT.  This sorta sums it up:
http://theoatmeal.com/comics/running2




 Which is crazy right? But no. Completely true. So if you love to eat, but feel a little bit bad about it. Come run.
Second reason. You get to hangout with pretty awesome people. XC is one of the few sports that allows introverts and extroverts to co-exist on the same team. Not just that. It's proven that XC teams have high GPA's, which has got to count for something? If nothing else they are great for study groups (on long bus rides to cool places to run).
Which basically means if you feel like this:

It's ok... because you are NOT alone.

Seriously. It's 3.1 miles. If you run in about 10min/mile that's slightly over 30min, which in reality isn't bad. It's the same time as a lame TV show with commercials. Or an awesome episode of Bones off the DVR. 

Yes there is practice. But practice is more than just :GO RUN. There's a lot of joking, overall fitness (sworkit anyone?)



And overall comradely.




So that's the thing. Not everyone gets an amazing runners high after every run. Not everyone loves the sound of solo shoes on a dirt road. Not everyone pushes for that medal. Some of us (a LOT of us) just run to eat, to be with people, and sometimes to just get fit no matter how much we hate it.

I'm super excited about this season. I want others to know the passion and joy running can bring, but I'm good with just doing it to get better at a fall sport.  Which trust me... you will. 

Practice starts tomorrow. Come out and play! We'll being doing a few jogs, some sworkit, and I'm sure a lot of jabbering about random things. Because really. That's what runners are good at: eating, enduring, and making fun of the two!

P.S>
In preference to this post, we (being 5 runners, two coaches, and one amazing husband/camp cook) just returned today from a 3 day running/team bonding camp. It was good. Really, really good. And not because we blasted through trails at record speed, or set a world record for push-ups , but because we didn't. That was not the point. The point was: climb mountains, traverse trails, do a few jogs between, and get to know your teammates. Which we did do, along with eating some amazing food. This leads me to the real point of this post: Cross Country (XC) is AWESOME. Not because everyone needs to be fast, but because they DON'T. It's awesome because you can be You. It's a completely individualized sport that allows for awesome team bonding to occur!
