Runners and parents,
Coach Maren and I wanted to touch base with everyone and encourage everyone to continue to be discipline in running on their own in this difficult time. I am hearing good things about some of you doing real well, some running on their own and some running in small groups. We have to all look at the big picture and ahead for the xc season.
I am in regular touch with the administration and as of today nothing has changed as far as being able to get together as a team, coming from the Alachua school district and the FHSAA. We are hoping that areas will slowly open up with guidelines. (I was told that San Felasco has opened up.)
I just talked to the Brevard Distance camp and they are now taking REGISTRATIONS WITHOUT DEPOSITS. They are also still using June 1st as their deadline to hear from the North Carolina Parks Dept.as to whether in can be held. The Buchholz coaches want to go as a team the last week in July. So far 199 runners have registered for that week. They are setting a new limit of 250 this year as opposed to the normal 450. So please, if you want to go contact them now. There is no risk or penalty if things don’t work out. (I’m trying to think positive:-)
We would love to hear from you as to how you are doing, so don’t be afraid to stay in touch. We both miss working with all of you VERY MUCH. This has been the hardest thing to deal with during this crazy time.
Coaches Maren and Lehning
