Anonymous asked: About cutting at practice: My coach has had like 3 knee replacements, so he rides his bike with us. It sucks because it means he can check on the boys then slow down and check on the the girls. It also means he's basically everywhere at once... Sometimes he scares me at how talented he is it.
Wow that’s kind of scary. haha S/O to all the runners with coaches who follow them on long runs because you guys are intense and make me feel lame hahaha
Anonymous asked: Can I have advice? My friend is running track right now. I like her at school, but she is so annoying at practice. Also she wants to run XC in the fall. She gets on my nerves cause she is really clingy and does the exact same everything that I do. (By the way, I love this blog) (:
My best advice to you would be working hard this summer so next Fall when you guys do workouts you have to be separated because you’re faster and that way you only see her in smaller doses and she’s easier to handle. Also, thanks (:
Anonymous asked: this is the best cross country blog thing ever - no one understands what we go through. all of the stuff posted is soooo relatable! YES IT IS A TEAM SPORT AND NO MARCHING BAND IS NOT A SPORT YOU TRY RUNNING 6 MILES EVERY DAY
HELL YEAH! and thanks! We should all get medals just for participating in our sport
Runners are the strongest, most devoted, determined people on the planet and no one can stop any of us. Stay strong to all exposed to this terror. We all love you.

Anonymous asked: I love this blog so much! I don't know what was going through my mind when I made the decision but I decided that I didn't want to run cross country in my final year in high school and reading this blog made me realize how great it is and now I regret not doing it /:
awhh ): you should have! That sucks. I hope you’re at least doing track. It’s not soo bad ;)
Anonymous asked: we cant cut cause our coach runs with us hahaha. a couple weeks ago we were supposed to run four miles to a park near our school and then do short intervals the park. these varsity runners cut and our coach made them do an extra workout on the track after the workout o____e
Holy poop hahaha that’s crazy. My coach is in his 70’s so that doesn’t happen to us. I would die. We don’t usually cut thattt much but some days it’s nice to go a little slower on long runs and stuff, ya know? Depends on how you feel.
Well track season is upon us and so I am forced to think about running again. I love it, but this year is really tough. Winter is always tough…
Guys I’m sorry I have not posted in awhile
I suck I know
I will work on that this week
Anonymous asked: what's your personal?
Anonymous asked: I am a freshman and I didn't do cross country, but I am a distance runner. My timed mile is a 5:43 and my 3 mile time is 18:26. I run as much as I can, but lately I have been struggling to run the distances I normally do and track is in two weeks. My goal is to be on varsity for distance and the most we run for it is 4 miles, but I am struggling getting through that too. Any advice on how to keep going?
I struggled this season too. What helps me is finding a running partner of your general speed and then you can work together to push each other before track and remind each other to workout everyday. Also I’d do arms and core until track and through track too, it helps a lot
