XC Registration Open

The scene above was last summer.

Part of the xc group was warming up.
Coach Braz was looking carefully at his plan for the morning. It seemed ok last night.

But this morning, well. Something different.
And that's what it's all about.

Bring some joy to your running this summer!

You can pull a conditioning program out of a book or the Internet. You can -- and should -- follow the guideline you got when you left school for the summer, and leave it at that.

Or you can experience a guided conditioning program that responds to the progress you made last week and two days ago, adds a drill that was created five minutes ago, and checks the mood and flow of the day.

And most of all, you can use a program that keeps you excited about your running all summer. You will not be bored. You will never know what to expect -- except 90 minutes of concentrated xc conditioning to prepare you for your fall season.

Those could be "mountain climbers" in the photo above. Coach Braz loves them.
You will too -- if you want to be ready for your fall sport.
