Hale Cross Country isn't for anyone and definitely not for everyone.
It takes strong individuals to dedicate themselves to this sport and team. You are asked to stress your bodies and minds on a daily basis. While many people would rather sleep in on the weekends, our guys are waking up to get their weekly long runs in. They're typically embracing discomfort two times a week in workouts and races, knowing their bodies are capable of getting them to the finish faster than last time. This sport is not always easy, but our guys understand that stress can be a GOOD thing. The guys sacrifice their own comfort for the greater good of their teammates.
Monday is June 24th and an important day. It's a another day to get better as a team. The energy we bring today is the same energy we will bring at meets. Continue to lead with love, and put the interest of your team before yourself. Doing what right can many times be harder than doing what is easy. I heard of 20 plus guys showing up each day doing what is right last week! Keep that consistency and holding every guy accountable. Every guy on the team is a role model through his actions. You influence guys around you, so make sure your actions and communication are doing what is right!
No Limits, run fearless, have fun and include everyone.
