Welcome to Still Cross Country
Get Ready for XC
- Get all of your paperwork ready before first practice - http://still-xc.weebly.com/paperwork--forms.html
- Get a good pair of running shoes - many local running stores will be able to put you on a treadmill, examine your stride, and match you with a shoe that will suit your foot and help prevent injuries. Naperville Running Co., Road Runner Sports, and Dick Pond Athletics are all great running specific stores. This sport is very light equipment-wise, so get a good pair of shoes.
- Run! If you haven't been running over the summer, it's never too late to start. Go out and run 10, 15, 20 minutes, whatever you can handle. The more running you are capable of doing when the season starts the better.
Winter Running Miles
4 weeks into winter running logs - time flies when you're having fun! Already 619.5 miles run by our athletes despite 2 shortened holiday weeks! It's getting colder, so be sure to bring a hat, gloves, and layers of clothing from now on. For those of you who are multi-sport athletes, keep up the good work and come run when you can. Tell your friends to come run with us, the more the merrier.
Winter Running Clubs has begun 11/1
