Any time a team can get 3 girls in the top 10 and make All-City is pretty good. DA ran a great race and we ran a pretty good race. You helped us to win the Dennis Cullen Cup for the best overall program in Durham because we scored 100 points (with the boys’ 37). This is the 7th time in 11 years that JHS has won the award, so nice job ladies. The same advice I gave to the boys, I will give to you. It is great to have an aggressive mindset and attitude; however, you cannot let emotion cause you to run faster than you should in the early stages of a race. If you run too fast too early it can ruin a race because it is hard to recover from running a pace that is too fast for the body. Control your emotions so you can control the pace.

These are some of the habits I believe are displayed by great runners (and achievers):
  • training at a high level (being proactive and preparing for a competitive season)
  • planning and organizing time and efforts (setting clear progress and performance goals & objectives)
  • making running/racing a priority (living a healthy lifestyle all the time and not some of the time)
  • having a positive mental attitude (believing you can be successful and help others to achieve also)
  • finding solutions to problems (not looking for excuses or allowing setbacks to stop you or teammates)
  • working together towards a common goal (acting selflessly for the good of others)
