I was very pleased to see the six or seven kids at practice today. That showed me a lot about their dedication and commitment to becoming better runners. I hope everyone involved with Wolverine Track and Field shows that same level of dedication and commitment over winter break. Even though we will not be practicing as an official team, every athlete is expected to make themselves better over this time period. Workouts will be posted right here, on this blog, and I expect you to follow them to the best of your abilities. Please check the blog on a regular schedule, to discover what is expected of you on a day-to-day basis. I understand the holidays can be a very stressful time, but sacrifice is necessary to become a champions, and that sacrifice might have to start right now. That might mean getting up before the sun, that might mean sneaking in double workouts, that might mean training when it is below zero out. I can say this about true winners, they all have had to sacrifice at some point in order to become what they were destined to be.
You have all worked hard to get a head start on your competition, don't relax now and turn that head start into a hole that you have to dig out of!
