Mountain Athlete Seminar

Some of you have been wondering how to do leg-blasters. Here is a video showing how its done. I spent the weekend with the Mountain Athlete folks and have a bunch of fun stuff to share! I know you can't hardly wait. Any time you can do things like Mr. Spectacular, Turkish Get-Ups, Barbell Complex, Ankles to Bar, and Dumbell Crawls...well you know it's going to hurt.
Any time a gym's motto is...

RELISH THE WORK. ENJOY THE SWEAT. WELCOME THE PAIN...well, you know its going to be good

Screens, Housekeeping, and Motivational Thoughts

A couple of housekeeping items: Starting Monday the 7th you can pick up pre-season workouts that will get you through the Holiday in good enough shape to be ready for practice on January 5th. Above are the screens for the hoodies and sweatshirts which will be ordered at the first of next week. Included is a photo of one of your ex-teammates throwing it down at this year's Big Sky XC Championship meet and a little ditty by an unknown author to help you brave the cold and get training!

The average runner runs
until the breath in him is gone,
But the champion has the iron will
that makes him carry on.

For the rest the average runner begs
when limp his muscles grow,
But the champion runs on leaden legs,
his courage makes him go.

The average man's complacent
when he's done his best to score,
But the champion does his best,
and then he does a little more.
