Sweet Pea Parade

Below is the information on the Sweet Pea Parade this coming weekend. If your athlete would like to join in the march while wearing Hawk gear, that would be greatly appreciated. Get out your XC shirts from last year, wear red and black–meet at the food coop around 9:00am.

Is there anyone that knows how to make Sweet Peas?? Or has some we can attach to the sign post?? Please let me know so I know how much of a panic to be in!!!! We are supposed to have them attached to our “float” according to the directions. We are carrying a sign advertising the Fun Run in August.

Candy IS allowed if you hand it to people! Good news. Hope to get some for you to pass out to people.

Any questions??

I will be out of town Wednesday and Thursday but back on Friday. Let me know!


Last week of July and into August!

Final week of July-Beginnings of August.

Runners, we have a big week before us with lots of great opportunities to put your fitness to the test. Keep following a steady pattern of increase. If you have been good about following your summer training guide, simply stay with it, nothing more, nothing less. If you are just now (or in the last week or two) getting your summer running started, increase gradually and PLEASE come to the get-together runs; in time you’ll feel more and more fitness return.

Tuesday — “Readiness Run”. You can meet with coaches at either 7am or 7:30 pm at the Bozeman Creek Trailhead (known also as Soudough). We want you give solid effort as you climb the rolling hills towards “the bridge”. Freshman will go to the 4 mile mark; all others will go to the bridge. (If you are just returning to some summer base running we will have you go to the outhouse; about 2.8 miles.) REMEMBER, this run helps us to know who is ready for the rigors of our “High Altitude Reward Camp in August.

Thursday — Speed Enhancement Work. MSU track at either 7 am or 7:30 pm.

Friday — No formal meeting.

Saturday — Bozeman Classic. Sign up early in the week. Run either the 5K or 10K. I hope to see many of you on Saturday

Some Summer Information for the Hawks

One month. Four weeks. Cross Country 2014 is coming up quickly. Lets make sure that Week #1 (August 18-August 23) does not feel like Week #1. We want to go into the season feeling like fitness is in progress, strength is coming week by week, and there’s an excitement looking towards the competitions of September. Keep up the great work of your summer training or if you have been relaxed thus far, let’s get started now.

Coming up for the week of July 20-26.

Tuesday — Meet at the LDS church; either 7:00am or 7:30pm. This will be a tempo run; moderate to challenging effort level.

Thursday — Meet at the MSU track at 7:00am. Speed development work. If you cannot make the morning session, yet are hungry to get this session in this week, call me, Coach May, 582-9189, clint.may@bsd7.org and I’ll see if we can get a coach to meet with you at a different time.

Friday — Meet at S. Cottonwood trailhead (S. of town about 18 miles) at 7am. Hilly, long run. A great opportunity to build base strength and fitness.

Looking ahead.

In 2 weeks we have the opportunity to put our summer fitness to the test. It’s the Bozeman Classic, 5K or 10K (part of Sweet Pea Days). We always have a great representation from the Hawks XC team. It’s a great way (fun way) to put in a hard effort while running with 100’s from our community.

In 3 weeks it’s HARC. Those invited will be those who have “hit” the standard on the Readiness Run (July 29), as well as having been “regulars” at the summer runs.

I’m looking forward to these upcoming 4 weeks. This is where we make great strides towards a successful season. Make the choice to be committed.

Distance Breakfast on Saturday

Dear Parents,

Please join the Track Team Distance Crew for a light breakfast after their morning fun run/practice this Saturday (May 17th) at Ed and Sarah Allen’s house (2705 Annie St.) Parents are welcome to drop off their athletes and stay at the house to socialize and help set up a breakfast while the students run. Please let me know if you can come and if you are willing to help provide a part of the breakfast (Bagels, cream cheese, OJ, and Fresh Fruit).

Caroline to speak at the Library on Feb 27th

A free public talk on eating disorders will be given on Thursday, Feb. 27, at 7 p.m. in the Bozeman Public Library for National Eating Disorder Awareness Week.

Caroline Hardin of Bozeman will give a presentation to help raise awareness of eating disorders and the impact they can have on individuals, families and communities.

National Eating Disorder Awareness Week organizers aim to reduce the stigma of eating disorders, to improve access to treatment, and to educate the public that eating disorders are serious, life-threatening illnesses — not choices. The National Eating Disorders Association help line is 800-931-2237 and more information is online.
