    Can you believe that this is the last week of our season?  We are tapering this week which means that we will reduce the volume (but not the intensity) of the running so all athletes will feel primed, rested, and ready to have a fabulously fast last race of the season. Proper nutrition and enough sleep are important factors in preparing for this last race too.

    We have an amazing final week planned; some highlights include a CrossFit experience on Wednesday, the End of Season Celebration on Thursday (during practice), and the League Championship Meet on Friday. All WMS XC athletes are able and encouraged to attend this meet (even if an athlete is unable to run). The varsity team (which is composed of the top 9 runners) is designated by the coach. All other athletes will compete in the appropriate open race. Athletes who are alternates have a tough job. They will most likely race in the open race but will step into the varsity race if a varsity runner is unable to run.
