Charity Race

For those who missed the parent meeting, Brady's mom gave us some sad news. Kendra Muller was going to participate on our team this year, but was involved in an accident which has left her paralyzed. There is a 5K benefit run/walk on September 17 for her at O. Roi Hardy Park (12400 S. & Jordan River Trailhead). Please spread the word. More information can be found at One of the race organizers contacted me and mentioned that if we have a group of 10 or more that the registration would only be $15/runner. The forms must all be turned in together and this cannot be done online. Send me an e-mail if you have any questions about this.

One of the most successful coaches of all time is a man by the name of John Wooden. He coached collage basketball for UCLA and his team has the record for the most wins in a row without loosing in collage basketball history. Their success came from their character and their desire to always be better not only on the basketball court but in life. If you can perfect who you are success follows in every aspect of your life. Treat people well, have rules and standards for your self, make boundaries and set goal to become better person. If you do this you will be a great runner i promise you that.

John Wooden quotes

"What you are as a person is far more important that what you are as a basketball player."

"Winning takes talent, to repeat takes character."

"If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?"

If you're not making mistakes, then you're not doing anything. I'm positive that a doer makes mistakes."

"It isn't what you do, but how you do it."

"Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be."

Additional Camp Info

Remember that we will meet at the school as a group at 1:00 on Monday. All you need to bring is camping and running gear. All meals are provided (you might want to brings some snacks though). Remember that you need to have a ride up and back from camp. We are at Redman Campground in Big Cottonwood Canyon. The campground is just below Brighton Ski Resort. I wish I could get a bus, but that option is too expensive. The caravan up there will leave about 1:30.
