Regions week: Parent help is needed for a few things, outlined below. We will have a pre-race spaghetti feed at David Schweizer’s house Friday night. Main course will be provided but we need team members to bring garlic bread and salads. Sign up link above (sign up genius).
We do NOT want desserts that night, and we will drink water. Saturday there will be a post-race party at Aria’s house (desserts allowed then for sure).  Details to follow this week.  At regions we have had a BBQ in the past. Some of you are signed up already to bring things for this. It is totally up to parents if they want to do this. Please coordinate amongst yourselves, or decide not to do it. It is appreciated, but not necessary. Many other teams have BBQ’s also, so I am sure our kids would enjoy their own.

Also, the East XC Running booster club needs a new treasurer (two signers on the account actually) to take over for parent’s whose kids are no longer on the team. This is a fairly easy job. It means depositing and writing 1-3 checks/year. I would love to get a parent with underclassmen, so we can have one person do it for a few years, as transferring roles is likely the most difficult part of the job. Please let me know if you can do this.

Thanks for all the help as we head to our season finale!

Running registraion is closed. It was a bit different this year. There is an online step for kids and an online step for parents, then bring in paperwork to East Activities office. Good news: your physical is now good for 18 months. I am posting the signs from activities office door. Also has more info. The activities office is open school hours (7-2).
Equipment to have: running shoes. A watch is good. If you want to run with a phone please get a holder so it is not in your hand. I just bought some at Skinny Raven ($20-30) but they are cheaper on Amazon (Nathan Mirage Reflective Running Belt Pack, Ultrasoft, Fully-Adjustable = $10). For the girls we are working with Sportique/BodyPhlo to have a jog bra afternoon (right after practice August 13, with a 20% discount for our team.
