After running a total of 581 miles last week during camp the boys have reached Disney World in Florida. On our map the teams started in Eugene, OR and ran the 3030 miles to Disney World. After 8 weeks the boys have totaled 3186 miles. The girls did run more mileage during camp, 599 miles and with a total of 3000 miles the girls are 30 miles short of reaching their summer mileage team goal.
After years of the boys surprising the girls with water balloons the girls got even. They spent most of the day on Tuesday filling water balloons and putting them into coolers. After the warm up for our Fox n Hound workout they attacked the boys with their arsenal of balloons from the back of my truck.
Today we ran our hoof-n-pedal workout with bikes down Belmont Road. There were some big PR's for both the girls and boys. Next week we will have our final big summer workout with our build-up down Chestnut.
As the summer winds down I'm very excited about how much work both teams have put in and now its just a count down, 22 days, to our first meet, Hillsboro August 24th. It will be exciting to see just how much everyone has improved!!
