Nope, not me. Why do you ask?
The Logic of Long Distance
my nephew is a freshman this year and has just joined the team. so far, two practices have been cancelled because of the heat, but the two they had were two different things. i mean, okay, i am talking to a 14-year old boy, so he's a little vague. one practice was "just running" and one was "workouts". i tried to get some details and it sounded like one day they ran a few miles together on the road and the other they did some regular old speedwork stuff on the track. sounded all fine and reasonable to me and just two practices is not much to go on. i know how sometimes in high school you'll get a teacher-coach who doesn't know much about the sport, so i was encouraged that at least this guy was doing different stuff and not telling them to just go run. (although i understand the value of just running.) my nephew said the coach cares more about cross country than track -- which is great now, but maybe not so great next spring. anyway, i was just wondering did anyone know anything about the program there in dickson or the coach.
I will try to find something out. Good that they are running and doing some workouts. Hope your nephew has a great time.
Need spikes, no. I think a pair of good flats is better because most courses will have some pavement or something to cross. I didn't run in spikes until college, but I know things are different now and kids have more shoes.
i think "coach emory" i mentioned might be david emery. looks like he ran for mtsu a couple seasons. he might have graduated last year.
