Lynbrook HS - Update #2

Lynbrook X-C (Cross-Country) 1999 August 12, 1999 Hello Fellow Runner, One week to go before X/C training begins. My summer was full - I played Elvis, I mean Pharaoh, in Joseph Amazing Dreamcoat, then played the bass in my daughters production of Godspell, peace. I got into pretty good shape (4:51 mile, 2:14 880) but then pulled my solius. I'm coming back and hope to run Hood To Coast (a 200 mile relay race in Oregon) at the end of August. The week before we start XC I'll be up in the Sierra's for a week doing some major altitude training (and some major relaxing). I have a few changes in store for this year, all in order to make this year's team one of Lynbrook's best. We start X-C training on Monday, Aug. 23rd at 9:00 (we meet at the football shed out by the basketball courts). We'll start off with an easy 3 miles (6-7 miles for you doing the 300 mile club) that day and then work our way up from there, also doing weights. By the end of the season, you'll be able to run 9 miles in the hills without breaking a sweat. We'll have our standard Pizza Party, Rallye Run, Hash Run, Ice Cream Run, and some others I hope. You need to have your HEALTH CARDS in before you can OFFICIALLY run for the team. So please get your packet and get your physical ASAP. Our first meet will be the Lynbrook Inter squad race on Thur Sept. 9th with our next one on Sept. 13th over at Del Mar. So, try to start getting it shape ASAP. If not, we'll just use those races as workouts and a chance to get to know each other. Ray Russell will be my new Assistant coach this year. I've been running with, and against Ray, for many years. He's a local boy and ran for West Valley JC. He's looking forward to being part of the Lynbrook team and I'm looking forward to having him here to help build a winning team. He's even planning on running with us, which I too hope to do should the body hold up. I plan on having a "Turf & Surf" (as long as the weather cooperates) so get in shape. Enjoy the rest of your summer, I know I will. But don't forget to run ... run ... run. Hank Lawson 446-9063 hm 699-2237 pgr
