Florence Cross Country
zAre you looking for something to do this fall? Well we have something for you!! That is Cross Country Running. Everyone can run no matter what your ability and the beauty of cross country is that it's you against not only the competition and yourself, but also Mother Nature. Over a variety of surfaces -- from dirt and grass to mud and asphalt to gravel and everything in between -- you'll find sharp turns, short steep hills, long cantered sections, logs to jump, creeks to cross, bridges to negotiate, all combining to constantly disrupt your rhythm much more so than a race run on an even, flat surface. The goal is to learn to employ a steady effort rather than set an even pace. It will hurt. It will take time. It will require dedication. It will require willpower. It requires sacrifice. There will be temptation. But, I promise you when you reach your goal, it’s worth it.
Running is so symbolic of life, you have to drive yourself to overcome the obstacles. You might feel that you can’t, but then you find your inner strength, and realize you’re capable of so much more than you thought.
The team comradery is second to none. Come join us on the first day of practice August 19th. Any questions please contact Mrs. Harrison or Mr. Johnson.
We would love to have you join us.
