Long runs are always one of my favorite workouts of the week. It is the time to get together with friends, tell stories and work together. Make sure you do your long runs with your friends.

Congrats to Molly Huddle, one of Saucony's runners, who set a world best today over 12k at the US 12k champs.

The leaves have changed, and while I am walking in California and it is in the seventies, there was snow in Wisconsin, where my home is. Cross Country is about celebrating all that is fall, hills, changing of seasons, no breath left and then you have to kick with three hundred meters to go!

The tempo runs are part of most serious distance runner's regimens. They help you prepare for the middle sections of races. Little by Little, they help you improve.

Feeling strong now?

Run your long run today with your friends. Relax, warm up and cooldown and remember to change your wet clothes right after your run. The season is now down to the big races. Big efforts are needed. After some studying this afternoon, perhaps take a nap, and unwind.

You are cross country racers.

Racers never waste a step, they run efficiently, knowing that they conserve up a hill and charge fast down a hill, and never, ever, stop passing people until they get through the finish shoot.

And, never, ever, stop racing until you get past the finish line.
