One of the most important keys to success in middle distance running is consistent training, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year. To be a successful distance runner, one will spend ten to fifteen years at the endeavor. There are no short cuts to success.

Cross country is the meeting of the middle distance and long distance runner. It is all about challenges. One race I had in high school, we dashed through hills for 2.8 miles and finished by running across a creek! I destroyed my brand new racing shoes. Parents were not happy. We were laughing afterwards.

The eighteenth week of training. That shows some real commitment. As we get into the tough part of the season(now), stay focused, find times to rest and simplify your day. Read a bit, watch a movie, stay off the texting a bit, just give yourself time to think and breath.

The leaves have changed color. There is some cold in the air when you run in the mornings. And in some regions, you have already had snow. It is time for cross country season to get really serious, like conference and league meets, sectionals, state and NCAAs.

Stay focused, this is the time that challenges you, but stay on task.

It was in my third Center meet, my junior year in high school, that I figured out how to race cross country. We were racing on Crystal Springs, one of my favorite courses for cross country, and I was improving, but still not embracing the course.
