Runner expectations

  • Be respectful to everyone around you. Be a positive leader in your classes, in the community, and throughout the building. Make good choices!

  • Work hard academically. Stay on top of your grades and DO NOT wait until the last minute to do make up work, quizzes, tests, etc.

  • Finish strong in practice and in meets. Do not give up! Quitting is a habit, and it is a habit that we do not want in our runners.

  • Put in an honest effort in all practices, meets, and weekend runs.


  • New shorts for 2013 are $20. This payment is due on the first day of practice.

  • You may use LAST YEAR’S shorts if you do NOT plan on running varsity.

  • Tops will be issued the first week of practice.

  • Tops must be turned in at the end of the year or you will be on the fine list.


  • Runners should communicate with Coach Harris and Coach Duss in person whenever possible.

  • Do not send your friend to tell us you will be missing practice or a meet. Take responsibility for yourself.

  • If necessary, use email to contact coaches. [email protected]

  • Practice hard. Finish workouts. Don’t quit.

  • Commit to eating right, staying hydrated, and getting enough sleep.

  • Listen to your coaches regarding race strategy, practice, etc.


  • Stay well hydrated!! Your body is composed of about 72% water. Water bottles at all times!

  • Avoid fried foods (they are difficult to digest), especially the day prior to and the day of a meet.

  • Eat well balanced meals. It is important that the calories you consume are not “empty” sugars and starches.

  • Eat in moderation. Before practice and meets, be particularly conscious of how much you’re eating, as well as what you are eating. Avoid big meals


  • Wear appropriate running shoes.

  • If you are unsure about your shoes, talk to your coach first.

  • When purchasing shoes, we suggest Fleet Feet or Berkeley Running Company.

  • If you know your size, brand, and model, is excellent.

  • Appropriate running clothes. It makes a difference

  • Pack your “meet bag” for all weather occasions. Some meets will be rainy, some hot, and some may be snowy. Be prepared.
