> Seniors doing what seniors do.  Sophomores and Juniors stepping up.

> Good job by our freshmen and 1st year XC athletes.

> Our team depth on the men's side is impressive.  Work together and our season will be special.

> Last year's guys averaged :19 / mile faster for 5K races than the pace they ran @ Dog Loop Tempo

> Your current every day training pace should be between 1:00-1:30 slower than this tempo pace.

> First pass at training groups.  These runners should work together for most runs.

> If you are having a bad day, expectation is to drop off the group pace vs having the entire group

slow down to the pace of the slowest runner on the day.
