Brooks CEO Jim Weber always likes to say "A run can flat-out change a day, a life, the world!" I agree 100%! No matter how grumpy I feel, I always feel much better, physically, mentally and emotionally after I finish a run!
With the start of the new year, I would like to offer some "old" advice, but it is always sound and relevant when it comes to getting in that run that will make you feel so much better! Getting out the door is the hardest part, once you do that the rest is easy. I always say to my runners "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time!" This is true with running.
Getting out the door, a mile or two a day is the best start you can have. If you do it everyday good things will follow. Don't try to start with 10 miles if you are trying to get into shape. Develop the habit of a daily run first, the miles will come as you stick with it. 10 minutes of slow easy running beats hours of sitting on the coach thinking about it!
2019 Carson Invite
ECU will be hosting the 6th annual Bill Carson Track & Field Invitational on April 5th & 6th, 2019. Several top schools will be competing including Charlotte, Troy, Citadel and Coastal Carolina.
Coach Choo Track Club is once again organizing the volunteer crew. We need 40-50 individuals to assist the USATF officials with a number of different aspects of the meet. Volunteers are needed to check in athletes and officials, assist announcers, rake pits, move hurdles, shuttle athletes on to the track, count laps and a variety of other jobs. We will provide a free meet T-shirt and lunch for those volunteering. Let us know if you are interested in volunteering, we will add you to our communication list!
