Hilliard Davidson Boys Cross Country Report
Hot Summer Bash Week: As the excitement builds and your desire to compete begins to boil over, Davidson should remember that are bodies are not yet ready for fast times but are minds will be as competitive as ever. The mind knows what each of you can do so continue to picture that perfect race when you close your eyes. The goal of Davidson is to stay connected to your teammates. Have a mental chain that will not break. This chain will pull the person behind up. Each of you are important and you must run for the team.
The workweek is full of preparation for our first meet. Monday we attack the HILLIARD workout, Tuesday and Wednesday build upon each other. Thursday we pick it up. Friday is 5:45 AM pre meet. 7:00 PM we have dinner with the Trinity Kentucky team and Saturday we arrive at the course at 7:45 AM.
Mental power: If you can picture the race you then can recreate that image into a work of art that your body will produce. Know that you are strong and that when the pain comes you will embrace it. You will fight for your teammates. You will drive to the finish because you are running for the name of DAVIDSON.
Front Runner Attitude: A front runner is defined as someone who finishes in the top ten of a big meet. The Hot Summer Bash will feature seven state ranked teams with the top team from Kentucky and the defending state champions of Ohio. Davidson is older and smarter. We know that our mission is about the state championships but the process starts with our first meet.
