Smoke report for Saturday, August 25th

Today's practice is still on for 9AM to (no later than) 11 AM. With the lingering, but apparently (maybe) dissipating smoke in the air, here are the factors we need to consider:
  • This practice is optional, but for those of you who need to get in additional practices, you won't want to miss it. 
  • We will evaluate the air quality when we arrive at 9AM. If the AQI remains above 100 for Lacey, we will stay inside and use the variety of cardio machines we have in the gym. If the index is below 100 we will stay outside, but will engage in easy running only (we will go to St. Martin's and visit our home course).
  • Assuming the air quality improves and remains below 100, all should work in an easy run on your own either today or tomorrow (think of your 30, 40, 50, 60 or 70 minute groups from our trip to Millersylvania). The other day should be a day of complete rest.
  • We can only count your run this weekend as an official practice if you attend today, Saturday morning, with your coaches.
Cross Country: it's way more than just running! Be smart, safe and conservative with the sketchy air conditions. Go Rams!
