MEA Practice Schedule

It is very important to run over MEA! If you do not, the race on Tuesday will be tough. Our middle school team will not be having official practice but you are welcome to join the high school team for their MEA practice schedule (check Dave’s emails). You can ask a parent to run with you or ride a bike next to you to keep you company.  You can also call a teammate if you are in town. Running is more fun when you have company!
