  • "I learned that if you really try you can do it and I got fit."
  • "I have learned that everything isn't about winning."
  • "To never say I hate myself."
  • "It doesn't matter who you are it just matters that you are active."
  • "I have learned how to pace myself when I run."
  • "To walk with a purpose."
  • "I learned how to exercise.  It helps me with my body."
  • "Be healthy and to have fun."
  • "About achieving and to not say bad things about myself."
  • "I have learned that staying fit can be lots of fun!"

Race Day Info!
   The GOTR 5K will be THIS Sunday, November 18th at Jiffy Lube Live.  Our school will meet in the CENTER of the green corral.  You should be at the corral BY 7:45am so you can check-in with our school.  The race will begin at 8:30am in waves.  We will know our precise start time once the race begins.  At the end of the race, please check-out with our school, otherwise the coaches will be looking for you!  

  Please review ALL of the following documents so you and your GOTR are aware and prepared for the race.  You can find them in the folder below labeled "Race Info for the Nov. 18th 5K at Jiffy Lube Live!"  Here is what's included:
-Course Map: see where you will run
-Parking Map: see locations for parking and where spectators can watch the race
-5K FAQs: commonly asked questions and their answers
-5K Etiquette: important reminders to keep the 5K safe and fun for everyone

  Girls will receive their race day packets at Thursday's practice.  At this time, girls who ordered a TCW GOTR shirt will also receive these.  It would be great if the girls could show their GOTR spirit by wearing one of their shirts this Friday to school and one of their shirts on Monday after the race!  

 If you have any race day questions after reviewing the information, please contact a coach!

Great job!
We had a GREAT first practice!  We set our expectations for the season and played some "get to know you" activities.  GOTR Participants have an optional "homework" assignment:  Create a chant or cheer for GOTR!  We will share a few at each practice.   
The Fall Season is ALMOST Here!
