We had a teacher in-service today at Saint Ignatius, with a day off from school for the students. On the day before our first meet of the indoor season tomorrow, we gave the boys a day off from coming to practice at Ignatius. For many boys, it would have meant an hour commute each way for a two-hour practice.
But we still expected them to run. Coach Nate McPherson gave his distance boys a homework assignment: Take a selfie after or during a run today, and submit it on Showbie, the homework application site.
Yes, it was a cold day to run. Some of the boys found treadmills or health clubs.
