Hello Gremlin families,

It is hard to believe we only have 3 meets remaining as a team!  The progress our Gremlins are making is just awesome to witness  Last meet, we had perfect conditions lots of PRs on a fast, beautiful track with cool temps – we got many PRs!  Our Gremlins demonstrated great sportsmanship too – one of our teammates told me how another runner asked her while she was getting ready to race, “Are you ready to get beat?”  Our Gremlin promptly told her that was poor sportsmanship and ignored her.  Unfazed, our Gremlin wound up winning the race, leaving it all on the track. In another moment, one of our Gremlins lost his shoe – instead of giving up, he picked it up and ran with it in his hand until the end of the sprint, smiling all the while the stadium cheered him on.  What a fun way to spend a Saturday!

This week we will be pushing our Gremlins hard given that we do not have a meet on Saturday.  Reminder that Gremlins do not participate in the meet this weekend on April 12 & 13 – over 2000 runners from LA and Ventura counties come – coaches are not allowed on the field.  All Gremlins skip this one.

Our remaining meets are on 4/20, 4/27 & 5/4. The meets on 5/11 & 5/18 are for those very few runners who quality within our entire VCYTC.

Let’s have a great week of practice  You’ll hear again from me next week in prep for our 4/20 meet.

Take care,


PS Please check the lost and found box & with me – we have gathered quite a lot of Gremlin gear including some in my bag – I would love to off-load it ASAP.  Thank you!
