Dear mom & dad,
Coach pushed up the intensity this week on my training. With some harder trail workouts and faster road runs I felt strong throughout the week. On the 4th of July all the cabins got together for a day off and there was some celebrating. Some of kids got sent home for celebrating a little too much, oops.

This week we also had to write some poems to express our thoughts on running.
Here is my poem:
I run through the hood
it doesn't make me feel good
so i then head to the trail
along the path I sail
I also spent some training time with assistant coach working on my stride. We did a long run the other day and I picked up some tips. Then for the remaining part of the week they shipped me to Texas to heat train again. I got run with a group of kids here at the Texas Camp. Some of them have been doing some serious training. I represented our camp well and was the only camper to complete both of the loops. After this weekend they have me going to Jamaica for some new type of training.
