Indoor Track

It is time to get serious for Indoor Track!  The info is on the Track Blog, but the cost will be $50 for the 2 months and needs to be taken care of in the main office and a permission form signed and turned in there as well.  Everyone needs to pay!  This is how the coaches are paid for their time and the amount is minimal.   If you play Junior Jazz it will cost you at least $60.  Also, it covers us with liability Insurance. 
 Distance workouts as well as plyos, weights, and other workouts will be posted here weekly.  The indoor meet schedule is up on the schedule page on the Track Blog along with the info for signing up.

Tuesday- On your own
Wednesday- Monarch Meadows @ 3:20pm
Thursday - Fitness Room @ 3:10pm, workout and run after 
Friday-  BYU 2 Mile  Mouth of Yellow Fork Canyon @ 3:20pm Saturday - BYU meet or TBA

Foot Locker and November 27 - December 2

Thanks to those who have turned in your forms and insurance info so far.  Those of you who have not done so need to get everything to Coach Barnes Monday November 27.  This includes: notarized parent consent form, copy of insurance card, and parent approval form (the one we handed out at the banquet).  If you are missing any of these please get them in Monday.  
Good job to those who have put in the time and effort to going to California, and not just having fun, but racing well. 

Monday - 3:20pm @ Monarch Meadows

Tuesday - 3:20pm @ Monarch Meadows

Wednesday - 3:20pm @ Rosecrest Park

Thursday - Leave HS to California at 6:00am from Herriman

So because we purchased a day pass to Knotts Berry Farm the cost was $49 per ticket instead of $34 for the night pass they offered last year, so we need everyone to pay an extra $15.  Please do this ASAP in the main office and give the receipt to Coach Barnes.  Sorry for the inconvenience and extra cost.

 A couple of things to know for newbies:
  •  We are staying at the La Quinta Inn in Pomona CA.
  •  You need money for food and snacks, other than the breakfasts provided by the hotel.
  • I have to have the permission slip signed, along with the other paperwork, and in my hands Monday before we leave.
  • Don't forget your running shoes and racers.  You might want road shoes or blank spikes in your spikes for the race.
  • You will be school excused, but still need to talk to your teachers and get any work missed.
  • You need to be caught up on classwork and assignments before you leave.
  • Do NOT test rules on this trip, especially in the hotels or you will be going home via parents.
  • We will get back to the HS late Sunday night.
  • Let's go have fun, race hard, and be the most respectful and well behaved team there!

Thanksgiving and Novemeber 20-25

Big thanks to the parents (Bracken, Burrell, Miller, Vickers) who took the athletes to NXR Southwest this weekend in Casa Grande.  The team ran hard and had a good experience at a major championship meet.

This is the last major week before Foot Locker, so make it a good one.  Some of you have slacked a little in your training, and others have done well, but regardless everyone is in need of a solid week.  Hope to see you all out everyday that we can train, up until Foot Locker.  Hopefully you all registered for your races at Foot Locker, because the prices shot up last week.  There is a Moratorium for us Thursday through Saturday, so you will be on your own.  

Please get the Foot Locker permission slip with a copy of insurance card to Coach Barnes ASAP if you haven't already.   Also the form stating that parents are in favor of the trip need to be turned in at this time.

Monday - 3:20pm @ Rosecrest Park

Tuesday -  3:2pm @ Monarch Meadows

Wednesday - 8:30am @ Rosecrest Park 

Thursday - Happy Thanksgiving!   Run a race or do a 3 mile tempo run

Friday - Run on your own

Saturday - Run on your own

We are proud of Herriman Alumni Rory Linkletter for earning All-American honors at NCAA XC Nationals on Saturday! Congrats Rory and BYU for their 3rd place finish!

Big THANKS to all of the parents and athletes who came to the Banquet on Thursday.  Special thanks to Brackens, Bristols, and Myers and anyone else who helped for the nice decorations.  Thanks to those who helped with set up and take down as well.

Foot Locker
We only have 4 more boys spots and 3 girls spots available to go with us to Foot Locker.  If you would like to go please contact Coach Barnes ASAP and get your money in and a receipt to to him.
Remember those who are going to Foot Locker need to make sure you register for the race today before the price goes up from $17 to $40.  Registration is HERE.  Register for your age group race.

The Nike Southwest Regionals are Saturday in Arizona.  Good luck to the boy's team and to other other individuals competing for Herriman at NXR Southwest!

Please strive to be at practice as often as possible and make sure you are running o your own if you can't make it.  we would also encourage you to run some local 5ks and turkey trots as well.  Since we don't have any meets it is good to stay sharp in racing.  There are Thanksgiving races everywhere and anywhere, so take advantage. Go to or the link on the left side of the blog to find local races.

Banquet, Foot Locker, Davis Pre-Nike and November 6-11

The XC Banquet is this Thursday November 9th at 6:00pm in the High School Tech Atrium.  Cost is $11 per person (anyone including parents or those attending with you) and that amount needs to be paid in the Main Office into the XC Club account by the morning of Tuesday November 8th so we can have count for our caterers by Tuesday at noon.  Please do it sooner if possible and please give the receipt to Coach Barnes ASAP. At $11 a person we are not going to get a bunch of extra food, we need a count The Banquet is Sunday dress for athletes (boys in shirts and ties and girls in dresses or skirts).
Let people know that might not be paying attention to the blog. 

Foot Locker price and deadline will be finalized tomorrow so please check back here for details.  The cost for this trip is $320 total for travel, hotel, insurance, and Knottsberry Farm (this is a few dollars cheaper than last year).
Foot Locker money needs to be paid by Friday November 10th and we will do a first come and first pay will go basis.  Because we are taking 1 bus there will be room for 48 athletes.  There were over 60 that said they wanted to go at one point, yet only about 20-25 have been showing up to practice regularly.   Whoever gets their money in (pay into the cross country account in the main office) and gets a receipt to Coach Barnes will be put on the list to go.  Once you are on the list you will need to get on a register for the race ASAP since price goes up this weekend from $17 to $40!

Pay attention to the weather and dress appropriate for practices.  Even though the weather will turn cold it does not mean that you can slack with hydration, sleep, and nutrition.  Doing core and stretching on your own will help too.  Let's work hard and be smart for the next 4 weeks so that Foot Locker is a good experience and then you can take a break!  Some of you have missed a lot of practice and are pushing not going because of not being at practice.  Change your ways!  Remember that the coaches aren't getting paid to go to practice so it is out of the goodness of their hearts to be there.

Monday - 3:20pm @ Butterfield Park

Tuesday -  3:20pm @ Monarch Meadows

Wednesday - Davis Pre-Nike meet  4:00pm
