From the Desk of Ortega...
Ellen Ochoa SRLA Runners:
Welcome to the 2012-2013 running season! Your ultimate goal is to put your body to the test, a 26.2 mile journey that will allow you to prove your endurance, stamina, and perseverance...mind over body. Once you complete your first marathon, your life will change forever! And just like one student mentioned, "If I can complete a marathon, everything else is a piece of cake." So we look forward to helping you achieve one of your ultimate goals.
This year our club has been limited to 30 runners, so if you are one committed runner and train according to our schedule, practice at least twice after school and complete the long runs on weekends you may be able to keep your spot in the team, otherwise we may have to sadly let you go.
Please make sure those physical exams are in as soon as possible or we will have no other choice but to place you in the waiting list.
We are behind you one mile at a time...
No student runner is ever left behind, we will support you from mile 1 to mile 26.2, yes, even the .2 counts!!! Your Leaders and Coaches, Mr. Chacon, Mrs. Duran, Ms. Tarin, Ms. Portillo, Ms. Ortega, Ms. Valenzuela, Mr. Marquez, Ms. Defontenelle and Ms. Lopez-Monguia.
