Running Clubs

I’d really recommend checking out a local running club. These aren’t specific to high school, but would be a fun way to run with others in your area. Check out this link to see if there is anything that looks like a good fit near you.

Summer Schedule

For our newer runners, be sure to be out 3 times each week for 30 minutes minimum. As you get more comfortable you can continue to increase your time and spice up your runs with some different types (tempo run, speed workout, longer run 1x week).

  • 6.29 8AM Wildwood Trail

  • 7.13 8AM Powell Butte main parking lot

Summer Runs (cheaper)

Let’s see if we can meet up at any of these. I will not be available, but if other runners can make it we can just organize a point person (parent or student) to arrange to all meet up and run together.

Summer Runs (costly)

Here are some more options, though the cost might be prohibitive:

Gear

  • a handheld running water bottle (I got mine cheaply at Sierra Trading Post outlet)

  • running shoes (I prefer minimalist style, or lower drop… Gabe found good advice and a really cool 3D display of his feet at a store downtown)
