From Mr. Fox: Running has been a passion of mine for quite some time now. I competed in high school and college, and continue to race for a local running club on Long Island. I also have seven years of experience coaching boys and girls at the high school level. The SMS Running Club sessions will cover running basics, including form and technique, stretching and strengthening exercises for injury prevention, pre- and post-run nutrition, interval training and pacing strategies, along with safety and track etiquette. The goal, by the end of the semester, is to have all runners complete 1.5 miles without stopping, at their desired pace. Class size will be limited to 14 students, who will be supervised by myself and a parent volunteer (please get in touch if you’re available!).

If you’re interested in having your son or daughter join the club, email Mr. Fox and Jen Laing.
