A couple months ago, I was talking to my high school coach, Coach Mike Tanner, and he asked if I would be interested in talking with the local high school teams. I was excited to be offered such an opportunity. This week, I had the privilege of returning to my high school (now split into two schools: Warren County and Skyline) to give a talk on all the little things that take you to the next level in running, such as core, strides and drills, and nutrition.
Upon arriving at the track for a run with the Skyline High School (Coach Mike Tanner) and Warren County High School (Coach Jeremy Burnworth) teams, I was met with a surprise: The Warren County girls had made "I love Emily" shirts. I was very flattered, and it made me not so nervous for the upcoming talk.

The next day, I went to Warren County's dual meet with Clarke County (The Wildcats won on both sides!). Meanwhile, the Skyline Hawks were at an away meet with some fiercer competition with the boys missing the win by a mere two points. After the race, the girls invited me to cool down with them.
