Living and working in Arizona has provided a great opportunity for me. One of the things I have always wanted to do is to be a track or cross-country coach (although I recently added it to my "to do" list). This week, I accepted a job as the cross-country coach for one of the middle schools in the district where I work. I am so excited! The team will consist of boys and girls in the 6th through 8th grades. I don't really have any coaching experience, but I am ready to jump into it and have fun with the kids. The season starts after Labor Day and runs for about eight weeks. We will have six meets during that time, all of which will involve several other schools. Practices will be held Monday through Wednesday. I am very excited for this opportunity and am looking forward to working with the kids. Go Bulldogs!
