Cross Country Boot Camp

As you may or may not know Matthew and I are running cross country for our school.

We started practicing and working out with the team back in the beginning of June after being recruited by the head coaches and have been kicking butts and taking names ever since :)

Every year the team goes through this cross country bootcamp before the season starts which survivors refer to as: 3 days of hell on earth.

It's basically a boot camp where you work out, exercise, run, and work out some more for hours and hours on end until you scream "UNCLE" at the top of your very weak and weary voice.

Last year the coaches took the cross country team up to Big Bear Lake for their annual bootcamp/torturous three days, and from what I hear it was a lot of work/slightly exhausting but also a lot of fun.

It's team bonding on the ultimate level, you are all there together suffering, working out, whining, complaining and bonding as a team, and once you've completed the camp not only do you have stories to pass on to the freshmen that will come next near you also have a better sense of who all your team mates are.

Plus it's a great work out ;)

This year the boot camp is going to be held up in Nevada, the whole team is pitching in to help pay for the food, the water, the gas, and of course the housing.

I still haven't decided if I'm going to go or not (lol) but either way the trip does sound like it's going to be a lot of fun and if I do end up going I pinky promise to get a ton of awesome pictures for you all...

The area where the team is planning on staying is simply AMAZING! :)
