I’ve been running for just over three years now and I love it! I hope to do it for the rest of my life. I appreciate a good dad joke and am a closet math nerd.

Normally, I would do my shakeout today, but due to minor shin splints, I'm taking today off. They're only in my left shin. They aren't that bad, but I just want to get rid of them before the season starts. 

Tomorrow is the first day of my team's XC camp. I'm super excited. We do all kinds of fun things. Tomorrow is our long run. We run about four miles to this dam and play around in the water and then run four miles back. The next day, we do mile repeats on this hill. They're fun because you get a really good down hill. The team does a bunch of other stuff too. It's really fun. I think it's good for our team bonding.

Hope your shin splint get better soon.

My mother taught me some exercises to do to prevent shin splints.

I wish I could show you how to do them.

It is hard to explain, but what you do is stand on your heels and tilt your feet upward, pivoting on your heels. It will strengthen the muscles along the shins.

Hope you have fun on your cross-country camp.
