There have been a ton of coaching changes over the last year, so I need to update the NCRunners.com Coaches Address Book. Please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can begin recreating the coaches database. This database will only be used by me and is a huge help to running a successful website. Thanks so much! (Athletes, encourage your coach to email.) Even if you are a long time coach and we talk on a regular basis. Please shoot me an email. Include your name, school, and whether you coach XC, track, or both in the email.

However, knee surgery for Faith may make things a lot more difficult for the Robbinsville team. Faith ran 18:48 for a 5k this summer, but then had surgery on her knee about a week later.
