On Thursday, July 19th, Adam Kedge of Albuquerque Academy will be speaking at the Boulder Running Camps. The talk is open to public, but specifically I’m hoping local high school coaches will be able to attend.
Adam’s boys team have twice been ranked #1 in the nation by Marc Bloom’s Harrier magazine. Maybe more impressive is that fact that they’ve made the Nike Cross Nationals most every year the event has been held.
With that in mind, Adam’s first talk will be focused on what he does to get his teams to qualify for the Nike Team Nationals. There will be plenty of time for questions following that talk.
His second talk will be focused on working with Curtis Beach, who set the high school national record in the decathlon under the guidance of Coach Kedge. I think it’s interesting that Adam had to coordinate Curtis’s work with his various event coaches and I think we can all learn from that experience.
I will have the talks on video in some format, but I can’t promise when they’ll be available.
What I can promise is that any local coach who wants to meet us for a free meal at Beau Jo’s Pizza (baseline location) at 5:00 pm is welcome. All I ask is that you RSVP to me via email (coachjayjohnson @ gmail . com) so I know how many will be attending.
The talks will begin at 7:15 in the Benson Earth Sciences building lecture hall. Again, if you can RSVP that would be great.
Finally, if you have some time and want to listen to a podcast Adam and I did early this year, click here.
Thanks for your attention. Another big camp announcement coming soon.
