I would be interested in some input into the idea of starting up a summer high altitude traing camp for high school boys and girls. I have opted for early (47) retirement and have always been a runner and would like to give something back to the sport. I want to make it clear from the beginning that making a profit is not an issue or my motive behind my idea. Just the thought of getting high schoolers to commit to a summer of training and seeing them kick ass from the training is all I am looking for. Other than just putting the word out into the local running community and piling a bunch of kids into my S.U.V. and heading to Lake Tahoe there must be more to it. Or not?
I don't have any advice, but if you are totally serious I wish you luck. That would be something really cool to do.
I am joining the Albion project. If you want to run fast, I suggest you do too.
post some more info about your camp and maybe you'll get some people to "sign up"
I'm in. If you get it goin i'll be there.
I know that there was this guy that had a camp that took his kids up to Lake Tahoe but I can't find his name. This was like 2 years ago.
Before ascending the mountain, check out my article in Coaches Review (my USATF Caoching Level III project), 'A New High Altitude Protocol"
I am in Europe through Jan 15, but would be glad to email it to you when I return.
