Posted by Laurie Gordon on Oct 12 2010 at 05:00PM PDT


Great job by all our campers who just completed the 11th annual X-TREME RUNNING CAMP.

All of you rocked and did a great job combating the heat and humidity. You did not let the elements defeat you.

The guest speakers were awesome. Marcus O'Sullivan telling us how he started out and what it took to make 4 Olympic Games. Tom Fleming, on Tuesday, talking about the high mileage that he put in to become one of America's top Marathoners. Therapist/Elite Masters Runner Janice Morra, on Wednesday, diplaying various core exercizes as well as form analaysis. Mike Mykatok on Thursday telling us that if you want to be the best runner possible, you should not be a multi sport athlete, but concentrate solely on running. The same day, former Morris Hills High standout and current Harvard Runner Shawn Poherence talk about getting the many benefits out of the sport and running with a smile on your face. Shawn is a great example of a runner who continues to look at the big picture, no matter the type of adversity he might be going thru. He has a great attitude!  Our 3rd speaker on Thursday was Ramapo Track and Cross Country Coach Mike Jackson who gave some great tips for those looking to run at the College level. Friday was another outstanding day as Jersey girl and 2x Olympian Ann Marie Lauck gave a motivating talk about her love for the sport and the mindset it took to reach the level that she did. Friday also saw former Runners World Editor and elite Runner Mark Will Weber talk about how to attack both up and down hills. Camp concluded with the X-TREME 5K. Congrats to our Champs: Steven Lewendowski from Mountain Lakes in 16:25 and Collete Richter from Mountain Lakes in 18:35.

Great job by all and we will be rooting for each and every one of you this coming Cross Country Season.
