LNC Posted June 22, 2012 Share Posted June 22, 2012 My daughter ended ballet lessons after 7 years and started running instead. I'm so thankful she is absolutely loving it! Phew! She is training for her first 5k in the early fall, but she wants to start improving times after that and consider training for longer races. I looked up running clubs for youth in our area - AAU etc. They meet far away or had different agendas than what we were looking for. No homeschool running groups around either. We can't participate with public school teams in our state. What if she registered as an individual with USATF and signed up for cross country open events on her own? Is that a problem? She subscribed to Runner's World and will research how to improve times on her own. Does sound like a good plan for a high school runner or does she absolutely need a coach?
