In my 2nd season of division one Cross Country running at Oakland University, coach Paul Rice took us to a camp for a hard week of training.

Here are some of the things I remember from that week of pain:
  • We had a talent contest where everyone had to display a talent
    • I decided that I wanted to use my DJing skills and played a famous piano concerto behind a piano as I goofed off like I was playing it for real
    • I cant remember everyones skills, but we started indoors and ended up taking it outside where people got up on this stage.  Billy any help here?
  • When we first got there we did a long run into the woods and overlooking this bluff was one of the most beautiful swamps/lakes I have ever seen in my life.  I was in awe.
  • We did a cool workout where we all raced as a team kind of like the great lakes relay
  • Some people went skinny dipping I think.  Not sure
  • I was DJ Willuz all week, cause I brought my portable MP3 player and some computer speakers that I returned at Meijers later.
  • Kevin D. and I had lots of talks about how the team was always dicks to him.  He and I always confided in each other because other people werent always the nicest people to both of us.  Especially to him.
  • On the last day we did a hill workout running up and down the sand dunes.  It was soo difficult and challenging.  And in the end people jumped into the lake.  (Some people jumped in completely naked too)
Next to band camp, this was the most fun I had in a camp in such a long time.  I got into ultimate shape and it was the best thing for that season because I ran a 27:50 8K!

So I only started running recently. My dad was my inspiration for entering races. I figured that I could do it if he could, being 27 years older than I am. So I signed up for the 8K race last year and my Dad and Dave as well as some other co-workers ran in the 10 mile race.

It was cool to go back to downtown Flint since I went to college there and to see so many people there. My Dad and I walked through the hotel where they were selling running accessories. It's amazing the things that they sell runners like nipple guards and energy jelly beans. I ate a nice pancake breakfast in the outdoor theatre and met up with Olaf and Dave, I think.

We waited in a long line for the bathroom at one point in the university pavillion and I think I remember some guy being weird in line. Dave, do you remember this?

Anyway, the 10 mile race started before my race so I watched my dad cross the starting line and then headed towards the car to get another water or something. It was cool walking the . . . Read More..

Original Memory Interview Question

Did you venture into any new sports now that more were offered?


His Response:

Yes, I started running in 8th grade in track and field and cross country.

In cross country, I remember naming myself shoeless joe, cause on my first race ever my shoe fell off and I kept on running.

Another opportunity in high school came along when my brother convinced me to join football.

The week we learned all the plays, I was ironically learning all the plays for our show in band camp.

So I never knew where to go and what people were doing in the play.

A lot of learning experiences through new sports.

Her Response:

I actually quit playing soccer in 7th grade b/c it interfered with softball. I started playing volleyball in 8th grade which I am still extremely active with nowadays! Thanks Tereze for talking me into trying out for the team!!
