When Stanford’s track and field squads head to the University of Washington this weekend for the MPSF Indoor Championships, the individual goals of the different athletes will vary depending on where they stand with respect to the nation’s leading times. While some will be striving to continue to improve and potentially set new personal records, others will be trying to make the push into the top 16 in the nation in their events in order to qualify for the upcoming NCAA Indoor Championships. And the others that are already in the top 16 of their events will simply aim to race a solid meet, score points for the team and solidify their times.
Coach Milt has really encouraged us freshmen to keep on our normal routines, even though the coaches won’t be around as much.

Hey all. Yesterday was even quieter than Tuesday for our program here at home. The morning distance crew practice was comprised of Will, Garrett, Thomas, Luke and myself. Starting from the track around 7:20 a.m., we headed out going west on Campus Drive towards the hospital, eventually connecting with Junipero Serra and then onto Alpine Road.
Hey all, my name is Cameron Miller and I’m a freshman distance runner on our cross country and track and field teams here at Stanford. I’ll be writing daily practice updates this week, previewing the upcoming NCAA West Regional and hopefully showing you guys a behind-the-scenes look at our program.
