Steps # Start slowly. In the beginning, don't tackle seven miles in a single run. Start with two or three and work your way up. For novices, runs longer than 10 miles will hurt you, for more experienced runners, more than 16 miles in a run will do more harm than good. # Run with a group!. This cannot be stressed enough. If you're in high school, join your school's team. It's extra important to find people of a similar skill level, so you can push and support one another. A coach is helpful too. # Always warm up and stretch. A warm up should be a couple of laps to a couple of miles, depending on how long you have been running. After you have warmed up, stretch. Stretching will prevent or lessen your chances of injury. # Do different exercises. Make a schedule for yourself and make each day different. On one day, do your long run to improve your stamina. On another day, do some hill repeats. # Always Post Stretch It is more important to stretch after you run than before you run. Stretching after you run prevents injuries. # Do push ups and sit ups every day. This will strengthen your upper body, which is also vital in a race. Start with fifteen push-ups and twenty-five sit-ups and work your way up. # Become friends with your cross country team, even if it seems like they hate your guts..you're a team, and you'll really like each other. Tips * Some people prefer to start out fast. By starting fast, you will end up running ahead with the top ability level runners, and there will be less people in front of you, which is both encouraging, and prevents you from being boxed in. but taking off too fast is a very bad thing to do. For every second you take off too fast in a race you lose 3-4 seconds on your over all time. You should try and find a good race pace for you to use and every race make your race pace a little faster. * Keep thinking, "It doesn't matter how I feel now because it will all be over soon." * Keep consistently training because if you let yourself drop, you'll be sorry. * In the late fall and winter it is cold outside which is not motivating and you may drop, so go to your local fitness center and run on the track or treadmill. * It helps to run with music to take your mind off the pain, like an iPod. Make a playlist for cross country consisting of upbeat songs to make you run faster. Avoid running to the beat if it's too slow. * Alternatively, think about your running pace. Learn what it sounds like. Focus on the sound of your feet hitting the ground. Then, think about your breathing. How many strides does it take to complete a cycle of breathing (inhale and exhale). Think about how your breath and stride sound and fit together. When you really know this sound, concentrate on the rhythm to help you ignore pain, keep up your pace, or have something to reflect on. * On the verge of giving up? Think of a song in your head and mentally hum it. * Listen to music when you run. * Drink lots of water to stay hydrated. However, don't drink too much before running, as it will often cause cramping. * Bring a banana to eat after a workout or race. The sugar in the banana will be quickly absorbed by your body, restoring your energy. Also, the potassium found in bananas will help prevent cramps. * If you must practice on roads try to stick to the grass or the road shoulder as much as possible. It's easier on your joints and safer for you in case of a fall or an oncoming vehicle. If you live in an area where grass or road shoulders aren't available, work out on a track, and see about visiting a local park a few times a month for a change of scenery. * Varied workouts are key to having fun and maintaining your motivation. Even if you like slogging 12 miles a day for a practice, mix it up! Change routes if you run on roads, run laps around the town park or playground, or play games like tag, capture the flag, or deer and wolves in place of sprint workouts. Obstacle courses can also be fun and you can scatter workout stations like push ups or squat-thrusts between the obstacles.

Nadia Originally Answered: Traveling out of the country with a baby?
No you do not need a letter from the doctor. What you need is a letter from the child's father if he is not traveling with you authorizing you to leave the country with the child but without him. It needs to be notarized. Vaccinations should be up to date as much as possible for a 6 month old. You should take the shot records with you in case there is a problem that you need to go to the doctor/hospital. Use only bottled water if you are formula feeding him, or water that you have boiled yourself. Do not drink from the tap. If you have a passport you do not need his birth certificate or his SSN card. You should in fact not take those originals with you because if they are lost or stolen the child's identity can be stolen. You should have the numbers written down and a photo copy not just of his but yours as well. 6 month old's travel better than adults. They will sleep through most of the flight, make sure he is sucking on something (ie bottle, pacifier) during take off so that it can help his ears. Make sure you have diapers and several changes of clothes in his diaper bag. Have a few toys with you as well and food for the baby. Have sun block, hats, etc.. for the child and yourself. They can usually adjust quite easily.

He will need a passport to fly from the US to Mexico. He will also need notorized permission from his biological father. Up to date immunizations.. and keep in mind, the water in Mexico is not going to agree with your baby.. so bring along pre mixed formula etc. Even bottled water (which should be available from you hotel) may not be agreeable with a baby that young. I would bring a copy of his immunization card just in case. If your baby gets sick in mexico.. this would give the doctor a heads up.

You haven't given enough Information on your ability are you a beginner ? Have you ever run cross country before? If you a beginner you will have to start slowly as you don't want to burn out before the end of the race. Running cross country is harder than road running. You'll have to take shorter stride lengths but this means you have to increase you leg speed. The only way to improve is just to do more running do more hills in your training sessions. Relax while running, don't focus on your breathing too much your body will naturally pick a rhythm it's happy with. Running isn't easy you have to train your body but your body learns quickly to training and you will improve. There is also a link you may want to read up on http://www.wikihow.com/Run-Cross-Country
