Nutrition

Fuel for the Athletes.  It is important that athletes at every level eat correctly.  Think of the athletes body as an engine.  If you supply the engine with the correct nutrients (fuel) the engine should be able to perform at its optimal level.  Fueling your body constantly with products that do not allow the engine run efficiently will only allow that athlete to perform at a constrained level.  Basically your performance depends on what you eat.  Below are a few articles regarding nutrition for running athletes.

 

 

SAT and ACT

Two of the most common four year college entry exams are the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) and the ACT (American College Testing).  There are two different types of SAT Exams.  SAT I is composed of writing, reading comprehension, and mathematics.  SAT II Exams are based on subject matter.  Check the college of your interest to see if it would be in your best interest to take SAT II.  The ACT is another college entry exam that some colleges will use in addtion to the SAT to extend their acceptance of you as a candidate for their college.  Below are the websites that have test dates for either exam.
