Ryan created a Strava club for Willmar XC. Strava is a training tool that allows you to record and log your workouts. Workouts can be recorded with a GPS watch or with a smart phone app.
Strava also has a social media aspect to it. Any athletes that you 'follow' will appear in your newsfeed so you can see what all your peers (or heroes) are doing, and you can comment or give 'kudos' (equivalent to FaceBook 'likes') on workouts. There are a ton of really elite athletes that use Strava religiously and it is neat to see their daily workouts.
The Willmar XC group would be a private group for only our runners. Strava automatically creates a weekly club 'leaderboard' that lists athletes in order by weekly mileage. I think this could be a great motivator for kids to put in the miles when they can quickly see what other team members are doing and how they stack up.
