“As coaches we often talk to our runners about the little things they can do to be successful and, while they may listen to some of those tidbits, it makes all the difference in the world to hear them from a professional runner. Christo Landry was a phenomenal speaker, he was personable and spoke on the kids level giving them tangible advice about how everything from hydration and nutrition to prioritizing sleep. He spoke about how to mentally prepares for races and even helped the runners visualize our course for the conference championships. The kids cited his advice all week leading up to the race. Christo’s advice was priceless and I can’t wait to have him back next year.”
