Miles full of smiles
By Jeremy Loudin
Joe Robinson was yelling to gather his group of runners. Dressed in slacks and a short sleeved collared and a ball cap on to block the sun out of his eyes, he instructed his group of runners to go for a 1 mile warm up as they prepared for speed work on the track.
“Man it’s going to be a hot one today I hope these runners drank plenty of water” he said with a serious face. “I don’t have time to deal with anybody getting dehydrated”.
Coach joe has coached at Etowah for 23 where he coaches year around for cross country and track. Coach joe has been running for over 30 years and has all the knowledge and experience for coaching.
“I started running when I was about 15” joe said with a big smile and Cajun accent.
“Ever since then it’s been a part of my daily routine, I always try to find the time to run at least once a day”.
“I just love bringing out the talent in some of these kids I mean some of these kids wouldn’t even know they could run as fast or as far as they could before I got ahold of them” said joe while chuckling.
Joe, a dedicated coach and runner himself, has ran over 30 marathons in his lifetime.
“Marathons are a true test of the body physically, and even more mentally” said joe with a concerned look.
“The hardest part about a marathon is trying to convince yourself there’s not that much left when you know that there’s 10 miles left”.
“I know I’m getting older and my running days are coming to an end soon, but that doesn’t stop me from getting out there and running”.
Joe soon gets surrounded by his runners that come back from their warm up, and their eagerness to get to work excites him. With a smile “well then it’s time for y’all to go to work”.
