Jonathan Dalby is one of the most successful coaching in the country. He had two teams qualify for the Nike Cross Nationals this past week. His boys earned a podium spot, finishing 3rd, while his girls team finished 6th. Only Fayetteville-Manlius had a higher combined team finish.
In this interview, which are excerpts from his full length interview on HighSchoolRunningCoach.com, he talks about the elements of success, such as being consistent and putting in the work. He then goes ins a discussion about team culture and not underestimating the social aspect of the team. Finally, he shares a guiding training principle of going from general work to more specific work.
