Caroline Johnson

[Caroline is perhaps the most focused athlete each year at Braz Camp. For more Edge, she often trains with a boys group at camp. She is a Senior at Marblehead High School.]


It was different having to check in before camp and bring a daily health form. There were fewer athletes and coaches onsite and the coaches were always reminding us to keep six feet apart.

I tried to incorporate more strength into my workouts and up my intensity during drills. I also did a lot of biking this summer and I think that has helped me.

Just being able to be onsite was the best! During quarantine I ran alone almost every day. I feel like running in a group helped me to push myself and get the most out of my training.

I started camp expecting we would run this fall. I was extremely disappointed when XC was postponed, but Coach Braz reminded me to stay focused on what I can control, my own training. I don't know what XC season will look like this year, but I feel ready.

This was my fourth summer coming to camp and I would have been really disappointed to miss the last summer of high school. We all work really hard but it's always fun. Every summer I take something new away with me and there has never been one morning that I would rather sleep in and miss camp.
