Emily Ernst

[Emily studies and runs at Essex North Shore Agricultural & Technical School.]


This year was different because we all had to wear masks before and after running and socially distance during runs. This is definitely different from past years and at first was weird but it became the new normal.

Yeah, I definitely did a lot differently this summer. I am going into my junior year which is crazy and I had a different mindset going into camp. I used to go just to have fun and of course I still have a lot of fun at camp but this year I also came in wanting to get the most out of this program and hopefully have a good season.

My favorite part of the onsite sessions was definitely being able to run with other people. Running alone can be difficult and being able to run with people three days is so nice.

I came into the program hoping that there would be some kind of fall season and I still hope there will be one. This camp always gets me prepared for the cross country season and this summer especially I am feeling strong. If we are unable to have a fall season I am still glad I did the program because I love the people and the sport.
