Hey everyone, glad to be writing again from the week off. Well Hurricane Sandy pretty much spoiled having Cape Coast Conference Saturday morning but we were able to have it Monday after school. Coming into the race we definitely had a lot of confidence that we would defend our title from last year.

Cocoa Beach senior Cory Sayyeau breaks down the week that was in a segment we like to call In His Own Words.
Well this has become a habit writing about how poorly I've been doing! The one thing I can take out of it is that I"m not giving up and I still have faith in myself to have a chance at state.
Hey flrunners. First off, congrats on hosting another amazing meet this year. This week what can I say our team is very odd when it comes to trying to run everyone well at the same time.
Everyone calls it a mud fest and that’s putting it mildly. At the Fleet Feet Invitational at South Fork, I cant even explain the amount of water and mud on the course! Coming into the race, this week has been a solid week of training and the team is still working on closing the gaps. We have an eighth grader Sam Addington who has been putting in so much effort in practice and it is paying off a great deal for us. Heading into the race we looked to bring everyone closer together.
No big meet or far away trip this week, just a local fun meet. This week going into the race we knew our chances of performing really well against the rest of the local competition was good. Even though we were missing two of our top five we still had the same mind set to win the meet.
Hey everyone, I’m sure Flrunners page views have sky rocketed after this first week of the cross-country season! Well, I started my senior season at the Wickham Park Jamboree last weekend running 16:31 and then Katie Caples happened.
Hey everyone, back again writing and just before the season kicks off. The past few weeks have been a little shaky for us. Since we train in the afternoon we’ve been getting rained out so many times. Those days are usually our work-out days in which I already ran in the morningso I just do another six miles or so on my own since there is no practice. Due to that, leading up to the Wickham Park Jamboree we didn’t have the best couple weeks.
The Cocoa Beach boys cross country team just missed the top three in 2011. The squad finished 17 points behind Berkeley Prep to finish fourth. The Minutemen return five of their top seven runners from last year including senior Cory Sayyeau.
Hello, Florida Runners! The name's Cory Sayyeau. I'm out of Cocoa Beach, and I'll be giving you guys the inside scoop throughout the season about what happens on the Space Coast side of Florida.
