During the last 3 years that I have been the team parent for Cross Country Eva has helped me at all functions from banquets, to fundraisers to team dinners. I could not be the team parent with out her. Recently Eva has taken on the boys cross country breakfasts and nutrition. She has and continues to make breakfast for 30 plus boys 5 days a week and get’s it to the school when they complete their morning run. Along with breakfast she sends nutrition information to the boys and parents. Currently Eva is the only parents that is making breakfast as well she always volunteers for every event we have. We have a small team and even smaller amount of volunteers. Being a working team parent I don’t know what I would do without Eva.
Eva has been helping our athletes improve the nutritional component of their training. She has taken the initiative to help “refuel” our athletes after their 6:00 am workouts, so they can perform well in the classroom. As our Boys Cross Country Team continues to rise in the ranks division 6A schools, the nutritional component of their performance is very important. As a former world-class squash player in her native country of Norway and a trained nurse, she knows the importance of nutrition as it correlates to improved performance. Our “team mom” Danielle Al-Tayar and Eva have both been instrumental in helping the boys on our team by arranging Pasta Nights and now Oatmeal Mornings. Eva recognized the critical need for the morning refueling and took the initiative to make it happen. Now all the boys are getting replenished with calories after their morning workout.
