Hi Runners! The rain and storm moved out right at 5:00 on Monday evening. The ones who were there were rewarded with a king size candy bar given that the focus of our run challenge was the Monumental Challenge. We had 8 at the run on Wednesday night. The giveaway, in keeping with the idea of monumental (or big!), was a big bubble wand to each person. It was an innocent bubble wand, but with this group, NOTHING is innocent! Lol! It was raining when we gathered on Saturday morning. Wes stepped out of his car with an umbrella, and we all wondered if he’d run with it. Didn’t take long for the rain to let up but it stayed overcast. All in all, we had a rather uneventful summer run challenge week. I guess we got rain and heat which is typical summer weather for us. I will have magnets in the near future for those who registered for and completed the challenge. Let’s be honest, the last few months have been a challenge. I hope that you are finding some “normalcy” in life by hitting the pavement whether you’re doing it on your own or with friends. Hopefully we will all be back together again soon. I will commit to you that we ARE changing meeting locations for Mondays and Wednesdays on October 1 no matter what is happening in the world!

Training:  Monday at Parks Department at 5:00PM. Wednesday at Blue River Park at 5:00PM. Saturday on the circle at 7:30AM.

Racing:  Most are going virtual.  

Happy Birthday to Mrs. Hunton on Saturday!

See you at a run!

Mike’s Running Tip: In the winter they always say to dress like it is 10 degrees warmer, but where are the guidelines for heat index?
