Sunday August 12, 2018
It was a HOT start to the week. Everyone gathered in the shade until we had to get going. I had run challenge magnets to hand out. Tammy said that when she took cupcakes home last week for our 80th celebration, Evan asked if it was Mike’s birthday we were celebrating. Lol!!! Ten showed up but there was no sign of them when Mike and Tammy finished the route. We had 11 at the run on Wednesday night, 2 who will be celebrities soon. A writer from the Shelbyville News saw my post about our 80s celebration in honor of Sara and Larry, and now they’re going to be the stars of an upcoming article. The Shelbyville Cross Country team was out on the course so we got to see Matt Baker and Mike Fox. A couple more stars whose celebrity status started right here in our group! 😉 We had 13 on the circle Saturday morning. Mindy was there to get her run challenge plaque and her first magnet. Great job Mindy! In fact, I believe I have handed out all the magnets to those who signed up and met the goal. If you think you should have a magnet coming to you, please contact me. Mrs. Hunton failed to show up on Wednesday for her birthday but we had high hopes for our treats on Saturday morning and then she handed out head lights. She claims that this is to keep us running safely for another year until she can redeem herself and come up with a good birthday treat for next year. I’m expecting it to be EPIC friends!
Training: Well I didn’t hear any suggestions for new meeting places, so I don’t want to hear any complaints when I set the locations and the routes. (Just kidding!) Monday at Morrison Park at 5:00PM. Wednesday at Kennedy Park at 5:00PM. Saturday on the circle at 7:30AM.
Racing: There’s a race in Greenfield on Saturday morning. You’ll see some familiar faces at the finish line running the timing machine. (Note: This is not an E2A calendar event, so it will not count towards your Saturday attendance.) There’s also a 5K at NIFS, one in Columbus, and one in Speedway.
Run for the health of it!
