Sunday September 17, 2017  LET'S GO COLTS!

Hi Runners! 

We had 9 to start off the training week, and Mike wasn't one of them. It seems that the trend is to reach 100 then miss a run. That's what he and Sara have done. We'll see if the next one follows suit. We had another week of beautiful running weather. We had 8 on Wednesday night. It was threatening rain but we lucked out. Sara learned a new word. Go ahead and ask her what it was and what it means. lol! It was a small group on Saturday morning and no one ran the Saturday route. In fact, I hopped in my car and drove over to Clearwick Park to test run a new route. Mrs. Hunton ran from home and on her way back, she ran into Amy Rumple. Since I was running on that side of town, I saw them as well. Did you know Frank and Amy are relocating and leaving THIS weekend??? They are heading south and will land in Georgia. I think I can speak for everyone when I say we will really miss Amy (and Frank! lol!). Safe travels and best wishes for your next chapter. Come back and join us for a run soon! 

In other news, Larry has had some recent health scares and is not able to drive for the next 3 months. He is still getting some evaluations to know exactly what is going on. Please keep him in your prayers. We're hoping his daughter can bring him over to join us for a run when he is feeling a bit better. And we just might take the run to him sometime! 

Training:  Monday at Loper at 5:00PM. Wednesday at medical building on Rampart at 5:00PM. Saturday on the circle at 7:30AM. New routes are taking shape. They won't start until October 1, but the Wednesday route from Clearwick Park is ready to be marked and the new Saturday route is ready for marking. Both routes will give you a chance to walk at the end (or you can make Wednesday a 5K.) I just got an OK for the Monday night route. We will meet in Bear's Den parking lot. Now to make a route from there! 

Racing:  Saturday is the annual Mill Race full, half, and 5K in Columbus.  

Happy 45th Birthday to Me on Wednesday!

Happy Running!

Marsha

Mike's Running Tip:  Why has no one invented a mint that when crushed inside the mouth turns ice cold?
