Hi Runners! We’re officially in our new training season. We met at our new Monday location to kick off the week. Also on Monday, I heard from Scott Patton. He sends thanks for the birthday card and the Shelby Roadrunners hat. Needless to say, he does not need the hat where he is but he’ll need it when he returns to Indiana running weather in December, January, and February. He’s counting down the days to his return. We had 9 show up at the Parks Department for our new Monday night route. Everything with the route seemed to go well. There’s a little traffic to deal with, but I think we have that everywhere. Always be careful, and please use sidewalks on McKay Road or run single file when necessary. We had 6 at the run on Wednesday evening. Shelbyville High School Cross Country team was out practicing, so Matt Baker stopped to say hello and check on Sara. What a great kid! He’s having a good senior year on the team too. He’ll turn 18 later this week. It was dark and cold Saturday morning! I think we’ve all been ready for a cool down, but Saturday was a bit extreme! Still 8 showed up for the run. Some were sporting their new Shelby Roadrunners hat or headband. If you missed out on ordering one but wish you had, let me know. I’ll place another order soon if there’s enough interest.
Training: Monday at Parks Department at 5:00PM. Meet on Meridian Street side. Wednesday at Blue River Park at the shelter at 5:00PM. Saturday on the circle at 7:30AM.
Racing: Thursday evening there is a 5K in Broad Ripple. Saturday is the Purdue half and 5K. There is a Haunted Hustle 5K Saturday evening at Jordan YMCA.
Run and Smile!
