Sunday, May 28, 2017 Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
Beautiful sunny evening to start our training week. Jeremy showed up for his first run with the group in quite awhile. Steve ran the Loper route for his first time. It was a soaker on Wednesday night. Six runners showed up, but I don't think anyone did the full route. We had 7 on the circle Saturday morning. Welcome to Andrea who joined us for the first time. It was overcast but the heat and humidity reminded us that it's May in Indiana. Don't forget that Farmer's Market is in full swing, so bring your money and do a little shopping after the run.
Update: I had a Mrs. Hunton sighting this week! lol! She came to yoga but had to leave her shoe on. Still has some pain when walking but she's slowly on the mend.
Reminders: Shane and his family are fundraising for the Diabetes walk in September. Elaine is fundraising for Muscular Dystrophy Association for her marathon in Chicago in October.
Training: Monday at Loper at 5:00PM. (Yes, we'll still be meeting even though it's Memorial Day!) Wednesday at medical building on Rampart at 5:00PM. Saturday morning on the circle at 7:30AM.
Racing: There are a couple of races on Monday for the Memorial Day holiday. There is a one mile race in Franklin at 9:00AM. There's a 5K in Fishers at 8:00AM and one in Terre Haute. Thursday evening is the Monumental Mile downtown Indy. There are several races on Saturday including some trail racing opportunities and a variety of distances.
Mike's Running Tip: People who run 200 laps around the circle are sure to make a spectacle of themselves.
