Word on the street is, the Securian Half marathon held on Saturday was significantly short! By many accounts, the Half marathon came in at just 11.7 miles! Way short! Crazy..
Below is a link provided by Tom Woo to some great shots from race day. I see there's a Casey sighting! Thanks Tom!
Below is a list of what's coming up this week and weekend. Opportunity abound!
Tuesday Night Track: Meet at the RCTC Indoor track at 5pm or as soon as you can get there... then turn up the speed! We've had seen a great turnout each and every week! Come on out and have some fun!
Wednesday Night Snow Shoe: Meet at Oxbow Park's 1st bridge at 6pm for some snow shoeing after dark! This group finds a way to have a good time, each and every time!
Thursday Morning Progressive: Gather at 5:30am at my home, 805 1st Ave NW in Byron for this 'fun' run! We start out at a 10/min pace for 1 mile, then each mile progressively increase the pace. It's quite the physical and mental workout!
Thursday Night Team RED: We''re at the Bears Den in Byron this week. We'll get together at 6pm for the route talk, then hit the roads! Wear something Spring Break like, as we're currently in Key West! (and waiting for our swimmers to get us over to Cuba! ) We'll have to load up the Juke Box with some Jimmy Buffet I do believe...
Saturday Morning OSS: The Off Season Striders' meet at 7:30am.. I haven't seen the official start location yet, but surely will update as soon as it's published.
