Tuesday.. Wednesday... Thursday!

What a night at Monday Maniacs!  It was super fun to hit the Douglas Saloon once again, and the host bar came through with great food and excellent service!  - We also received a wonderful gift for Team R.E.D. from Annette - I will get a picture and description on the blog this evening.

Here's a look at some more great opportunities over the next few days..   

Tonight 6pm:  Trail run at Essex Park in Rochester. See details from Mason below.   (note, several of us ran on the douglas trail last night, and while there is snow, it was definetly run-able.).
  • We'll meet in the parking lot at Essex park and deal with whatever mother nature deals to us. We started our season at Essex and maybe this will be our last run on the trails before transitioning to Snow shoeing
Wednesday 5:30pm:  Woo says get ready to get Footloose!  We're hitting the indoor track at RCTC.  It's free of charge and available all weekday mornings 6-8am... and evenings 5-10pm.  

Thursday 6pm:  Team R.E.D. hits Beetles Bar & Grill on 2nd St SW in Rochester.  Routes will hit the blog this evening. 

Friday 7pm:  Annette turns 50 years old, and you are invited to the party!  Gather at the Chms' home at 507 9th St NW in Byron, and stay until your hearts content!  - No gifts please.

Sunday Noon:  Mia tunrs 21 years old, and you are invited to the party!  Gather at the Bears Den in Byron for all the fun.. and stay until your hearts content!   - Keep an eye open, as we might plan a hike or snowshoe late Sunday morning.  

Be sure to scroll down to the Friday Dec 7th post to see what additional fun is ahead regarding parties and special running opportunities.  We'll also plan a spring fling once we get past the Christmas season.


Old race New date!  Check out the details for a Jan 5th Predict your time run.  It's fun, it really is!

Bear Creek 5 Predict Your Time Run Information


This race attempts to equalize all runners by staggering start times according to predicted finish times. You will predict the time you think it will take you to run 3.1 miles to the nearest 30 seconds.  The course is  a snowy, slippery route that follows the road and bike path. You are responsible for your safe speed and footing.  Hey, it is January in Minnesota!! 

 At 10:00 AM the slowest predicted time runners will start.  Every 30 seconds after that, another group will take off according to their respective predicted times.  The winner is the first person to cross the finish line.  EXCEPTIONanyone faster than his or her predicted time is disqualified!  Needless to say, no splits will be given and no watches will be allowed (an automatic DQ).
