Saturday & Sunday!

A whole lot of Off Season Striders this Saturday & Sunday.

Saturday 7:30am... gather at Panera South and head out on the trails for a great group run, and come back for coffee and fun!
Sunday 8am...   the Lace Up Against Breast Cancer course trial is taking place.  We'll start at Mayo High school, and cover the course.  Race Director John Shonyo will be there, listening to feedback of the course.  
Volunteers are still needed for the Lace Up Against Breast Cancer Half Marathon and 5K on Feb 10th!   Drop me an email if you want to volunteer at the water stop, but also, they're looking for field marshals!

Thursday night Team R.E.D. was fun... with about 15-20 members heading out to brave the chill!  Several others joined post run... for more of the fun!

We had the opportunity to learn a bit about Bolder Options - an organization that matches mentors to at-risk youth (ages 10-14) for a mentorship program with an emphasis on fitness and healthy choices!  The picture below has Lindsey and Nick, they shared the mission of Bolder Options with us. 

Right now, the Rochester Bolder Options has 26 mentors matched with young people, and they have a waiting list that goes on and on... there's a real need for additional mentors in this program, particularly on the men's side of things. If you'd like to learn more about the program, contact information is in the picture below as well.
