This week...

It's only January and the racing is on!  Wow.. you are all amazing!  Here's what I know, and I'm sure I've missed some things, so please email me at if you've done a recent race and we didn't hear about it.

Securian Winter Half, 10K & 5K... a bunch of members were participating, including Andy, Chris, Ann, Diana, Ryan, Tom W, Sonja & Gwen....   a few of the highlights I found are below, but I would stress, this is one heck of a fun event, and one to take part in the future! ....
  • Woo was 1st in his age group - 3rd overall in the 5K!
  • Gwen was 2nd in her age group - 10th female in the 10K!
  • Ryan was 5th in his age group - 11th overall in the 10K!
  • Diana was 5th in her age group - 8th female in the Half!

Lori was in Austin Texas and racing with some of her many great friends!   Here's a shot of Lori and Jean sporting the Team R.E.D. like rock stars!


By all accounts Austin rocked it! 

The Rochester Track Club Banquet was held on Saturday night.. and Team R.E.D. members were present demonstrating a great crossover between the clubs.  See some of the shots below.. it was a fun evening!

Sonja wins Outstanding Service Award!
Jean wins outstanding service award (presented by Dave).. Both Team R.E.D. members
Mason announces a winner with Julie (Both R.E.D. members, we still owe Julie her shirt!)
Shelly presents Dick with the Runner of the Year Award.  She did a great job!
R.E.D. engages the guest speaker and family.
 ** Olympic Trials competitor Chris Erichsen spends some post banquet time chatting.. he was a very good speaker, and has accomplished a heck of a lot!  Very inspiring story. **

Monday Night 6pm:  The Maniacs are heading out from WildWood Bar & Grill.. do not follow Randy F to find the place, he was a little misdirected.   Wildwood is located on the backside of the Ramada (near the TJ Maxx Plaza).   * if the trails, sidewalks and roads are still icey, consider wearing some form of yak trax, spikes or other gripper *
Tuesday Trail 6pm:  The Trail run plan has not yet be unveiled.  Check back for details.
Wednesday Track 5:30pm:  Get on the indoor track at RCTC.  Last week we had a bunch of runners at various paces, let's keep the mo-mo rolling!  
Thursday Team R.E.D. 6pm:  location TBD... making some calls on a new Rochester location for us.  Check back!
