Go Mankato Participants!

Mankato Marathon events are this weekend...  I know of a few running, two of whom are running their first marathons!    Go Jeremy and Carrie!  You got this!   Others running the half include Judy, Sue, Shay and Jill...   rock it all!     If I'm missing someone, please let me know... I'd love to recognize the efforts and results! 


Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday all got handled!   Team R.E.D. members found their spots and got it done!

Tonight on the track, we landed a new Team R.E.D. member!   Becky has been doing a ton of the track workouts, and tonight she officially joined Team RED!   Welcome Becky!    Below you'll see her rocking toward the finish of the TC Marathon.   She's got plans for the next... will be fun to watch! 

You'll see another glamour pic of her when we do the Team R.E.D. shirt presentation!

Becky hammered the TC Marathon.... and now joined Team R.E.D.!

Thursday 6pm:   Team R.E.D. at the Bears Den.   Keep in mind, Active PT is coming to see us!  They will offer some stretching suggestions, and are happy to chat with anyone looking for some advice on recovery and whatnot.   Oh... they also plan to help with the bar tab.. gotta love it!

This weekend...  as mentioned above the Mankato Marathon events are taking place.  Locally, there are also group run opportunities, along with a couple of races!

Saturday 7:30am:  Gather at Newts North along Hwy 52 North for a run with the Off Season Striders.  This group meets every weekend, and typically runs anywhere from 5-8 miles (any distance is considered ok!)  
Saturday 9am:  Tour De Essex 7K Trail Run:   Entry Fee is just 5 bucks and the results are timed.    Experience the rolling hills of the Essex Park trails at the Tour De Essex. Enjoy the trails used for hiking, running, dog walking, and cross country skiing.   You can get more information at
Sunday 8am:  Get over to the Peoples Food Co-op at 1st Ave and 6th St SW for the run and fun with Off Season Striders !  Meet near the patio.
Sunday 6:30pm:   Nightbeat 5K and 2 Mile staring at Soldiers Field in Rochester. This is a fun race and/or walk that raises money to, build and sustain a memorial to honor officers killed or who have died in the line of duty in Southeastern Minnesota.


The USA Track & Field Prelim results are available for the TC 10 Mile...  Team R.E.D. just keeps on kickin' it... the most notable of the results are related to the Men's Masters division... Team R.E.D. took 1st Place in our Division! 

Congrats to Chris R, Tom W and Tom O for cashing in the results to make it happen!   Chris's 7 Minute PR in the race surely helped seal the deal.  

When results are final, we'll post them all... along with Team R.E.D.'s overall standing vs clubs throughout the state.
