Wednesday Workout, Pancakes and Donuts!

The Wednesday workout poll is now closed.  We are doing a speed session on the track in Byron at 6pm.  The track is located behind the Byron Middle School, 601 4th St NW.

For this first workout, it will be 300M repeats with 100M recovery.  You should be running your 300M at your 5K pace or faster.  Don't know your 5K pace?  We'll help you set a goal pace.. but you really should race a 5K and find out the answer to your 5K pace!

Track workouts are much like hill workouts, in that, no matter how fast you are, you are always with the group as we're all in the same space.  Do not be intimidated about trying a track workout, we all run to our ability, recover and do it again!


The annual Pancake Breakfast for JDRF is on again!  It's April 18th at the Bears Den in Byron.  They are so good to help us with this event.  The Den donates 100% of the food and labor to make this happen!  All of your contributions go entirely to JDRF, the leading funder of Type-1 Diabetes research (aside from our federal government).   

Once again, Randy Quint has stepped up to help us incorporate the long run from the RAC to end in Byron!  If you'd like to participate in that journey from Rochester to Byron, we'll make sure to transport dry clothing for you (assuming you provide a drop bag)... to the Bears Den, so you can run to the Den, change, and enjoy!  Randy is once again providing an aid station 1/2 way between Roch and Byron... amazing work he's been doing for years!   

You've been great supporters in the past, and if you can again, we sure appreciate it! If you can't make it and would like to contribute, you can join Megan's Roll & Stroll team and make a contribution at the following site  http://www2.jdrf.org/site/TR?fr_id=4744&pg=personal&px=1006122

I know many of you will be in Boston at the time of the Pancakes... we'll be cheering for you from Minnesota! 


The Donut Run online registration is now open.  http://form.jotform.us/form/50926536282156

The event benefits the Byron Cross Country program and we use the funds to take a 4 day / 3 night training trip to northern Wisconsin. It's a critical part of our training in the early season, and a wonderful reward for these young athletes who put so much passion into the sport!

I love Cross Country!  Please consider participating, donating or volunteering!  Thank you much!
