Saturday provided a whole lot of Team R.E.D. time! We started with a great turnout at the Annual Team R.E.D. / OSS Christmas Run and Breakfast -- Followed that up with a bunch of R.E.D. members attending a wonderful surprise party for Adam at Forager -- Followed that up with so many R.E.D. members hitting the North Star bar to continue the celebration and see Kasey perform with Nite Shift! What a fun day with great a great team! -- there are pictures from the day floating on Facebook.. I will try to post some at some point!
Note: If you didn't know about the surprise party, it means I don't have a valid email address for you. Please let me know and I'll be sure to update your email.
We have a new runner moving to Byron this week... her name is Emily, and she's started a Facebook page for Morning Runs in Byron! - If you're interested in connecting, check it out at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1723458954554515/1723827324517678/?notif_t=group_activity
David has been part of Team R.E.D. from the beginning, and he's started a Sunday Morning trail group. If you want to be in the know with the plans of that group, check it out at https://www.facebook.com/groups/884572344973734/
I will also try to communicate the group runs from these two... as long as I am in the loop.
Monday 6pm: Monday Maniacs are heading to Cowboy Jacks on South Broadway in Rochester. Join us for a few miles of running or walking, and head back for peanuts, beverage and food if you like! The social is always fun!
Tuesday 6:15pm: The Tuesday Trail Crew is heading to Carley State Park. This park is a great gem in our neighborhood. Log some miles while allegedly hunting for Santa's Reindeer! Plan to join the post trail social as well!
There are a couple of fun races coming up! -
- Jan 2nd: Polar Bear 5K Prediction Run - This event is not won by the fastest, rather by the person who can best predict their finish time. You are not allowed to wear a watch, or anything that helps you track time.
- Note I: If you run faster than your predicted time you are Disqualified!
- Note II: Team R.E.D.s Sonja directs this race, and if you're planning to run, it would help her greatly if you got registered now! More info at http://rochestertrackclub.com/main.asp?SectionID=3&SubSectionID=28&ArticleID=818
- Jan 9th: Winter Race Series - the 5K series enters the 2nd race of the three. It's not too late to join the series as it's a three race series, but your top two times are what count in the scoring. So even if you missed the first race you can get in the action now! -- Also, you can run this race as an individual event, and not worry about the entire series!
