What's Next?

Here we go.. while still way behind on pics I have a few from last night at the Bears Den.

Several new members... some who've been waiting quite some time, finally received their Team R.E.D. Tee's and had their official welcome pic taken!

Please welcome Chris, Alex and Shane.   Alex and Shane have been with us for a long while, but both claim they never got the blog-cred. Chris on the other hand, officially joned us after he dominated me in the Beer Mile, which in turn means,  he super dominated Eide!

Welcome Chris! 

Welcome Alex

Welcome Shane!  Nice mullet! 
The good looking people all seem to find each other... 

Randy sets an early scorching pace leaving all behind... 

It doesn't look likeanyone is too worried about catching Randy either...

Matt keeping it positive, and getting a 3 mile walk while he recovers! I got to talk his ear off!
The Next Few Opportunties...

Tuesday / Wednesday / Thursday

We're past due on a Thank You to one of our Sponsors!  Thank you to ServiceMaster of Rochester for supporting the Team R.E.D. Bus to the Torchlight 5K!  The trip was wonderful, and your support is what made it all possible.  Individually, Thanks to Dan and Amy for all the work they put in getting it organized!  Great fun!

Along with a great post race celebration, Team R.E.D. fared very well in the race itself!

Women - USATF Torchlight
2nd Place in the Open division (top 5 score)
5th Place in the 40 year old + division (top 3 score)
4th Place in the 50 year old + division (top 3 score)

Men - USATF Torchlight
5th Place in the Open division (top 5 score)
2nd Place in the 40 year old + division (top 3 score)
7th Place in the 50 year old + division (top 3 score)



Here's the lowdown for the next few days.  It's been a busy time around our household, I hope to get caught up on some pictures eventually, but for now, I can provide the details of what's up!


  • Tuesday 6pm: TerraLoco Charity 5K continues!   I would expect to see the vision of community involvement continue and thrive under the new ownership of Tiffany Piotrowicz.  Please continue to show support for our TerraLoco, still locally owned, locally operated, and community driven!  
    • For anyone who hasn't heard, as of July 31st, ownership is changing hands to Tiffany, as Brock & Darrell have sold the business.  I suspect you're going to see the Run USA/Minnesota brand continue to thrive as well!  
  • Tuesday 6:15pm:  The trail crew is making their way to the Great River Bluffs State Park.  Wendy and I have camped here, it's spectacular for hiking, running and comes complete with great, scenic views!   Plan on 5 miles or so.   It's an easy drive, located just off of I-90.   Meet at the first parking lot to the left past the park office. 
  • Wednesday 6pm:  Speed work on the track in Byron.  The foot turnover doesn't get much better than this!  No matter how fast you are, or how slow you think you are, this type of work out makes you better.  Join us! -- the track is located behind the Middle School in Byron. 
  • Thursday 6pm:  Team R.E.D. is heading to the Bears Den in Byron, join us!  Routes of 3, 4 or 6 miles available and as always, a good time inside the Bears Den afterwards! 
We are still seeking volunteers for the Team R.E.D. water-stop at the Healthy Human Race on Aug 22nd.  Please email Tom at byron.teamred@gmail.com if you are interested in helping out!

Helene Neville cruises through Byron on her way around the perimeter of the U.S.A.   This is her final leg of the journey which she'll complete in September.  Whew.. that's a long time to be running, and often alone!   - She did make a comment about how she only  has 1760 miles to go, and that resulted in 10 push-ups for minimizing the distance... Thanks to Lauren Nepstad for doing the pushups with her!  

You can read more about Helene's challenge and mission at http://www.oneontherun.com/

We made it! 
We escorted her to the County Line... our group stopped there to avoid any possible parole violations
