Long Runs and 10-Grand!

Big News! Like $10,000 Big! 

For those of you who are not on Team R.E.D.s Facebook page, or are simply haven't heard this yet - I'd like to share a piece of great news with you. 

Team R.E.D. has been selected to receive a $10,000 grant for a fitness initiative!  The Byron Community Foundation and Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation are the funders of the dollars - we are so grateful to receive this award and apply it toward a mission of fitness for all! 

More details as to the fitness initiative will be shared after we physically receive the funds!  I will be seeking volunteers for various roles within this initiative... stay tuned and dance! 


  • Saturday 7:15am: Here we go for... just in time for your long run training for spring Half or Full Marathons! - the longs runs start and finish at the RAC (Rochester Athletic Club).  This weeks run is set for 8ish miles.  Half Marathoners will have a shorter run.  
    • Keep in mind, Saturday's RAC runs are supported with volunteers providing water, gatorade, bananas and what-not.  If you're ever interested in volunteering please contact Lin Gentling at
  • Sunday 8am:  Off Season Striders are running from Five West (near Costco).  There are a lot of options as far as how far or how fast you'd like to run.  Then be sure to come back for coffee and/or breakfast! 
  • Monday 6pm: Monday Maniacs continue feb-BREW-ary! Check back this weekend for details as to which pub is the spot! 
Check back later this weekend for information on the entire week ahead...
