Tracking Reggie & Home Hosting!

Reggie continues his journey from the border of South Dakota to the border of Wisconsin..  during his planning for this trip he navigated the route, and talked to people along the route, to see if they would allow him to park his RV in their yard for a night..   well, last night, I received a message from Wendy's aunt, and she said "Reggie Oeltjen is parked on our farm!" - she discovered the connection when she visited his blog... and you can follow his journey on his blog as well at    It is further proof that good people find good people!

The Summer Home Host Season is upon us! Please see the information provided by Dan Mesenburg, as he so kindly volunteered to coordinate this years home host schedule! Thanks Dan!


Hello Team R.E.D.!!! It's Home Host Time!
I will be coordinating the home host schedule for this summer. We will be at the Bears Den on the 1st and 3rd Thursday (and a 5th if there is one once in a while). And on all other Thursdays June - Sept we hope to have a home host. 
As a home host you provide something (like burgers, beer, etc.), you tell everyone else to bring something (like whatever you want them too which might include beer), and you set the theme for the evening. Routes of 4 - 6 miles for runners and walkers. And I will be able to answer any questions. It's that easy! I will update this post as names get assigned to the dates:

June 8
June 22
July 13
July 27 - Morgan's
Aug 10
Aug 24
Sept 14
Sept 28
IM me on FB or email me at if you have a date you want!


Here we go for another week of fun!

Monday 6pm:  Monday Maniacs are heading to Wildwood Bar & Grill... this is a fun location to hit the trail system and enjoy some great company while out for a Walk or Run! - Don't forget to stay for the social... that's where the really good stuff happens! 
Tuesday 6:15pm:  The Tuesday Trail crew is on their way to something new! - Forestville State Park is the scene for the fun!  Meet at the park office at 21071 Cty Rd 118. Join the adventure with our teammates of the SE MN Trail Runners! 
Tuesday 9pm:  The Night Owls are heading back to the Douglas Saloon... meet at the parking lot in Douglas along the Douglas Trail.. get your out and back run and hit up the Saloon for the social!  They went here a couple of weeks ago, and reported it as a fun stop! 
Wednesday 6pm:  Speed work on the track in Byron!  This is something that scares people a bit, but it doesn't need to.  Everyone does what they can... and we all get a little bit better!  Join us! 
Thursday 6pm:  Team R.E.D. is getting our steps from Brothers Bar & Grill.  Please be sure to park in the back, and we'll do the route talk there.  We'll get out for 5-6 miles or any distance you you like, and come back for the fun!

What's up this coming weekend?  The Med City Marathon of course!  I'll get out a bunch of details regarding this weekend, and Team R.E.D.'s involvement in the next post.

Team R.E.D. can still use volunteers at our Expo Booth... email Tom at to let him know if you're avalable!
