Thursday 6pm:  Team R.E.D. has a home host!   Join us at Kim & Gail's place at 1017 8th Ave NW in  Byron for an opportunity to run, walk or snowshoe!   (if you want to try snowshoes, but don't have any, come anyway, and we'll loan you a set). 
  • The theme is Ugly Sweater.. get them out, I know you have them! 
  • Our hosts are providing pulled pork sandwiches, bring your own beverage and if you like, a dish to share. 
Saturday 7:15am:   The Marathon Training long runs start again from the RAC.  This weeks run is scheduled at 8 miles, then it ramps up week after week to prepare you for a spring marathon.    You do not need to be a member of the RAC, or a member of the track club or team red to join.    Please bring $1 each week you run, to help pay for the gatorade, bananas and whatnot that is served by volunteers along the long run!

Too much fun!  A great number of people have been asking why the police were at our waterstop at Lace Up.... I think it's summed up here... (if you don't want to watch the entire song, listen from about 29 second mark to 36 seconds... it sums up why somebody in the neighborhood called the police to the 'scene'). 

We may have stumbled upon a new Team R.E.D. theme song!
