Great Weekend... and here we go again!

The Med City Marathon was a highly successful event! So many of you were part of making it that way.  Running and volunteering seem to go hand in hand for this group... and you do them both very well!

It was most certainly a day of friends helping friends.. check out some of the pics below, stolen from Mr. Woo's facebook. Thanks for capturing so many great shots Tom!  

Lorelei and Gwen heading to victory! 
Marilee celebrates 26.2 miles of Pauline's first marathon! 
Dream Team takes 2nd Place in the relay!  It would appear the women need to step up their game when it comes to running shorts!
Wait.. that can't be the Dream Team in the pic above... as Chelsie and her crew had Dream Team stamped on their shirts!  The Real Dream Team!   

Andrea celebrating the run to the finish with her team of Meagan, Sarah & Tohnia!

Jim, Lana, Mike and Anna celebrate their great relay!  

This volunteering is tough.... (I don't know the guy on the left, but Jill, Cathy and Adam are working hard!)

Dance off!

Ryan brings his relay team to victory! - (he was mistakenly announced as the full marathon winner, before they realized he was a relay guy!)

If you ever wonder how Tom runs so fast.... just watch and believe, he's a machine!  And he didn't get those legs from sitting on the couch.   
I have been sworn to secrecy as to who was the Byron Bear and the Team R.E.D. mascot.  Yet, they both represented well!  Below you'll see the Team R.E.D. mascot is making sure everyone in a Toga arrives safely at their destination... escorting them home.


There was a light turnout at Monday Maniacs,  likely because so many of you were at Med City events this weekend... it's so great to see the support for that event!  

Here's what's up the next few days!  

Tonight 6:15pm - The Trail Crew is going on a Quarry Hill Quest, meet at the Tennis Court parking lot and get 4-5 miles on the local trails.  Mase would like to remind you, there's no need to worry about your pace on this run, as the group with run and stop to take in the view from time to time. 
Wednesday 5:30pm:   The speed session takes place at Soldiers Field this week!  Tom has planned a few fartleks, before heading to the hill for some repeats.  It's a nice combination of speed and strength. 
Thursday 6pm:  Team R.E.D. rolls back to WildWood Bar & Grill... Weather permitting, another nice night on the patio! 
Friday 6pm:  The 3rd Annual Donut Run!  Come out and give it a go... if you are afraid of the donuts, just run, or volunteer.  It's a fun event with music, prizes and great energy.  All you can eat donuts on the course, and of course, hot dogs at the finish!    Just $15 for adults, and $10 for kids... optional moisture wicking tee for an additional 10 bucks.  You can register online at http://rochestertrackclub.com/main.asp?SectionID=3&SubSectionID=28&ArticleID=558

Something fun to view to kick start your week... Jen found it and shared it on facebook. I found it certainly worth watching!
