Keep On Moving!

Several Team R.E.D. members were able to make it to Rachel & KP's place to enjoy a Pig Roast, and do some good for Channel One and the Women's Shelter.   Somehow I didn't get a picture of Rachel!  Shoot!

Rachel did report the event raised over $400 in donations, along with 186 canned goods, and bunches of toiletries!  Thanks to the Hammers for hosting the get together!

KP working the Hog! 

It rained a couple of times, and somehow Team RED members were the ones under the tent hosting the Keg of Beer!

Randy, Wendy, Gwen, Christina & Marilee (not pictured, but known to have stopped in are Mike and Sarah).  

Monday 6pm:  Monday Maniacs will beet at Dooley's in downtown Rochester.  They have a great patio, weather permitting.   Plan on running or walking anywhere from 3-6 miles, and coming back to enjoy the company!
Tuesday 6pm:  The All-Comers Meets in Rochester are full on!  -- bring your kids out to race some fun short races, long jump and enjoy the night! If you'd like to volunteer.. show up between 5:30 and 5:45 and ask for Gwen or Ann, they will find your job!
Tuesday 6pm:  TerraLoco hosts their weekly 5K for Charity.  TerraLoco is located at 1190 16th St NW (near Trader Joes').
Tuesday 6:15pm:  The Trail Crew will be getting out and logging miles at Essex Park!  The plan is to find a reasonably dry place to run... The miles will be wonderful and the people even better!
Wednesday 5:45pm:   Woo is once again leading a hill workout starting at Soldiers Field Memorial in Rochester. Meet in the parking lot by the memorial.  The location gives us a nice 3/4 mile warmup before the hill repeats begin!
Thursday 6pm:  Team R.E.D. hits the Bears Den in Byron.   A Thursday night run or walk is a great way to kick off your celebration weekend!
Friday 8am:  The Stewartvilled Summerfest races!  There's a 5 Mile and 3 Mile (and you can do both!).   Check out registration details at the following link
Saturday 7am:  The Marathon Training long run rolls out of the RAC.  I believe this week's mileage is 12 for Marathoners, and 6-7 for Half marathoners.   The long runs are open to everyone, you do not need to be a part of any club, or the marathon training class to participate.  Simply bring $1 to help cover the cost of Gatorade/banannas and what not, that are served along the run!
Sunday 8am:  Off Season Striders will be out and about - check back for details on the starting location.

 I just wanted to share a few of the fun things going on to promote this big event which is part of Mayo’s Sesquicentennial celebration and I thought you might want to know.  Please feel free to share this with friends and family. Thanks so much for all you do to help spread the joy of running and the fun of sharing the road with others.
