New Members Rock!

Ready to Roll! 
We had four new members join us at the Bears Den tonight.. that's awesome!  - Truth be told, two of them officially joined Team R.E.D. at the TerraLoco Resolution Night, one joined Saturday morning during Off Season Striders, and one joined tonight!  - Sometimes it doesn't matter how you get it one, just that you get it done!

Welcome to Jill, Lance, Shannon and Kasey!

Shannon Joins Team R.E.D.! - She'll be a great new member, and she's preparing for her first half marathon!
Tom might have been tip-toeing, it's hard to say for sure. 

Jill & Lance Join Team R.E.D.!  - They are crushing it... we'll like them too!  

Kasey Joins Team R.E.D!  - but she couldn't stay for he shirt presentation. There's a story here.. see below... 
Kasey had once asked 'What does it cost to join Team R.E.D.?"  and I replied with $20.. then some time passed by and she asked again, "What does it cost to officially join Team R.E.D.?" and I replied $1000 ---   Well, after some negotiation, she got it done!  The picture doesn't do it justice, but that's $20 with a Kidney in a Specimen Bag!

  • Saturday 7:30am:  Off Season Striders  are at Newts North. What a fun location!  The Marathon / Half Marathon training long runs from the RAC will kick off Feb 14th so this is one of the last official Saturday OSS runs. 
  • Saturday 9am:  The Wilder Foot Race is set for Spring Valley.  The route is roughly 21 miles and unsupported, bring your own hydration. Consider having a great time on a this no frills event.. get your long run in with others along the wonderful terrain near Spring Valley.  
    • To Register simply email  There is no fee to register! 
  • Sunday 8am:  Off Season Striders at Panera South.  The Sunday morning OSS runs will continue with rotating locations even after the long training runs kick off. 
  • Sunday 1pm:  Team R.E.D. Hike at Oxbow, meet at the 1st bridge (2nd parking lot on your left as you enter the park area).  The snow is not behaving, so we're going to hike!  Of course a football game is coming up that evening, so we'll get our trail workout in, and be back in the lazy boy with plenty of time to spare. 
Look a little bit ahead, and The Frozen Goose 10K/5K Run/Walk is coming up on Feb 7th!  It's a great fundraiser put on by the Optimist Club.  Details can be found at
