Long Past Due Update!

Best wishes to all those running this weekend!  Several members will be at the Get Lucky, and I'm sure they'll have a blast!  Send us pics!


As for this past Thursday, what a great crew filled with a bunch of new faces!  The service was interesting, but people seemed to have a great time, I think we could try it again one day!

Thursday @ Billottis
Alex and Kim join us for the first time! 

One of the many packs!

Enjoying the post workout... We just keep pouring into the establishment! 


It's been a fantastic few weeks of meeting new people! We have gained members at such a rate that our T-shirt supply dried up... the new shirts are already in process (along with the new singlets) and we're placing another order to keep up with the fun!  For anyone who has not received their tee's, we'll get them to you very soon!

By the way, each of you awaiting a shirt are receiving a car wash courtesy of Need's Car Wash in Byron!  It's a $12 value with the brand new equipment!  -  It's now part of the new membership award!


  • Sunday March 22nd is the Irish Run 8K... this is part of the USATF MN Championship series... Team R.E.D. competes with clubs across the state!  It's super fun, and super fast!  
    • Carpool / Caravan will depart from the Gander Mountain Parking lot, near the Kwik Trip along 55th St NW at 10:30am on race day.  email me at if you are planning to join that carpool so we can leave as soon as we know we have everyone on board!
    • Join us regardless of your pace... it's way fun to know you're in a competition beyond the race itself.  If you want to race for Team R.E.D. you do need to be a member of USA Track & Field.  
    • You can join USATF at the following link, and make sure you select Team 0435 - Team R.E.D. (don't get off track and accidentally pick Minnesota RED unless that's you're intent!)
    • What does a USATF membership get me?  Well, in my opinion the best thing is guaranteed entry into lottery races, i.e. TC 10 Mile, TC 1 Mile.. - there are also other discounts to many races!


Another upcoming event that is sure to be fun is the Return of the Robin Run!  They have added a Half Marathon to the already existing 5K & 10K!  Your race will end with a great post race party cpmplete with bloody's and beer, and don't forget Hairball at night!  


One of our newest members, Mark St. Peter is heading up a great opportunity for Team R.E.D. to remain involved in the community as volunteers!  I know so many of us enjoy doing just that, volunteering!  

Mark is leading our crew in the Making Rochester A Littmarkst.peter@cityautoglass.comer Bit Better campaign.  It's an impressive program reaching it's 9th year!  -- This years event takes place April 18th - 25th. 

A Litter Bit Better! Volunteers can be proud of their accomplishments over the last eight years. To date approximately 95 tons of litter has been collected in Rochester through this program. 

Let's make this a fun way for Team R.E.D. to contribute!  If interested, contact Mark at  so we can put in a bid for a section of Rochester!  Team R.E.D. members rock when it comes to volunteering!  - I bet we can find a way to celebrate after our good deed is complete! 


Are you going to the Boston Marathon this year?  If so, be sure to contact Jess, as she has made reservations at Cheers!  See her note below.. you can RSVP for the fun at 

For those running Boston, I would like to extend an invitation to join us for dinner at Cheers Beacon Hill at 5 pm on Sunday April 19th. We thought it would be a great way to get together while in Boston and hang out before the big day! There is pasta on the menu and quality brews. If you would like to join us, please let me know so I know how many to plan for (we currently have a reservation for 25). Join us for fun and good food at a place where we really do know your name!
