Moving Fast!

Time is flying by... and there are so many fun opportunities ahead!  -- There is not a scheduled Team R.E.D. Run for Thursday Dec 24th.  - If anyone is planning a run, just let me know and I'll share it... but otherwise, we wish you a very Merry Christmas!

Saturday provided a whole lot of Team R.E.D. time!  We started with a great turnout at the Annual Team R.E.D. / OSS Christmas Run and Breakfast -- Followed that up with a bunch of R.E.D. members attending a wonderful surprise party for Adam at Forager -- Followed that up with so many R.E.D. members hitting the North Star bar to continue the celebration and see Kasey perform with Nite Shift!  What a fun day with great a great team!  -- there are pictures from the day floating on Facebook.. I will try to post some at some point!

Note:  If you didn't know about the surprise party, it means I don't have a valid email address for you.  Please let me know and I'll be sure to update your email.  

New Facebook Groups to Check Out

We have a new runner moving to Byron this week... her name is Emily, and she's started a Facebook page for Morning Runs in Byron! -  If you're interested in connecting, check it out at

David has been part of Team R.E.D. from the beginning, and he's started a Sunday Morning trail group.  If you want to be in the know with the plans of that group, check it out at

I will also try to communicate the group runs from these two... as long as I am in the loop.


Monday 6pm:  Monday Maniacs are heading to Cowboy Jacks on South Broadway in Rochester.  Join us for a few miles of running or walking, and head back for peanuts, beverage and food if you like!  The social is always fun!
Tuesday 6:15pm:  The Tuesday Trail Crew is heading to Carley State Park.  This park is a great gem in our neighborhood.  Log some miles while allegedly hunting for Santa's Reindeer!  Plan to join the post trail social as well!


There are a couple of fun races coming up! -

  • Jan 2nd:  Polar Bear 5K Prediction Run - This event is not won by the fastest, rather by the person who can best predict their finish time.  You are not allowed to wear a watch, or anything that helps you track time.  
  • Jan 9th:  Winter Race Series - the 5K series enters the 2nd race of the three.  It's not too late to join the series as it's a three race series, but your top two times are what count in the scoring.  So even if you missed the first race you can get in the action now!  --   Also, you can run this race as an individual event, and not worry about the entire series!    More info found at
