Torchlight & TC 10!

I've heard a few stories about the Relay Iowa...looking forward to more!  339 Miles of smiles!  Nice work for the Team R.E.D. crew!

Monday 6pm:  Join us tonight at Kathy's Pub for Monday Maniacs! 6pm for a run or walk.. come back for the social! 
Tuesday 5:30pm:  The Rochester Track Club hosts the All-Comers 1 Mile on the track at John Marshall.  This is a FREE event... and the kids races follow.  If you're interested in volunteering to make the kids races roll, please contact Gwen at as it takes a lot of people to make this event a success! 
Tuesday 6:15pm:  The SE MN Trailrunners are rambling around the Root River Park! We'll gather in the parking lot... see link to find your way.
Wednesday 6pm:  Speed work on the track in Byron.  I'm planning on a couple of 1-miles at marathon pace, then calling it a workout. You can join me, or we'll come up with a workout for you! 
Thursday 6pm:  Team R.E.D. is at the Bears Den in Byron. Join for routes from 3, 4 or 6 miles and circle back for some beverages at the Den! 
Saturday - Grandmas Marathon or Half Marathon!  The long runs are returning to the RAC starting on June 25th.
