Saturday July 29th

All, I have not heard that a decision was made on where we were going to run next Saturday (July 29th). In Jud's absence, I would suggest we run at Colonial Park (STARTING POINT - ROUTE), at 7 am. If one of the marathoners would let me know what distance you are running I can put water out at the lookout on 6th street, or further out on Erie. I assume that you will be running the bike path behind the Case office building and up Erie (That is the course that has been used in prior years for the long run from the park) Please let me know if this suggestion is OK.



Perfect - if you put water where it usually gets placed that would be great - it is my intention to start at 6:00 - run some miles and then meet back at colonial for another 6 miles if anyone is interested. I am hoping to get 12 miles in this day.


I'll put several water bottles at the top of the hill (I'm not sure where the regularly are placed) before I go to Colonial (at approx 6:45 am) so you might not have them available for your first pass since you are leaving at 6.

Cemetery Run

7:00 AM meet at the parking lot of the old Piggly Wiggly on West Blvd. just north of Washington Ave (MAP HERE.)

This should be a shady run and the parking lot can be the water stops. Those preparing for the Chicago or the MCM can extend the run along the bike path.

I will be in N.C. but I will see you all the following week. I hope we keep the mild weather for the running. This weekend was difficult to say the least.

If someone lets me know what you select for the week after next, I will get the notice out next Tue.


I will try to get a few routes up when I can properly access

Saturday July 8

Armstrong Park.

(map here - meeting point/parking lot)

7:00 AM.

Sad to say, but I think the MCM and Chicago Marathon build up starts this weekend. In fact we are two weeks late to start the Hal Hingdon program. The joy of training in the heat to race in the cold. Actually, I wish I were joining all of you.

Have a safe and happy 4th.


I forgot to mention. Carol says to bring a lawn chair. She has a 30 cup coffee maker and we will just have coffee in the pavilion.

My apology to all. I will NOT be @ the Armstrong Park 7 a.m. run and therefore will not be able to provide coffee. Perhaps someone else has a lg. capacity coffee maker or someone else could pick up mine to us for the a.m. OR maybe it will be an alternative coffee site.

FYI-I will not be sleeping in on Sat. Rather, the Bellweather Communications-Paddle Pullers group will be competing for Dragon Boat bragging rights @ 8:30 a.m. Let's go RALPH, KRISTIN, RICH and ME!!!!!!!! And thanks Mike for your generousity.

See you all next Sat.
