Saturday's Run

This week: Parkside cross country course. Ugh. Those hills.
7:00 AM (Park Here)

I ran into Tom White and he assures me he will be walking this weekend. He had some excuse about being in Hawaii – as if that’s an excuse for not being with us these last two weeks.

Joe and Sara competed in last week’s Madison Half Marathon. This was Sara’s first race at this distance! They completed it in 2:00:35!!

Great Job!!

Sat. the 17th

Dare I try predicting the river will not be up so we can run the Colonial Park Run? Chance it I will. It’s my favorite run and we haven’t been there since the snow.

Saturday’s Run/ Walk: Colonial Park Park Here

7:00 AM

Good luck to those traveling to Fargo for the marathon. Drive carefully and we will see you the following week.

Saturday -- May 10 -- 7:00 a.m.

We will try something new. Reverse Colonial Run. The first part of the Colonial run may be a little mushy along the river so we thought we would try something new and run it in reverse. So meet at my parking lot (510 College Ave) and head down 6th Street to the bike trial and then run it in reverse until you wish to stop or you get your feet wet.

Last Saturday’s Races:

Flying Pigs Marathon-and-then-a-little-more-because-it-was-so-much-fun:

Bill Folk: 5:05:57
Kim Carey: 4:00:34
Yemi Bullen: 4:13:23 (first ever marathon)

For Indy half:
Mari Danzer: 1:58:19
Julie Veltus: 2:25:32

Good work all.

Saturday -- May 3rd

We neglected to select a route for this Saturday’s Run/Walk. I guess I will have to make an executive decision. It’s lonely at the top. Ore so when I realize nearly every weather prediction I have made this year has been wrong. So will go with and predict rain and declare we will run from the Lakeshore Towers to avoid mud on the bike trail. This may mean you should bring sunscreen.

7:00AM as usual

Many will be at the Flying Pigs Marathon and the Indy Half Marathon. Good luck to all of you.
