Jan 30 - 7 AM

To start with, I hope many of you were able to get to Dan DeMatthew's benefit at Roma Lodge. We were there at 5 PM and were stunned at the magnificent turn out. The support shown for our old running partner was overwhelming. What a testament to the spirit of Racine.

Saturday's Run: Wrath of the Aged. 7:00 AM

Meet at Goold and Michigan.

It will be a little chilly, but will be our last run on January. How soon will it be when we will be worried about the heat instead. Dream on, Jud.

Saturday's Run/ Walk and Roma Lodge Spaghetti Dinner

Saturday's Run: Church Run. Meet in my parking lot. 510 College Ave.

Coffee: Dunn Bros.

I hope most of you had a chance to see the Journal Times Article about Dan DeMatthew. The timing was perfect. Last Saturday afternoon as I sat in the barber chair I saw a post for a fund raiser for Dan. January 24, 11AM to 6PM there is a spaghetti dinner at Roma Lodge for Dan. Tickets are $10 for an adult, $5.00 for kids and kid under 4 no charge. This is a great way to show our support for our running buddy and have a good meal thrown in to boot. I hope all of us and our families will be able to make this event.

Saturday's Run: Panera. (Park Here)

If there is any chance of snow remaining however slight, those wishing to x-c ski meet at the Johnson Park Club House parking lot at 7 AM. If it turn out we can't ski, we can run/walk from there.

Here's hoping the snow holds.

Saturday's Run 1-9-10

****UPDATE for skiers: see bottom of this message****

This Saturday we tested the meaning of "Good to Go To Ten Below." The wind chill was -10 and 17 of us still showed up. The question remains, -10 absolute or -10 wind chill. Let's hope we will not be required to test that proposition this year.

Saturday's' Run: Kristin need a west location to fit her schedule. This is as far west as we have ever gone. We will meet at the West Lawn Cemetery. which is north of Washington Ave. at 90th Street (near Educators Credit Union new location on Washington). (Park Here)


****We finally have enough snow for cross country skiing. Anyone who prefers to x-c ski, meet at Johnson Park parking lot as we have done the past couple of ears. . 7AM.

I assume coffee at Panera's.

New Years Day Run

In years past we have run on New Year's Day so to start the year off with a few with New Year's Day being on a Friday and our regular run on Saturday you might be thinking "why not wait until Saturday...what's one more day?"

Do you really want to start off the New Year that way?

Neither do we.

Meet us at the Douglas Avenue Diner Friday at 8:00 am for a short run...and we will congregate at the Diner for coffee and breakfast (if you're so inclined) afterward.

Happy New Year!!!
