10/15 Run/Walk

Well fall is here and the trees have turned so why don't we head to Parkside and take in the colors.

Re: Saturday, July 30th

It would be in bad form if we didn't wish Tony a fond farewell.  Tony will be heading up to MN to take on a new job and a new running group.  We hope we will see him from time to time when he visits his friends here in Racine.  Maybe we will need to schedule a race in the Minneapolis area next year?!?!
Good Luck Tony!!

Do I rant now or at the end…decisions…you'll see my rant below the announced run.
Five people at coffee last week…decision was Panera…7:00am start.

*** Don't forget the Ice Age needs 1 more person to help out…please contact Bill ( if you can help out on Sat. May 14th (Bill is thinking about running the trails before set up of the aid station!)
Okay here is my rant -- not meant to be taken literally but at the same time I am perplexed:
What in the world were you 5 thinking?!?!  We just ran Panera the week prior!! 
We have 2 runs within 1 mile and 2 more within 2 miles of Panera…so why would we choose to do Panera again when there are 4 other viable choices nearby?!?!
Okay I feel better! 
See you on Saturday.
