For coffee we thought we'd try something a little different to see it will work…we'll convene for coffee at McDonalds on Douglas (here).  There should be plenty of room for us!
Lets hope that summer comes soon!

Well it has been one beautiful week!!!
With that being said we decided that we would hit the South Side Bike's paved so it shouldn't be too messy. (park here)

Enjoy the weather while it is here...only 2-3 more months before spring!  ;)
On a seperate note -- I'd like to work on updating the race results page for 2011 (since I have nothing up there yet) -- please email me if you've run a race this year, which one, date, your time, and race report if you have it.  Thank you!

Colleen E – Race Report – Red Rock Canyon

Red Rock Canyon ½ Marathon – Las Vegas
March 5, 2011
Time: 2:13
Unofficial winner of the prego division
Race report: This was an absolutely gorgeous course that I would highly reco for anyone looking to do a full or ½ marathon.  The field size is relatively small (~1000), but the race was really well organized and run.  For us flatlanders, the combination of hills (you climb 1000+ ft in the first 5 miles) and elevation make it an extremely difficult course, so probably not a place to get a PR, but worth it if you want a challenge and some beautiful scenery.  I personally had to do a lot of walking in the first 5 miles, but that seemed pretty common.  Even my husband, who finished in 1:46 walked a bit and had 2 of his miles splits at 10+ minutes despite averaging just over 8min/mile overall.
