This week's run

It was a tough decision for this week's run -- this weekend is the Biggest Loser Half Marathon here in Racine so we wanted to pick a route a little out of the way of some of the festivities.

Colonial Park (park here) seemed like a good place.  Route Here

Coffee will be at Panera.

Running Request!!

Via the Racine Area Running Club (thanks Sara!!)

Vicki from Des Moines is looking for someone (or a few people) to run with on Saturday as she is training for Chicago and needs to get in 20 miles -- here is her latest email and I've included her in this week's email blast.

"Sara, I'm from Des Moines, IA and I e-mailed you awhile back about catching a long run with some Racine runners on Saturday, Sept 21. I haven't heard much from the group yet, and am still looking for company on a 20 miler that morning. Would you be able to re-forward my information to the group? I'm hoping there will be a few people signed up for Chicago (like me), who are also looking for a 20. Thanks so much, Sara!!!'


Vicki Vanderkwaak, LISW, CPCC, ACC"

Let Vicki know if you might be able to run with her at all on Saturday!  We all know that even a few miles of company is better than none!

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

This week's run

According to the Caledonia Patch Four Mile Rd will be open on Friday (here) lets hope that means the trail is passable on Saturday because we are running the North Bike Trail!!

Park just west of Douglas on 3 Mile Rd (map here) -- Route is pretty straight forward - see it here.

I did talk to the folks a Mocha Lisa so they should be better prepared for us this time!

See you all at 7:00am.

I for one will be starting a bit early but I might start from my home.  ;)
