Saturday's Run

Looks like we are in for decent weather this weekend...but we did choose to run West Lawn - 90th St this week which means we are in for freezing rain, hurricane force winds or some other such nonsense based on our collective luck with this location.

Run at 7:00am

Coffee at Panera!


Some notable finishes at the Jingle Bell run this last weekend:

Jim L. 1st in age group and 12th overall!

Michael K 3rd in age group!

Susan B 1st in age group!

David P 2nd in age group!

I hope I didn't miss anyone -- please let me know if I did!

We could not decide where to run this week so we settled on an old standard: Panera Run

Routes here: Panera & Panera 2

Time: 7:00 am

Coffee: Same


From Jim:

Hey everyone,

I had a few people ask if I was running the Aid station for Ironman 70.3 Racine again this year. Yes I am and I know some of you helped out last year and if you could help out for again this year your help is MUCH APPRECIATED!!! 
I know most of you have done some racing and it's different to be on the other side once in a while. Plus you can cheer on some friends like Colleen & Greg. (Not sure if anyone else is doing it?)

If you could fill out the waiver and get it back to me as well as a T-shirt size so I make sure I get everyone the right size. There is an attachment about the Appreciation dinner as well.

If you know any kids that need service hours I would be more than happy to fill out their form. Also because I know it's a long day and if you can only work part of the day if you could let me know so we can plan accordingly.

You can give me the form in person or email it back as well as T-shirt size to phawkscc@yahoo.com or send me a message on Facebook.

Run Aid Station #2  
***PLEASE NOTE:  Parts of the 2014 run course may be changing. Ryan Richards is meeting with all local and county police and authorities on 6/19 to discuss changes to last year's course. I will have information following the 6/19 meeting on whether this will affect your aid station location. But, for now, it is in the same location as last year. 

8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. 
Volunteers needed: Minimum of 30

1) A few things--I have attached a copy of the volunteer waiver that I will need all volunteers to sign.  If you can please all waivers to me by Thursday, July 17, that would be wonderful.

2) Volunteer t-shirts this year, I'm told, are blaze orange.  I should have the t-shirts to me right after the July 4 holiday. As soon as I get t-shirt sizes from you, I will box up all of your group's shirts.

3) I have attached a copy of the invitation to the Volunteer Appreciation Dinner.

It is scheduled for:
Monday, July 21
Festival Hall 
6 p.m. 

All volunteers and their immediate families are invited. 

OK--I think that is everything for now!

If you could, please confirm with me that your group is all set for the volunteer positions above.  Your next step is to get those waivers signed and start gathering t-shirt sizes.

Thanks for all that you do to make this event a success!
