It’s STILL January. What’s up with that? Amiright? So pint night will have to wait until next week. Nevertheless, this Wednesday is one of our most popular runs: Route #5: Walking Bridge. It’s always fun to run across the bridge and through downtown. But running downtown comes with a little bit of extra traffic. So, we implore you – please cross the street only in crosswalks and intersections (NEVER in the middle of the road or darting out into traffic), stop at stoplights, and slow down and use caution at intersections. Please be respectful of and courteous to pedestrians on the sidewalks downtown. Remember that when you run with us you are representing our organization – and that our club’s safety, reputation, and standing in the community is a responsibility you share in. Thanks for doing your part!
We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm. We run every Wednesday – rain or shine, hot or cold. You can READ HERE for more details on how our Wednesday night runs work. If you are a run/walker and/or want to get a head start, meet at 5:45pm and join our Lasty Nasty Group.

Half Marathon Training
We had a great Saturday running our 5K Time Trial for our Half Marathon training group. Your 5K time is a great piece of info to use when planning out your training paces and finish time goals for the half (or other races). The McMillan Running Calculator was updated last year – check it out at https://www.mcmillanrunning.com. There are also a few different calculators on Runner’s World at https://www.runnersworld.com/pace-calculators. Don’t forget that our weekly Tuesday night speed workouts begin next Tuesday – February 6th. 6pm at out usual 11th & Holly location.
It’s not too late to join our free training group – get info and sign up on our Half Marathon Training Page. This Saturday we head to Percy Warner Park for some hill-tastic fun in one of our city’s best treasures! Be sure to keep an eye out for any flying monkeys… There’s also a potluck brunch after the run!
