So it's cold and rainy today...remember the first step is the hardest, then it gets easier from there. 1/2 Marathon Training

Long Runs

If you look under "Sunday Morning Runs" you can see a copy of the three training plans.  It also gives you the location of each of the Sunday morning runs.  And while there are no more Sunday runs in 2009, we start at the crack of 9 a.m. on January 3 in Shelby Park.  See you there!


There are two options this year.  Every year, Fleet Feet sponsors track workouts during the winter and summer.  The sessions have slightly different focuses, but both will make you a drastically better runner.  The winter speed sessions focus on 1/2-marathon type training, while summer speed focuses on shorter races (1 mile to 5k).  Winter Speed Sessions start on January 26, and meet every Tuesday through April 13.  Get more information and sign up here!

This year Chuck Hargrove has offered to lead runners through fartlek and tempo workouts on Thursdays.  He will be following the suggested workouts from the training plan, and will meet on at 6:00 in Shelby Park.

East Can

Thanks so much for those who donated to make Christmas happen for a local family.  And don't puppies make great Christmas presents??   Check out the adoptable animals.

West Side Christmas Party

I know it's dangerous over there, but our friend (and former ENOW) Hugh Mundy is hosting a Christmas party tomorrow night (december 19: 7 till midnight) at 1921 19th avenue south.  Cost of entry: a non-perishable food item that he will give to the families of his clients. (Hugh is a federal public defender.)   Everyone is welcome!
