In Training

Thanks to those who joined us Thursday night for our weekly run. Most of us are training for an event--Hilton Head Half Marathon (2/7); Myrtle Beach Marathon (2/14); Mercedes Marathon in Birmingham (2/15) and the Cooper River Bridge Run in Charleston (4/4).

We made a few laps around Harmon Field at a comfortable pace on one of the prettiest winter nights yet--clear and about 40 degrees.

This group welcomes all levels from beginners to the seasoned marathoner. Bring a friend and come out for a fun run any Thursday night. We hope to add another weekly run as Spring approaches so stay tuned...

Beautiful Night!

Last night our group was small - only 3 of us but the cold calm night made for perfect running conditions. One person stayed at the track to work up endurance by walking and running and the other 2 went out to run the Warrior Drive loop. Out on the road we still had about 15 min of day light but then we used a new clip on tail/rump light as well as headlamps to safely complete the loop.

Cold Start

Welcome, everyone, to the Tryon Running Club blog site!

We officially started our running club last night at Harmon Field around 6 PM. Seven of us crazy adventurers braved the almost record breaking cold -- including a biting wind chill -- to run a few laps around the perimeter of Harmon Field. My car thermometer registered about 28 at 7 PM, but the 15-20 mph gusts made that worse.

Actually, it wasn't that dramatic. If we'd met this morning at 6 AM with 14 degrees and zero wind chill, then yes, there would be a story to tell.

We hope more runners and wannabe-runners will come out and join us each Thursday at 6 PM at the HF Track. The meeting date will probably change, but we'll keep this for now. If there is interest in a Tuesday or Thursday AM (8:30 or 9) meeting time, I can set that up, too.

If you're concerned about how fast you run, don't be. We'll break up into groups according to ability if necessary. This is mainly about having fun and meeting other runners!

See you soon!
