Training heats up!

As the summer gets hotter the runs are getting longer! That's what you get when you train for fall marathons! In an effort to beat the heat we are starting this Saturday's run at 6:00AM! Bright and early!

Date: Saturday 7/30/11
Time: 6:00AM
Where: Fairview Farms Rd., Landrum, SC

Some of us have to run 10 miles, but come join us for whatever distance you chose to run. The route is an out and back route so you can turn around at anytime.

See you there!

Tuesday & Thursday at 5:30 a.m.

If you can't make the weekly Saturday run, try to join up with us at the Harmon Field track on Tuesday or Thursday mornings at 5:30 a.m. We don't always do track work...many do their workouts around Harmon Field or Warrior or Vineyard Rd. The point is, we are working out in the same vicinity.

Check the calendar below for more meet-ups.

7 Miler off Skyuka Road in Columbus

Hope you can join us at 6:30 a.m. tomorrow morning (Sat. 7/16). We'll meet at the Senior Center and try to get 7 miles in. Most are doing long, slow run, but any pacing is welcome!

The address for the Senior Center is 75 Carmel Lane, Columbus. Coming from downtown Columbus, take Houston Road (between First Baptist Church and the King Law Firm). At the fork in the road, stay straight onto Skyuka Road. Look for the Polk County Senior Center on the left (it used to be Carolina Classical School). We'll park there.
