Meet our Run Leaders

Eddie Carden(Rockstar) has been running ever since his ex threw away a perfectly good white boy.  He has ran a dozenish marathons or halves.  His goals are to lose a toenail, perfect his award winning calves and smoke his competitors. His goal race this year was Pumkin Holler, but I think he didnt make that race this year.  Ed wanted to be a run leader because Kathy gave him something and he felt that needed to be paid forward. He leads the 10 - 11 half group.

Long Run

The leafs are turning and the nights are longer and the world is just cooling down...  Which means all of us who have trained hard during the sweltering heat are getting faster and running longer.  There are several great races coming up.  The number one being the Half and half, if you haven't check it out its 1/2 road 1/2 trail and has the best bling of any race out there, or at least its a very close runner up. 

But its definitely my favorite time of the year to run long.  This weekend is the Mock Marathon so all of you who have trained hard for Route 66, have a practice stab at the route. Come join us! If not just enjoy the cooler temps and run long.

Witch & Moan

Our third annual Witch and Moan family 5k was another hit!  It was great to see all the Kiddos in their costumes.  WE had blast with the costume contest, the trick or treat zone and the 1 mile, 5k and haunted wood runs! 

The kids had a donut grabbing contest and pumpkin mock up, along with running either the 1 mile or 5k all while getting candy.  If you missed out, we give prizes to age catergoeries for the best costume.  And to our volunteers we give a cash prize to best trick or treat zone.  So if your up to either challenge come out and play with us next year!!

Early Morning Runs

Its so early. But the few and faithful are here with us running on this cold damp miserably early Tuesday Morning. Come race day they will know what its like to overcome a wide varitey of discomfort to achieve thier own personal goal. Why, you ask? Often race is this picture perfect event, it could be rainy, overcast, overhot, or just super cold. Sometimes races start in the wee hours of the morning. We, the few, who are truly dedicated to teaching our bodies to perform need to run at different times, run in the rain, the cold, a blizzard or an inferno. Doing the unexpected prepares us for race day and all the surprises it can hold. So dont forget there is a group that meets here at the store at 5:20am to run by 5:30 on Tuesday mornings. See you next time, and remember just RUN.
