Thanks to everyone who came out for St. Pat’s today. It was a beautiful day.
The Post Race Situation was one the reasons why we train with people and run races instead of just doing our own thing all of the time. A lot of people hung out after the race at Kildare’s telling stories and having a beverage or two. This is the real reason that a lot of us go to races for the camaraderie after the race.
So, next time that there is a big race in town, get a group together, run hard and then celebrate afterwards. It doesn’t have to be at a bar. It can be at a diner or getting ice cream.
The next big races are in 2 weeks(3/24). They are the St. Agnes 5k on the Downtown loop in the morning and the Run 2 Remember Richie 5k at the West Goshen VFW in the afternoon(that one features a great post-race party). We’ll look for you at one of them.
BTW, what ever happened to the WKs? I haven’t seen one of them at a race in a while. It would be nice to rekindle the TM vs. WK rivalry in 2 weeks. It’s good for the sport.
Here is this week’s training(BTW-we have some people getting very fit. Come join us on Tuesday mornings at 5:50 at Henderson).
5k/10k/Broad Street Group-Tuesday-3-5 x 1200 w/200 jr at 10k pace. Friday-5 x 2:00 w/2:00 recovery on the Fern Hill Loop starting at 5:30 from Henderson. Saturday-8-11 miles starting at 6:30 at the Country Club.
