Group runs continue

Even though many, if any, are not showing up on Saturday mornings for the group run, I would like to keep it set up the same time and place so everyone knows. It would be nice if more of us could make it, I think it would grow if people knew that somebody would actually be there. Is there another day or time that would work better for most people. When do you normally get your weekly runs in? Just because you meet as a pack doesn't mean you have to run as a pack.

Good luck to those who are running the Indy Mini this weekend, and all other races too!

Indy Mini Meal

Teri had a great idea (although I can't participate). She was wondering if anyone in the club would be interested in eating together Friday and/or Saturday night in Indy for the Mini. Please comment soon if interested so she can make reservations, which need to be made this week. Who all is running Indy this year?

Spring Training Run Results

The race on Saturday went very well with a total of around 106 runners, 18 in the five mile, the rest in the 10 mile. The weather was perfect and made up for the nasty weather we had for the WOOF. We were able to use the timing chips for the first time and I think it worked fairly well. I hope they worked out all of the kinks. The results are posted on runindiana.com (click link to take you there). The only complaint I have about the day is I forgot to take my camera. Did anyone get any pictures of the day? I guess the next race we have planned is the Firecraker 4 mile in Fort Wayne on July 4th (did I get all that info right). We have decided against trying the Bluffton to Berne to Bluffton relay this year, unless somebody could take it over to plan it. Hopefully next year we will be able to work something out. After that, it's the Parlor City Trot, and the WOOF to round out the year. I have enjoyed the Ouabache River Runners and think everybody else has too. Good luck with the rest of your training, whether it be for the Mini or another race. Keep on pressing on!
