Vote in Poll

Over to the right you will see a poll that we want all of you to vote in. Two reasons, first we get to see how many people are using this site, and second, just curious what meeting times work best for most of you. So please vote. Thank you.

The prize

Yes. A prize to the person (or persons) closest to their prediction. Maybe we can induce a few more intrepid souls to join us on that Thursday. I enjoyed meeting with everyone again. I even ran this time! OK, maybe it wasn't running in the classic sense of the word, but I was happy with it!!

Thursday Run

Here's a picture of those that showed up to run on the Greenway tonight. It's great having others to run with. Keep inviting other runners/walkers! Mac informed us tonight that our meeting on Sept 11th we will be having a 2 mile prediction run. No watches allowed! We will be predicting our finishing time and seeing how close our 2 mile run is to that. Bob insured us that there would be a special prize (right Bob?). Hope to see you all (and more) next Thursday.

Saturday Morning

Runners are reminded that the Saturday morning run at the state park is on trails. The group will meet at 9:00 AM. Pace is approximately 10:30 - 11:30 per mile. Bring a friend.

Saturday runs

We have a few different groups planning to run this Saturday, Aug 30th. The first one is meeting at Kunkel Lake (1st parking lot inside the State Park) at 7:50 am. They plan on running around 5 miles at 9:30-10:00 min/mile. The second group is meeting at Kunkel Lake at 9:00 am. They will be running around 5 miles also, at 10:30-11:00 min/mile (usually 10 minutes of running to 1 minute of walking). Feel free to join either group. If you plan on running and want to invite others, leave a comment telling when,where, and pace, then I can get it posted.

First Post

Welcome River Runners! I thought we would try having a blog to keep people informed of what is going on in the running community. I'm not sure we will all be able to post something, but please leave comments and then I can add posts for everybody to see. Currently Bob has running information on his Girls Cross Country website, click here. Until we get around to getting our own website, maybe this will help keep everyone involved. Last Thursday we had a great first night of running. We will be continuing that on for the next 3 Thursday, 7:00 pm at the White Bridge. Our goal is to meet others and see who might be running around the same pace. We hope that people will start running together and using this blog as a means to get more people meeting to run. If you keep leaving comments I can update the posts to let people know when and where people are meeting. Let me know how this works for you and we can always make changes. Hope to see you all on Thursday night.
