Going to miss my weekly runs with Andrea Rich.  Our TNB Meteorologist is moving to Nashville Friday morning.  She’s plenty excited about blowing this burg and getting down to the heart of Country Music.  I’ve gotten to know her pretty well over the last 9 months and will miss her wit and juevos.  She calls them Exactly as she sees them and if you don’t agree too bad for you.  A trait I admire in a Real Person, no phoney baloney, what you see is what you get.  If you are a friend of Andrea’s we are having a going away party tomorrow evening at the Upstream Legacy, music provided by our old buddy Mark Weber, starts at 7:00.

With that in mind we will start our Wednesday Night Track Work at 5:45 tomorrow night.  This week we play!
1-1.5 mile warm up
We will break into 2 groups (check the whiteboard for your assigned lane)
2 miles of “Indian Running”, if you’ve been to the track the last 4 years you’ll remember this as a Fun workout, if you are new you are in for a treat. 
1-1.5 mile warm down

Wow did Jose Badillo impress at the National Senior Games.  His Silver in the 1500 was followed up by a Gold in the 5K and a Bronze in th 10K.  We are darned proud that Jose chooses to wear the Red & White!

The annual Ralston 4th of July Run will once again roll through the hills preceding the parade.  Always some decent times for the tough course, I think I’ll go whoop up on the 50+ age group.

The 6th annual Swamp Stomp 8K XC Cajun Festival is scheduled for Oct. 22 out at Chalco Hills.  The very next Saturday (the 29th) is the 5th annual Monster Dash & Little Goblins Run presented by Vala’s Pumpkin Patch.  The Monster Dash will feature a new course that will extend the distance to a full 5K.  And we have some tricks and treats in store for everyone!

Gary Wasserman and I share a competitive spirit, his came with talent as a bonus.  Good guy that I hope keeps racing towards his true  potential, even if that does take the top spot in Our age group.
