First congratulations to all our members who ran any of the races at last weekend's IMT Des Moines Marathon. With the Des Moines Marathon race, our formal weekend training runs schedule is completed, but we realize many of you, who train with us, might have winter races or simply enjoy the social aspects of the training runs. We will continue the weekly training runs at Gray's Lake at 7:30 am with a few exception weekends. We will NOT be running regularly scheduled runs on November 20th (Living History Farms race), November 27th (Thanksgiving), and December 25th.
These training runs will be more informal runs than the Winter/Spring or Summer/Fall training groups. What this means is that while water will be cached along the route, you'll need to pour your own. There will also not be someone typically supporting the run besides laying out water and retrieving the trash afterwords. Route maps will be sent out through the weekly e-mail blast, and if you want a copy, please print it beforehand.
As such, it is highly suggested that you join the e-mail list for the training runs to keep advised of any last second changes. If you need to join the e-mail group for the weekly maps, please click here: http://visitor.constantcontact.com/d.jsp?m=1102591577404
One final word, if anyone would like to volunteer to help support these training runs, we always appreciate the offer of assistance. I hope to still see many of you out there Saturday morning.
