September is almost here. You know what that means. Fall racing season is upon us. Hopefully you have kicked off your fall training. If you need training plans, please let us know soon so we can write them and you can get going!
Up next is the Panther Run benefiting Care to Learn. This is our next team race and we couldn't be more excited. There are 15k/10k/5k options so it's perfect for everyone. The 15k would be a great chance to see how your fall half training is coming while the 5k will be a great chance to work on speed. The 10k is a good chance for both! Plus, the prizes and giveaways are great. Care to Learn is a great organization and if you're not familiar with it, we encourage you to check it out. The event is held at the O'Reilly Family Event Center at Drury University. If you're up for it, we'll grab breakfast and coffee downtown after the race.
If you haven't heard, Boat Town Brewing is hosting the Barrel Aged Barley Run 15k and 5k on September 17 to benefit Nathan Cole. We have graciously been provided with a free entry. So, tomorrow morning is your chance to win it. We'll be doing a mile time trial. We have a list of the fastest mile you have run with us (in a time trial setting). Whoever improves the most upon their fastest time trial mile will win the entry. So, get ready and bring it tomorrow morning! We can't wait to see who wins!
Another fun tidbit - follow Coach Jamie on her training journey. Check out her blog here. You can also find her on Facebook here. Don't miss out!
We have been fortunate enough to have several new runners join us recently. We are so grateful to have them on board, and want to thank our current members for the warm welcome they have provided. Joining a new team can be scary, especially at 5am. So kudos to everyone :)
We'll leave you with this quote for the day to ponder and apply to your next workout. See you in the morning and happy running/training!
"The amazing thing about running is that many runners may run the same road, but no one runs the same journey."
