**Please note I will not be able to attend on Saturday but I do reccommend it!
If you would like to run with this group-here is the information:

The next group run is scheduled for Friday-3pm. Remember we are meeting at the main doors at the Student Center-We will wait till 3:10 (10mins late-if we know to expect you).

Keep spreading the word about the Kent State Running Club! I love getting emails from people who are interested in joining!

Okay so now it's time for the random link of the day-it's a good one!

  1. Is anybody thinking of doing the Saturday Oakhill run? Or does anybody think it will be too icy and recommend not doing it?

  2. I don't think it will be too icy. The sun is out today so the run should be really ice tomorrow morning. -Sara

  3. Thanks Sara I'm going to do it

  4. Thanks Sara it was awesome! You were missed but I said you had to do cpr refresher. Have a good workout whenever your next one is - knowing you that will be today plus 4am tomorrow or something :)

  5. Yeserday's workout was a lighter one. I went cross country skiing in Kirtland and today I have been 'putting off' my long ride outside. I had been hoping to ride outside putting in 80-100 miles but it looks like I have to reschedule it for indoors. I will probably get started here shortly!
