Just a few small items today:
1) I have placed the t-shirt order. I have ordered a few extras. 1-medium and 2-small shirts can still be available to purchase
2)As for the shirt order, it should take around 4 weeks for turn around and for me to receive them. THEREFORE-I will step up a small meeting most likely for 7pm on a Tuesday evening in Nixson so those who have ordered a shirt or want to purchase one of the extras, may in fact do so. That meeting will be around the end of Feb/beginning of March.
3) Saturday Trail Run! (And Sunday if you prefer!)
Lydia came out and joined me and the rest of the GGR Gang (15 or so runners) for a great trail run this Saturday morning. This upcoming Saturday, Feb 5th, I have to take a CPR Certification class at the rec center at the same time.
If you would like to run with this group-here is the information:
Saturday, Feb. 5 10:15 a -Oakhill Trailhead, multiple loops in the same area, choose your own distance and time, 1-2 hours. Bathrooms but no running water.
Sunday, Feb. 6
8 am Ledges Shelter. Multiple loops available, choose your own distance. Restrooms and running water.
Saturday, Feb. 12 10:15 am – Cover Bridge/Perkins Trail where Wheatley Road becomes Everett Road. Intersecting Loop Trails, 5 mile main loop. Bathroom, no water. ****I will be doing a light-light run this day because I (Sara Harper) am racing the 15k Run with your Heart race in the North Chagrin Reservation.
4) I heard we had good turnouts throughout the week! Keep up the good work and please post flyers I sent out from the previous email in your buildings!! What to run with more people?? Recruit!
If the snow, cold, and lack of sun (unless you stick your head under your desk spot light) is starting to get it you and ya could USE a little motivation--Read this article about Lisa Smith-Batchen. She is the urban dictionary's definition of committed.
All of us at some point, wore an old pair of shoes down to the bone...maybe you could poke your toe out which you explained as a great ventilation system, or you fell in love with a busted pair of flippy floppies that you could never part with-that is until now.
Foot Smart-Got Injury? Your everyday shoes can prevent injuries so why not read up not this article?
I leave you with quote from the late-the great-Steve Pre:
"A lot of people run a race to see who is fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more."
Don't slack. Don't make Excuses. Just Run Smart
