Week 4 – Two Shades of Grey

(1) Good job on a hot long run last week. Although it cooled off a bit Sunday morning, it was still a run smack in the middle of a heat wave. About 15 or so showed up, some decked out in their favorite race shirts, and each of them powered through a tough run.

(2) Thanks to Kristen for hosting the SLR BBQ last week. It was a great time.

(3) I won’t be around Sunday morning, but Lois will get you all started and through another good run.

(4) The run this week is the rare running of the Horn Pond route. A summertime favorite not to be missed. Check the route maps for details.

(5) The theme this week: Monochrome. When I ran my first marathon my mom asked what I would be wearing so she could spot me. My answer was “black shorts and a white singlet… like 20,000 other people”. So this week dress like a penguin, or like a police car, just keep it classically simple in your best Black & White, Ebony and Ivory, Salt and Pepper themed clothes.

(6) Water Stops: Lois will post more about this…

(7) Roll Call, who’s in for this week’s run?
