Congrats to everyone that participated this past weekend in the first leg of the Triple Crown, the Anthem 5K. We saw a lot of friendly faces out there. I also saw a lot of great finish times posted. This race is a great opportunity to recognize the “2 minute rule” regarding your pacing on the long runs. If you indeed pushed yourself to your limits then your race pace should be approximately 2 minutes faster than your long run pace on Saturdays. If you cannot create that 2 minute gap, then you may be running a little too fast on the weekends. Just a friendly FYI.
The mileage this week is 10 miles for everyone. Click HERE to view a map of the course. Don’t forget that next weekend (3/23) is the 2nd leg of the Triple Crown, Rodes City Run. Take some time to study the City Run race website for important information regarding packet pick-up, course info, restrooms, etc..
Don’t forget, you can still pick up your free pair of Smartwool socks at Ken Combs Running Store. They have a master list of everyone in the group. Stop by ASAP to pick them up.
Once again, I can’t stress enough the importance of recognizing our sponsors. Without these people, this program would not be possible. Here is a list with links for more information about each company.

Don’t forget to study up. Our sponsors have put together what we believe to be the most comprehensive Online Running Manual available. All of your running/walking questions can be answered in this manual. Use the link above to start enjoying this valuable resource.
One more thing, don’t forget to register for the Triple Crown and Mini marathon as soon as you can. The mini marathon in particular will sell out very soon. The longer you wait, the more expensive it gets. See the links below for registration info.
