I hope everyone enjoyed that nice 20 mile course last week. That was a perfect set-up for a relaxing down week. These weeks are always built into schedules to give participants a much needed break from the long distance pounding. Traditionally, I recommend that you speed up the pace a little on these short runs to simulate a race day scenario. So let it rip this weekend. Continue with the walk breaks, but just push the pace a little.
This week the marathon group is running 13 miles with the mini marathon group doing 10. Here is the route for this week.
At last count, I have 25 people confirmed for registration into either the half or full marathon in St. Louis this fall. We still need 8 more to make this costume thing a reality. Send me a note to firstname.lastname@example.org if you decide to join us or to confirm that I have you on the list.
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.
