Greetings Winter Runners; Week #22

There are still some running long, and/or starting their taper for BOSTON, BIG SUR and other races.

If you are getting psyched for the upcoming Spring and Summer activities, you should get some inspiration from the ATTACHED VIDEO, sent to me by a fellow USAT coach.

There are a number of our group heading for the Frederick Marathon on Sunday, 3 May.  If you are interested in carpooling, reply and we will start working out details.

Also, STEAMTOWN Marathon is way in the lead as the destination race. I will give another week for voting, then start making preparations.  You can see the status on the Bluepoint website.

Wednesday Track Session -   This week we will do 3 x 800 + 3 x 400 at Up Tempo pace with 1 minute rest.  I will be there.  We have some extra shirts if anyone wants additional shirts.

Saturday Run –  This will be a recovery run for some, a maintenance run for others, and the start of Taper for other.  The base mileage is 10 miles.  Tom N., and Cris are going long.  If you are planning on doing longer mileage, let me know so we can arrange for support.  I will be scoring a race in Quiet Waters Saturday morning, but expect to be at the Food Court by 11 am. 

Sunday Trail Run –This should NOT be a tempo run.  You ran long on Saturday and do not want to overdo it Sunday, even if it is on the trails. If you are up for some cool down laps, join us with the New Year Beginning Runners on the AHS Track at 10:30 am.  I know they would love to hear encouragement from others who have “been there, done that” trying to get started running.

“Walk for the Woods” is a wonderful opportunity for local residents to explore a piece of wilderness right in the heart of Anne Arundel County! Not yet open to the public, South River Greenway is a protected property that will become one of Anne Arundel County largest parks. Upland streams, lily filled ponds, nesting birds and spring wild flowers are just a few of sights to delight the senses of nature enthusiasts at this event. Hikes range from 1 to 4 miles on marked trials. Each walker will receive a Points of Interest Guide and may hike alone or join a guided bird or naturalist-led walk.
