Good evening. Hopefully you’re enjoying the snow, or at the least not too terribly inconvenienced by the lighter-than-forecasted amount on the ground. Thanks to all who logged into last week’s Business Meeting, we had a great conversation about the upcoming Stryders Grand Prix and other doings related to the club through our association with the Road Runners Club of America and USATF. More on that to come in the days and weeks ahead.
Some folks asked the coaches about resuming the wintertime workouts on Wednesday evenings and the coaches obliged. The first was sent to members by coach Mary Fenton. The workout is obviously optional and anyone who turns out for the run/walk is welcome to do the usual route in town and up to Skidmore.
Speaking of which, the slate is back to the usual schedule this week:
• Wednesday Night Downtown Run at 6 p.m. Start/finish at Whitman Brewing. Don’t forget reflective gear, headlamps, taillights, etc. You’ll need to find parking nearby, be mindful that the lot at 20 Lake Avenue is a private pay-per-day lot, so street parking or the Woodlawn garage might be your best options. Whitman reopened over the weekend after a short break. Remember to follow NYS guidelines regarding masks, etc. if you head in after the run.
• Saturday Run/Walk at 8:30 a.m. at the Warming Hut at the Saratoga Spa State Park.
• Sunday Long Run at Noon at Unified Beerworks in Malta.
Have a great week. See you soon,
