Our new men's beginning running group is looking for mentors and new runners - as part of the women's program as a mentor, and marathon training as a pacer, it is incredibly rewarding to feel like you're impacting people by helping them accomplish new running goals every week. As a bonus, it puts my own running woes into (sometimes hilarious) perspective... a little too frequently.

Did you see the photos from the Clinton Lake Ultra this past weekend and want to get in on this trail running nonsense? Run our next club race, Buffalo Trace, on May 12!

This week: Fun Run:
Pick up your pre-ordered shirts starting at 6pm on Tuesday at Meadowbrook!
Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at Meadowbrook Park in Urbana (at the intersection of Windsor and Vine - there is a parking lot and you can park on both sides of Vine as you approach the park). We will start out with a timed-ish mile running west and then south, followed by one or more two mile loops continuing in the same direction. The Women's Beginning Running Group will be joining us for their optional weekly run. The Relaxed-Pace Running Group (RPRG) does a 11-15 minute mile pace and walking is welcome. Both these groups will go in the opposite direction, so no matter your speed you'll see other club members! Post Run: Esquire in downtown Champaign. Got an idea where we should go? Or feedback (good OR bad) about a place we went? Email me! Speedwork:Wednesday at 6pm. Meet at the Armory. Come participate in a fun and different sprint-based workout each week. Runners of all speeds are welcome to attend. $3 to get in if you don't have a valid iCard. Speedwork will move outside sometime in April as weather dictates. See you on the trails!
