• Week of August 3

    Our Fun Run is at 6:30 Tuesday night at Meadowbrook Park. Thanks to all who came out for the Relaxed-Pace Running Group last week. I think there were about a dozen of you. We are looking forward to seeing you again this week. Following the fun run join us for dinner and drinks at Billy Barooz in southwest Champaign.

    Wednesday is speedwork at Centennial high school track at 6. Be warmed up and ready to start at 6. Please bring your own water as none is available.

    Thursday night is trail night. Get out to the Lake of the Woods in Mahomet for a five mile trail run at 6. It starts in the Crowley Road parking lot north of the high school.

    Saturday will be the next marathon training run. It starts at 7 a.m. at Hessel park for 14 miles or 7 miles for the half group. Meet at the pavilion on the north side of the park. Directions for the running route are attached.

    Our annual Second Wind Summer Cookout will be on Tuesday, August 11 at the Windsor Road shelter right after the fun run. Second Wind will provide and grill burgers, both meat and meatless, and table service. Please bring your own drink (non-alcoholic) and a dish to share. Please RSVP by emailing me at or by signing up at Tuesday's fun run.

    Have a great week!

  • 2015 Monumental Marathon Training Program

    Are you ready to start thinking about a fall marathon or half-marathon? The Indianapolis Monumental Marathon is becoming a tradition for our club as a destination race. Whether you choose the marathon or half-marathon, Indianapolis is a great place to race. Our summer long runs will again target the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon, which this year is on November 7. Our long runs, combined with our Tuesday night fun runs and Wednesday night track workouts, are a great way to get ready for the fall race of your choice. However, I hope that you will consider joining us in Indianapolis on November 7. More race information can be found at and training program details are here 2015 SWRC Monumental Marathon Training Program.pdf. Any additional questions can be sent to me at
