Weekly Update 8.30.18

PSL, really?

I am not sure your thoughts on the afore mentioned beverage, but Starbucks has released earlier than ever the Pumpkin Spice latte, which to me says fall.  Fall for us means race time, long runs, and much more relaxing running conditions, so get out and enjoy cooler temps for your runs. No matter your feelings on PSL, it appears that this week signals that temps are eventually going to move closer to sweatshirts and jeans weather, maybe.

Group Run: We will meet at the Community Gym in Cedarburg 7am Saturday morning, and head South on the “Meekwon Golf Course.”  You can see the full route if you follow the group run link to our website.  There will be water and Gatorade on the route, but feel free to carry what you need also.

Run, Run, Run: Summer and fall are traditionally race time, so please let us know what races are on your schedule, so we can cheer you on!!!

Lakefront Water Stop: It’s that time of year again. Once again a combination of Run Ozaukee, Be3/Z-Force will help to man the water stop at mile 20 of Lakefront Marathon. I’m looking for volunteers again this year to help out on Sunday October 7th. Please let me know if you are interested or if you know of anyone that may want to help.

If your children are interested in helping that is great we will find places for them.  For more information please contact John Taylor. There is a registration form you need to complete to volunteer at the race, and he will direct you to all that information.

Per usual, hang around after our run for a cup of coffee at Fiddleheads!!!

Read to the bottom- lots of good stuff here

Let’s get right to it, lots to update you on this week:

Badgerland Half Marathon– This weekend a number of our runners will be running the Badgerland Half Marathon at Estabrook Park in Glendale.  It is a low key race that utilizes portions of the Oak Leaf Trail, and finishes with a full hot breakfast in the beer garden, with free beer (feel free to bring your own stein or mug).  We have a number of runner that will be there, so be sure to say hi, and grab a beer and breakfast with other Run Ozaukee members if you head down to run it.

Columbus Marathon Bib– Keith Sohr, one of our own has suffered an injury and will not be able to run the Columbus Marathon as he had hoped.  He is not able to defer the entry, but could transfer it to another runner, and he is more than willing to talk about sharing the cost of the race, if you wanted to run it.  Send Keith a note ([email protected]) if you want more information.

Running Clinic– Another Run Ozaukee runner, Rob Meilbeck has recently completed his advanced degree in Physical Therapy, and is now working with Fyzical Therapy and Balance Centers, who are putting on a workshop for runners at Real Health and Fitness in Cedarburg on Monday August 27th 6:30-7:30pm.  You need to RSVP to hold your spot, so be sure to sign up soon if you want to attend.  A flyer with more information is attached to this email.

Weekly Update 8.15.18

Key ingredient to running your best: Not running?

As many runners I have a bit of type A in me, and that drives me to be competitive, as well as to push myself, because well, most people don’t ever think that running 15-20 miles to start their Saturday is a good idea.  One learning that I have both experienced first hand and been reminded of recently is that how and what we do as runners for rest and recovery can be as important as your Tuesday speed work, or your pacing on a long run.  I encourage you to read this article, and to be sure that you take care of your body and nutrition as well on off days, as you do on those hard workout days.

Group Run: We will meet at the Community Gym in Cedarburg 7am Saturday morning, and head out on the “Rustic Road Route.”  You can see the full route if you follow the group run link to our website.  There will be water and Gatorade on the route, but feel free to carry what you need also.

Extra Miles: I am going to be running 20 miles this weekend, and plan to be doing some of those miles before we start our 7am group run. If you would like to join me for any number of extra miles, please just text me 414-491-5131 so we can coordinate meeting up.

Weekly Update July 10

How is summer half over?

Not sure how but it is July 10th already.  Summer is flying by and it doesn’t seem like it is slowing down anytime soon.  My encouragement is to enjoy the time, the trips, the BBQs, and all that summer throws at you.  Or in the wise words of  Ferris Bueller, Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”  So slow down and enjoy!

Group Run: We will meet at the Community Gym in Cedarburg 7am Saturday morning, and head North on the “Pioneer/Granville/Bonniewell route.”  You can see the full route if you follow the group run link to our website.  There will be water and Gatorade on the route, but feel free to carry what you need also.

Twice as nice, and just as awesome!!!

Yes ladies and gentleman, we will have TWO, yes two chances to gather as a group each week this summer for Run Ozaukee.  For simplicity we will have the same meeting location at the Cedarburg Community Gym parking lot.  Tuesday nights we will meet at 6:00 for a social 4-6 mile low key run. Those will be going tonight and likely through the month of August each Tuesday.  We might even wander to a nearby pub for some “hyrdation” after our run, just saying.
