Ok winter we get it

Well, anyone who was wishing for winter has gotten it hand over fist the last few weeks, my goodness.  Hopefully you have been able to enjoy the snow and warmer weather the last few days.  Weather is looking good for our group run this week after having to cancel last week due to inclement weather.  It will be good to see you all after what seems like an extended break in our running together.

Group Run: We will meet at the Community Gym in Cedarburg 7am Saturday morning, and head out on a new route for our group the “Cedarburg Grafton 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.

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

Weekly Update 2.7.19

When did we move to Seattle?

The last few weeks have not been particularly runner friendly weather days with lots of ice, rain, bitter cold, and bad footing.  This might be a great chance to get some cross training in, some yoga, weight training, or to head to an indoor track or treadmill to log your miles.  Like last week I will post the route today, but ,may adjust based on weather, footing and other conditions.  I will monitor the forecast, but please watch our social media feeds on facebook and twitter for the most update information on this weekend’s run.  If there are any major changes or cancelations, the goal is to make those by dinner time so that we can provide ample time for notifying everyone.

Group Run: We will meet at the Community Gym in Cedarburg 7am Saturday morning, and head out on a new route for our group the “Cedarburg Grafton 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.

Weekly Update 1.24.19

Group Run Canceled

It appears that the weather is finally turning towards what we have all come to expect, snow and chilly.  A front is on it’s way in as we speak that will settle of WI for about the next week or so.  This means lows below zero for about the next week with wind chill values well below zero.  Due to the wind chill warnings for the next few days, we will not be having a group run this weekend.  Often we recommend that runners head to the Petite Center for a nice indoor venue, but they are hosting a running event this weekend on Saturday.  Find a nice treadmill or indoor track at a local high school this weekend, or hop on a bike, swim, or find a class.  We we will hopefully get a little warmer weather and be back outside next weekend together.

Stay warm and stay safe this weekend as these frigid lows settle in for a bit.

Run Ozaukee Mileage Challenge: Welcome to our first annual Run Ozaukee Holiday Challenge.  No awards, no pressure, just a fun way to work towards a common goal in a hectic season for most people.  The idea: Either aim for 100 or 150 miles between December 1st and New Years 2019.  It is between 23-35 miles per week depending on which goal you aim for.  No pressure, but just a fun way to share in staying on track, and staying fit as we head into a time of year that it can be easy to drop off, with Holidays and no races around the corner.  If you are are Garmin or Strava you can see fellow Run Ozaukee Members working on this goal.

Again no trophies, no medals, but consider choosing a mileage as your goal for this month, and encourage your fellow Run Ozaukee members as they aim for their goal too!

Group Run: We will meet at the Community Gym in Cedarburg 7am Saturday morning, and head out on the “Kaehler’s Mill 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.
