Weekly Update 3.28.19

Go Cubs Go!!!

Do I have your attention now?  Today is opening day for baseball, America’s past time, and Brewers fans are out in force tailgating, and otherwise celebrating that today actually feels like baseball weather.  We are also headed into prime running weather.  I hope you get out for a walk or run today to enjoy before a brief cold snap this weekend.  What kind of running goals and dreams do you have this year?  Staying healthy? Running more miles? Faster times? Or just having fun while doing it?

Group Run: We will meet at the Community Gym in Cedarburg 7am Saturday morning, and head out on the “Path to Grafton Pool to John Taylor 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.

Welcome to Spring!

This week we began meteorological spring.  For once the weather actually looks like that is the reality.  Hoping you have enjoyed getting out in less layers, and just enjoying being outside some more in this great weather.  Spring races are around the corner, good luck to those who are in their final weeks of prep for some of the upcoming April races.  As always let us know when you are running so we can cheer you on!

Group Run: We will meet at the Community Gym in Cedarburg 7am Saturday morning, and head out on the “Cedar Creek 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.  There will also be runners starting at 6am for early miles who are preparing for Spring races that you are welcome to join if you are interested in an early start or extra miles.

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

You can run in shorts?

Did it feel weird to anyone else to get out shorts and lighter layers to run in? It appears that at least our sub zero cold temps are numbered.  Hope that those training for spring races are doing well and staying healthy.  Hopefully a few more days over 32 and we can have some nice days to run with decent footing.

Group Run:  This week we will meet at the Cedarburg Community Gym at 7am per usual and head south on the bike path using the “Cedarburg to Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary Route.”  The route is almost 12 miles, and will have water and Gatorade along the route per usual.  There will also be a group meeting in the same starting location at 6:30am for a few extra miles early, for those interested.

We will gather at Fiddleheads afterwards for a cup off coffee, a muffin or whatever else if your post run ritual, as well as catch up on life and running.

One day I will run in shorts again….

It appears that this weekend we may see the weather finally turn away from bitter winter towards at least moderate temps.  Saturday will still be a cooler run, with some wind, but trying to convince myself I can suck it up a little longer.  This also means that race season is almost upon us with some members of the group already preparing for April and May races! Stick with it, the weather will improve soon.
Group Run: We will meet at the Community Gym in Cedarburg 7am Saturday morning, and head out on the “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.

Is it spring yet?

Good morning crew!  I hope your weeks have gone well, and that you have been able to get some good runs in this week.  I know some of you are preparing for spring races, and that weather has been challenging to log good miles outside, but stick with it, the groundhog claims that winter will end sooner than later….maybe. Weather looks decent for our run Saturday, and we are going to be doing a scenic and simple route this week.

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.

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 1.31.19

Heat Wave this weekend

Yes I know that is a bit exaggerated, but the temperature difference between yesterday and Sunday is projected to be about 60 degrees, so that.  Hope you all have stayed warm in this historically cold temperatures the last few days.  The temps are supposed to tip back to allowing us to run outside safely by tomorrow morning, so if you have cabin fever, we are almost to the end.

Group Run: We will meet at the Community Gym in Cedarburg 7am Saturday morning, and head North on the “Fire Ridge 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.
