Thank you Run Ozaukee!!

This past weekend I ran Grandma’s Marathon and was overwhelmed in the weeks leading up, and even since the race of the incredible encouragement of this group!!!  Thank you so much for your texts, emails, and other encouragement on this journey.  I got a little greedy pacing, and did not make my Boston Qualifying time at Grandma’s, but am ready to make the BQ at the Chicago Marathon this fall.

Is it hot out there?

This past week I did my runs in Florida, and began adjusting to running in high humidity, 80-90 degrees, and then came home to it hotter here than there, so looks like summer is here to stay for now.

First things first, congrats to Kati, Chris, and Nick for their completing the Rock N Sole Half Marathon last weekend and to Lucy for her another win in her age division on a 100 mile run!!!  Keep sending along the races you run of all lengths, so we can cheer you on!!!

Cheers and prayers appreciated as I (Bill) run Grandma’s Marathon in Duluth this weekend.  If you can set water out please contact me directly, and I can get you the water buckets for this week.

Group Run 5-20

Good morning crew on this warm and humid May morning!!!  Spring is finally here!!!  Just to start congrats to Lucy and Christina who ran the Ice Age 50 mile trail run this past weekend!!!  What an achievement!!!

Summer Preview: We are going to try out mid week social runs this summer starting the second week of June (June 13).  More details to come, but like a 6 or 7pm run that is either speed work, or an easy 5-6 mile route.  More info coming, but just to preview that.
 
Group Route: To me this warmer weather and the tree and flowers budding begs for us to run Rustic Road.  We will meet at 7am at the Cedarburg Community Gym, then head for the Rustic Road.  The route is about 11 miles and will have 3 water buckets along the course for this weekend, but as always feel free to carry your own fluids, as the buckets have been known to walk off.  Afterwards, plan to stay around for a cup of whatever sounds good after a run from Fiddleheads.  Have a great week and hope to see you Saturday!!!

Group Run 5-13

Good afternoon on this sunny and warmer day!!!  Spring is trying to come out, races are upon us, and many of you are running more and more miles.  That all said hopefully you can come out and join us for our group run this weekend.  It’s a chance to socialize, connect, chat, oh yeah and get some good miles in!!!  Now onto the run:

Group Route: We will meet on Saturday at 7am @ Sal’s and head off on the “Cedar Creek Route.”  That route is just over 10 miles, and there will be water and Gatorade on the route per usual, but as always feel free to carry your own fluids, in case the bucket bandits make off with our supplies!!!
As always hang around after at Fiddleheads for a cup of coffee and talk running, family, and more with a great beverage.

Group Run 5-6

Good morning crew on this cool “spring” day.  Baseball season is going, the draft has happened, so Packers fans can begin to dream of the season ahead, and race season is upon us.  Starting now till October there are races of all kinds most every weekend, so please let us know if you are running so we can cheer you on and celebrate your accomplishments!!!

Run Route: Who doesn’t like hills 😂?  This weekend we will meet at the Cedarburg Community Gym parking lot @7am to take on the “Grafton Route” which is about 10.5 miles, and of course is not totally flat.  There will be water and gatorade on the course per usual, but feel free to carry whatever fluids and fuel you may need.
If you are able hang around after at Fiddlehead’s for a cup of whatever sounds good to you!!!  Have a great week, hope to see you all this weekend!!!
