TWN Christmas Light Run – 12/19/2018

This week we’ll do our Christmas light routes. Feel free to wear something festive, and don’t forget – Wear your headlamp and reflective gear. We normally run this one slower than normal, stopping to see the sights, take some pictures, and regroup.

As usual, we’ll meet at the front steps of First Baptist Church at 6:15pm and leave for the run at 6:20pm.

TWN Routes for 10/3/2018

HTRITD-SingleRunner

The weekly mileage is adding up fast as we approach marathon season.  Whether you’re new to running, or a seasoned veteran, YOU CAN DO THIS!

A sincere FIST BUMP to Fleet Feet for hosting our SAG tonight. We’ll run by their store so you can have a chance to get familiar with their location.

The distances are 10 Miles, 9 Miles, and 3 Miles tonight.  Choose the one that suits you and matches up with your running plan.

Enjoy the fall weather on Wednesday night, and remember that it’s getting dark earlier. Headlamps and hand-held flashlights are great items for evening runs. Also, make sure you wear reflective gear and consider wearing white, yellow, or orange clothes.

It’s no secret that we love a good meal and drink after we get our miles in. TWN prides itself on our post-run meals. If you have time, join us: the more the merrier. This week’s post-run meal is at The Grill at Patterson and Libbie.  It’s perfect for a large group of sweaty people like us!

Lastly, don’t forget to bring your own printed route.
