The cold front blew in right on schedule. The temperature dropped, the wind howled, and then…lightning! The workout was cancelled and the more prudent fools headed home (or to the bar). Way to coach, Al!
The Workout – 800 meter repeats
Fast/Marathon Group = 8
Fun/Half Marathon Group = 8

News – there will be a hill workout on Thursday (5 mile tempo for the full/half marathoners, 3 mile tempo for the 10kers). There will be a long run departing the zero at 7:00:00 am on Saturday. Full and half marathoners will do this 6 miler to start with. After that, the marathoners will add 7 on the trail and the half marathoners will add 6 on the trail. The 10kers will stay on the trail for the 5 mile loop. Breakfast at El Gallo (2910 S Congress) at 9:20:00 am.
More News – we need 16 people to volunteer to hang announcements on the doors of houses along the marathon route NEXT Saturday, February 9th. These are informational flyers giving residents a heads up that the racing is coming so that they can be properly prepared on race morning (road closures and whatnot). This is something the group has done for the last several years for the marathon and Austin Runners Club. We typically start after breakfast and are done by noon. If you can help please click this link, select “Austin Runners Club” from the drop down menu, and enter password “arc” (without the quotes). Fill in your info on the form and show up on Saturday at 10:00 am. All volunteers will receive FREE breakfast that morning along with the heartfelt joy that can only be felt by giving back.
Run every chance you get!
