ARC board elections begin on Wednesday, May 1!  While you don’t have to be a member of ARC to run with the Ship you do have to be a member to vote.  Nearly every position is being contested which is a little unusual and very exciting.  I’m renewing my membership for the first time in many years so that I can vote and I hope you’ll join me.

Tuesday – timed 800, 6 x 400 w/a partner

Thursday – Long Hill/Short Hill
Beginners = 3
Fun Group = 6
Fast Group = 9

Saturday – there will be a long run departing the zero at 7:00:00 am Saturday morning.  Off the trail this week for 10.43 miles, 6 miles (turn right at Lamar and return to the zero), or 4 miles (turn back at the first cooler).  Breakfast at El Borrego de Oro (3900 S Congress) at 9:07:07 am.

Run every chance you get!
