Coach Al needs pace group leaders for Saturday’s long run…let him know if you can help!
Enormous KUDOS to everyone who has nominated someone for and/or contributed to Shipmate of the Year! If you haven’t…there’s still time!! Keep reading for a rehash of last week’s email on same…2023 marks the return of the pre-marathon carb loading extravaganza at Chez Jerie on Friday, February 17th, at 7 pm. The highlight of the evening is crowning your Shipmate of the Year. What is Shipmate of the Year?? I thought you’d never ask! SotY is someone who has gone above and beyond over the last year (or longer) in doing the things that make the Ship the Ship. Prior winners cannot win again (Al, Big, Sandy, Vance, Chelsea, Jerie, Jim Grau, Penny, Kate, Michelle, and Luke). Make your nomination here! In addition to your love and adoration we typically bestow a large stack of cash on the winner. You can contribute (not tax deductible) electronically at follows: PayPal = email@example.com, Zelle = firstname.lastname@example.org, Venmo = @Jeff-Burrus, or Cash App = $JeffBurrus. Alternatively, you can hand Coach or I cash at any workout between now and Thursday, February 16th. Contributions are not necessary but are greatly appreciated.
