E-news Oct. 26, 2011
Hi runners! This e-news is short and sweet!
These guys are about to participate in the Boulder Naked Pumpkin Run...well, when they get undressed. Google it.
1) RACE REPORTS
***from Darrell Harden
On October 9, I ran the Evansville Half Marathon in Evansville, Indiana. For me, that was a huge deal, because I was born in Evansville, but left before I could really form any lasting memories of my home town. What better way to tour than to run a 13.1-mile loop through town, right? I finished in 1:48:28, good for my second-best half marathon time, but not quite the PR that I was hoping for.
That's all from here. I'm looking forward to making the trek from Piedmont to Jacksonville on December 3 with the Anniston Runners Club. :-)
2) UPCOMING EVENTS
Can you please do a shout out to our AOD Federal Credit Union/YMCA Spooktacular 5K that will happen at 7am Sat Oct 29th at AOD FCU in Oxford behind the Oxford YMCA. It is a costume race too!! We are giving away prizes for top 10 males and top 10 females runners only, but we are also giving away some great door prizes and top 3 best costumes for male and female if they choose to dress up and run. Of course if they do not want to dress up they can still run or walk! Our tech shirts are long sleeve black with great running skeletons across the front. They can call Ann Angell at 256-832-9622 for more info.
The course is clearly marked except for the exact start and the exact finish if anyone wants to run it ahead of time.
Pinhoti 100 STILL NEEDS VOLUNTEERS for the November 5th-6th race! Email Todd Henderson at email@example.com if you can help. There's more help to be done, too, for this event:
Attention Trail and Endurance enthusiasts (and folks that like muddy shoes):
A couple of volunteers are needed to assist at the Pinhoti 100 mile run Aide Station #5. The Lake Morgan, County Rd 24 station is near the Oxford area and will be operational from 10am until 2:30pm. Interested? Contact Tommy Triplett at firstname.lastname@example.org
