I’m not aware of any race results from the weekend so instead I will use this update to put out an idea we have been talking about. The basic idea is to turn the Yankee Runners from just a CARA marathon-training group into a year round running club. I would like to see not only several races but also 3-4 social events each year that we would target.
|11.22.14||Gobble Gobble Run or Wobble 5K|
|11.22.14||Orland Hills 21st Annual 5K Turkey Trot|
|11.27.14||Running for Kicks 9th Annual Turkey Trot|
|12.06.14||Jingle Bell 5K|
|January (date TBD)||Yankee Runners Hot Chocolate Run|
|Mondays||Group Runs at Running for Kicks|

With the training and spring races behind us, the Yankee Runners once again return home to Yankee Woods for the summer. If you plan on running Chicago or any other fall marathon there is still time to join the CARA program and train with the Yankee Runners. The Yankee Runners are a great group of runners who welcome runners of all paces. We are big enough that you should never be alone. Yet still small enough that your group leader will know your name. I will know your name and your face, though I must admit I don’t always put them together. We take CARA’s training program and make it better by adding several of our own wrinkles to it. If you have any questions contact me at email@example.com.
Come on out and give us a try!
