Those of you who do not start early heard the story about why I ran my second marathon.  My next story will be a story I was reminded of a few weeks ago as we were running through water crossings on the way back from a 14-mile run.  I’ve told that story in past years.  I will follow up that story with the story none of you have heard.  I have no timetable for these stories; I’ll just wait for what seems to be the right time.

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

Come on out and give us a try!
