As the run started on Saturday I found myself feeling sorry for all ofthe first timers. We have many runners, who each week run further then they have ever run before. To have them face an Enemy like we had to face seemed unfair. As the run progressed, shoes soaked with sweat, I started feeling sorry for myself. With all my experience, over 20 marathons completed, it was becoming painfully obvious I would not be able to hold pace. The Enemy had me by the throat. What could I do?

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Come on out and give us a try!
