On behalf of the Yankee Runners, our deepest condolences go to Spero Speropoulos and his family as they deal with this difficult time.

After the monsoons of last Saturday we just finished a great week of running.  The weather has been almost perfect.  Don’t count on it staying that way; in fact by the time you read this the weather may have turned.  Be careful in the heat, slow down and stay hydrated.

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 gokarts@juno.com.

Come on out and give us a try!
