There were Yankee Runners racing all over in the past week. On Thursday we took part in Running for Kicks annual 4 mile Turkey trot which is a great way to start Thanksgiving. I always enjoy seeing runners from marathon training. This year I saw several as they passed me. After the race our tailgating continues to gain in popularity. As I expected many trophies were won by YR’s.

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 you 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!
