Before I get down to the business of the last week before the taper I want to congratulate Christine Kickels and Frogger for qualifying for Boston on Saturday.  It was their last chance before registration closes and they rose to the challenge.  Good job!!!!

Also, Wendy Jay is continuing her climb to the top and one day will also qualify for Boston.  She set a new PR and won an age award in the Naperville Trails ½ Marathon.

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!
