The Palos Park District basketball season has ended. This means we can once again park in the lot between the firehouse and the rec center.

Good luck to all runners taking part in the Shamrock Shuffle 8k. I’ll let you know how our teams do.

If you are training for Boston, Illinois or any other spring marathon you are in the meat of the program. The mileage is as high as it gets and the taper is just a week or two away. Remember you can’t make up for lost time. Stay focused on your training. Don’t let up but don’t push harder either, stay steady.

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!
