The popular "Saturday Mornings on the Grass" runs are returning this year, starting the Saturday after Labor Day. The goal is to prep for cross-country, preview the race courses (other than Strawberry Island, which is too far away for a training run), and, as always, have fun.

 

All sessions start at 9 am, warmed up and ready for strides. Routes will be long loops (often 2K) with pace changes marked by colored soccer cones.

The schedule is subject to change, mostly related to vagaries of the weather, but here is the tentative schedule. Please check in for possible changes in location.

 

 

Nov 9--RACE, Pier Park

 

Nov. 16--Fernhill Park. Meet on the west side of the track.

 

Nov 23--RACE, Fernhill

 

Nov 30--TBD. Weather permitting, this will be a course designed to mimic Lehigh, for those going to nationals. Meet on north side, though this is a small park where we will see each other. Workout will be a taper workout on its all-weather surface.

 

Dec. 7--Wilshire Park.

 

Dec 14--USATF Club XC Nationals, Lehigh University, Pennsylvania

The second Saturday on the Grass is now also history. And historical: we had a record 23 people--up nearly 50 percent from our prior record of 16! 

 

That makes this a memory test for me comparable to Duniway Tuesdays. I'm guaranteed to miss a few!

Rick, 

 

You are missing Mike G. from last Saturday's workout.  :)  It's impressive you remembered everyone else, especially when some people missed the introductions.
