Well we are finally here………If you are part of the Full Marathon team we are heading into the longest run of the season, the run walk team is switch up their interval this week while the Half Marathon  I still building on their training. No matter which group you are part of this is a big week for everyone.

We also want to celebrate along the way and recognize everyone that had the longest run of their training this past weekend. The weather really worked out for us and fingers cross we have similar conditions come race day.

Reminded: Coach Aaron will not be onsite on Saturday and still looking for a few volunteers to help out on Saturday.

Need Help - Oct 2nd 

Well I need your help. I don't miss many runs but occasionally something comes up that will take me out of town on a day we are set to run and this very situation is presenting itself on Saturday Oct 2nd. Coach Yayoi will be onsite to lead the group but looking for 1 or 2 volunteers that might be able to help me out that day. I can discuss with you in more detail what will be required but above all other things you will need to make a commitment to be at the run on Saturday Oct 2nd. If you think you will be around that day and wouldn't mind helping out please approach me on Tuesday or Saturday to discuss. Your help would very much be appreciated and there might be something in it for you as well.

Thank you in advance for helping out. 

It’s Getting Dark (Bring a Headlamp)

Who noticed how dark it was on last week’s run? Most of the remaining runs will be on pathways that have street lights but there is often dark spots along the way. If you have one I would encourage you to start bring your headlamp with you on these Tuesday runs. Your safety is important and bringing a headlamp with you is the best way to prevent a trip and fall on these runs. Be Safe out there.

Upcoming Group Runs & Clinics

Below are the run maps and the group run locations.  At the very bottom of this email are detailed instructions on the meeting locations.

Tuesday @ 6:15pm - Liberty Station

Starting at the old Naval Training Center (NTC) in the NE corner of the park (parking lot right at Cushing Rd), head out SW out of the park, over the Halsey Rd Bridge.  Cut back and underneath the Harbor Drive Bridge to enter Spanish Landing Park.  Continue out to Harbor Island, heading West to end to cul-de-sac for 3.3mi one-way.  Option is to skip Harbor Island and continue around SD harbor on Harbor Drive to your turnaround.

Saturday @  7:15am - The San Diego Junket “LONG” Run

Simple. . . It’s just a big-ass, long run!  It covers Crown Point, Ocean Beach, Pt. Loma, Downtown, Old Town and Mission Bay and it based on an old San Diego favorite “Tour of San Diego” - named for obvious reasons. The transition from Ocean Beach to Pt. Loma is up and over a road called “Hill Street”  :) The extended 22.5 mi option goes further into downtown, then UP A St andUP into Balboa Park for additional mileage and hills.

As Always

Please let us know if you have questions.

See ya out there!
