      Hello everyone, 

      I want to thank everyone for being so understanding this past week as my father passed away this past weekend. We don't need to go into a bunch of details but in general, I am so happy that I have such an amazing group of people around me willing to not only support me but jump in for the club when I couldn't make it. I truly appreciate all the support and yet another reason why this club and the people in it are such an amazing group of people. Thank you.

      On a lighter note, we are heading out to shelter island for a run we all know and love. This path seems to be one of the least congested routes we do our long runs on so we are back at it again. Its been warm so bring hydration continues to be important. 

      see you in the morning for an out and back.  

      This Week’s Training - Week 8

      As noted above, we are in recovery week. Which means we will take it a little slower and easier on our long runs.  This is important because the next 2 weeks are the final build-up to the LONG run, with some great long hill tempo runs in between.  These next 2-3 weeks can provide you with some very effective training.  We’ll end the last week before the race with a Taper (which is also important).  Make your long hill runs count. Keep those LONG runs nice, steady, and solid. Start to mentally think about your race.

      • Interval Run/Walkers – Intervals go up to 2/8 or 2/13.  
      • Intermediate Runners –Thursdays are now 7 milers ;)  We’re going up to 8-10 on Saturday.  
      • PR Chaser Runners - You love bumping up!  Lots of specialty workouts for you, including hill repeats and LT intervals on Thursdays.  You’re up to a cool 11mi on Saturday.  See the schedule for details.

        As Always...

        We'll arrive 15-20 minutes before each group run to make ourselves available for questions, tips, etc.. We also plan to stay afterward for as long as it takes to do the same. This means I'll be at Tuesday runs around 5:45 PM and Saturday runs at 6:45 AM.
