SATURDAY 5/29/10 PRACTICE

Hi All, We are meeting at Zizzo's Coffee tomorrow at 6:30am for our workout along with one last downhill time trial before State Street.
Grandmas Marathoners have their long one tomorrow. Bring your fluid to drink as you'll be running the figure 8 around Girsh Park and the neighborhood.
Good Luck to our triathletes doing their last long grueling workout as well as those racing the Coeurdalene Marathon Sunday!

SATURDAY 5/15/10

Hi All, Practice is at the Ellwood Bluffs again tomorrow. See you at 6:30am!

Most all of us are in strength/endurance mode and/or re-building from marathons (and there are those that are beginning speed for the SS mile as well as Vicki's 3k)...hence as with last week we will do the 800m downhill at 95% effort at the3 end of the workout for those SS Milers.

Tim Strand: Do your Marathon workout starting at the Ellwood School and follow the SBIM Course. Good Luck!

2010 WINE COUNTRY 1/2 MARATHON RESULTS!

Hi All, We had some great results today at the WC 1/2 marathon. Mike shalhoub ran a fantastic time on the hilly 1/2 course in what had to be a HUGE PR (at least 4minutes maybe 6minutes!...Mike feel free to post your former PR...GREAT JOB!). Ricky had a HUGE PR as well, Congrats! Tim Strand runs a big PR at Marathon Pace effort, not even racing! Same Goes for Drea, running very "easy" controlled marathon pace for first 6, then, according to plan A, flying the last 7+miles almost catching (30sec behind and closing fast!) Julia Stamps, one of the most heralded high school runners ever and many time ALL-American at Stanford (She's GOOD)! Drea's goal is an Olympic Trials Marathon qualifier in 6 weeks and she's ever so close to being ready to do it.
Tekle looks to have run a great one as well. (Is it true you were smoking only a few short years ago? Google "Priscilla Welch" and you might relate:) Actually, here you go:

CONGRATS TO GEORGE AND TODD!

George ran 3:06 in the Avenue of the Giants for a PR! Great job George!

Todd Booth (an occasional SBRR runner) ran a 1:12:50 1/2 marathon in Orange County. A great time for a 40 yr old, but more importantly a PR!
