Congratulations Ladies! Racing season is officially upon us and many of you are off to a great start! Palisade was a successful trip. We had some people set some new personal records, some that continue to amaze us with consistency, some that ran a new distance, others that just raced, and one that drove all that way just to support us. We are an amazing group! We had runners at the Bolder Boulder who also did great things. In June we have many races coming up such as the Leaves of Hope 5K, the Father’s Day 5K and the Slacker ½ marathon, (Relay anyone?) In case you didn’t see it our Long Run Schedule has been updated through October. We can always modify a run shorter so if you know anyone that would like to run with us, feel free to invite them. We have still continued the speed sessions at the track which have been fun yet challenging. The tempo runs have been on a little bit of a hiatus because of an injury. My schedule continues to be crazy throughout June so I will still be asking for helping leading runs and stuff. I appreciate what everyone has done to help me out.
It also has been asked people could email me their favorite races so I can put a list on the website. Some have been having a hard time deciding which races to sign up for.
Saturday June 1, 2013 – 7:30 am meet at Prospect Park on 44th Avenue for the bike ride that Stacy has planned. See further details on FaceBook.
Sunday June 2, 2013 – Leaves of Hope 5k in Wheat Ridge – or we will have a run at the Coalton/Meadowlark trail head. We will meet at 7:00 am. This trail is located at McCaslin Blvd and Coalton Roundabout on the west side. Most people have 9 miles scheduled this week so we can do a 4.5 mile out and back. We can always modify for shorter runs if we need to. Cindy has signed up for an aide station.
Tuesday June 4, 2013 – 5:30 pm Track workout, Oberon Middle School
Sunday June 9, 2013 – 7:00 am meet at Goddard School to run Candelas. Most of us have 10 miles scheduled so after running the hill you can add on 4 through the neighborhood. I need a volunteer to lead the group and Wendy will do the aide station at the top of the hill please. Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you can lead the group.
Tuesday June 11, 2013 – 5:30 pm Track workout, Oberon Middle School

Tuesday June 18, 2013 – 5:30 pm Track workout, Oberon Middle School
Sunday June 23, 2013 – 7:00 am meet at the trail head on Highway 93 just south of 58th on the east side. It is directly across from Golden Storage. We will run North Table Mountain. There are 10 miles scheduled but not a great place for an aide station so I strongly recommend carrying your own liquids.
Tuesday June 25, 2013 – 5:30 pm Track workout, Oberon Middle School
Sunday June 30, 2013 – 7:00 am meet at the Parking lot just east of Simms on 100th to run the Big Dry Creek trail. There are 11 miles scheduled. I will need someone to volunteer for the aide station and to volunteer to lead please. Email me if you are available. (email@example.com)
