November Schedule

November Schedule

Hi Ladies –

About a year ago I was given the fabulous job of taking over the day to day actions of the running club. I mentioned at the board meeting that I would take this position for a year and then the position would be re-elected. I’m throwing out the idea that if someone would like to take the position I will stand by what was said and let someone else run the day to day activities. Please let me know if you would like to take the job or if you would like to nominate someone to take the job.

The book club this month will be at Kim’s house on November 7th…The book is called “The Ledge.”  More details about times and addresses will posted on Face Book, reading the book is optional.

Through the winter you can choose your own distance…

The track sessions will be cancelled through the winter because of the time change. I would really like the Thank Lesley and Dina for running that. They did a fabulous job!

November 3rd – We will start meeting at 8 am through the winter. We will meet at Goddard at 87th and Indiana and run Candelas. I would really appreciate someone putting an aide station at the top of the hill. Let me know if you can do this.

November 10th – We will meet at the Dog Park on 64th and just west of Virgil Way at 8:00 am. You have the option of running around the reservoir or running the Fairmont trail. I will need someone to volunteer to lead the group as I will be out of town. Please let me know if you can lead.

November 17th – Meet at Starbucks at 64th and Ward and at 7:30 and we can carpool to Red Rocks and run through the park.

November 24th – This is our annual Fundraiser 5k for the scholarship. The course will be the same one that was used last year. We can park at Goddard School at 87th and Indiana. Rosa is leading the charge for this event and she will need plenty of volunteers and donations for prizes, aide stations and other stuff. Please contact her if you are willing to help. Her email is Please save the date for this event and invite your friends and family to join us. More details will follow!

October Schedule

October Schedule…

Hello Ladies,

The fall weather is upon us and our running weather is improving. We made it through the hot summer runs, Congratulations!

I would like to take a moment to ‘Thank’ all of you for allowing me the opportunity to organize the club this past year. It has been a learning experience for me and I have a new appreciation for everything that Lori did. I appreciate everyone’s patience while we got through some of the ‘bumps’ along the way. I only hope I didn’t ‘scare’ any of you away. The club has done many amazing things and has been a very strong support system for so many ladies. So thank you, and please remember that you are a part of something amazing! And I also want to thank everyone who has helped with aide stations, help lead runs, help with schedules, run the track sessions, volunteered to host a book club meeting and whatever else I have forgotten. I really appreciate all of the help.

Just a reminder, the book club book this time is “The Ledge” by Jim Davidson and Kevin Vaughn. The “meeting” will be November 7th. More details will follow.
