November 2014 Schedule

November Schedule

Hello everyone,

I want to send out many ‘congratulations’ to everyone who completed their respected distances this fall… The ones I know Lesley and her incredible marathon time in Detroit, Mary at Marine Corps and the Bear Chase, Kristy, Jim, Cindy, Wendy, Mellissa and Deborah at Rock-n-Roll, Dani and Lori at the Kooky Spooky, Jo Ann at her ½ Ironman, of course Stacy and Ironman Boulder and the many of us that ran the Hot Chocolate Race. You have all done amazing and inspired so many of us to continue on. Great Job! I’m sorry if I missed anyone. I know Denea is running New York this weekend and I believe Deborah is still ‘finding’ her marathon.

I’m not going to put it on the schedule, but Nancy and I with an occasional additional friend have been running the Ralston Creek trail from Oberon Middle School on Tuesday Evenings at 5:30pm everyone is welcome to join us, just bring your headlamps. These runs are usually about 3 miles, somewhat of a tempo run. I will post on Facebook if we give in to the cold or the dark before the next schedule comes out.

Please remember that our Scholarship Fundraiser is this Sunday at Goddard on 87th and Indiana at 8:00 am. Please plan on attending as this is our big scholarship for the season. I will be sending out letters and emails to the various high school coaches and counselors in Arvada so we should have some great candidates again this year.


November 2, 2014 – 8:00 am – meet at Goddard on 87th and Indiana. Rosa has a 5K course for us to run. I believe there is a $10 donation requested per runner. Dogs and kids and bikes are all welcome.

November 9th, 2014 – 8:00 am – I will need someone to lead this day as I am running The Great Candy Run with the Girls on the Run – We will run the Clear Creek Trail meeting at Anderson Park. Also if someone could do the aide station at Youngfield that would be fantastic. Please let me know.

November 16th, 2014 – meet at Starbucks at 7:30 am – we are going to try to run Matthew Winter again, hopefully with no ice and mud this time. If the weather is crummy we will default to the Ralston Creek trail from the Tennis Courts at 64th and Miller.

November 19th, 2014 – There are actually 2 events – Katherine Switzer will be having a meet and greet in Boulder and it is supposed to be our fundraiser night at Buffalo Wild Wings.

November 22nd – 8:30 am – 10K Turkey Trek at Long Lake Ranch in Arvada – there has been some interest in this race so I thought I would post it.

November 23rd  – 7:30 am – we will meet at Starbucks again at 64th and Ward and carpool to Angela’s house. We will run a beautiful route at Lookout Mountain.

November 27th – 9:00 am -- There has also been some interest in the Turkey Chase 5K starting at the APEX center

November 30th – 7:30 am – Starbucks again – weather pending, we will run Elk Meadow again in Evergreen and hopefully not get lost this time. If the trail is muddy we will default to run around the Arvada Res meeting at the dog park. I will post the change on Facebook.
