It's getting hot out there!
Summer weather and water reminder: The club brings a cooler of water to the Tuesday night group runs, but no cups - bring your own bottle. Water is not provided at speedwork. In the event of severe weather/electrical storms, use caution and common sense when going on a run. Decisions to cancel fun runs and speedwork due to weather will be made in as timely a matter as possible. 
 
Board Meeting: Tuesday at 7pm in the basement of the Urbana Free Library. Agenda here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FSiIX3xaDWxd8dJSXWqoRerNaD1XUnvV0mXf...
 
Fun Run: Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. at Meadowbrook Park in Urbana (at the intersection of Windsor and Vine - there is a parking lot and you can park on both sides of Vine as you approach the park). We will start out with a timed-ish mile running west and then south, followed by one or more two mile loops continuing in the same direction. 
 
Not sure you're up for a fast mile? The Relaxed-Pace Running Group (RPRG) does a 11-15 minute mile pace and walking is welcome. We've heard that this group is "too fast", so if you're usually the fastest person in this group, try out the "regular" pace group one week and see where you belong. And, the only way we will have a true turtle group is if the turtles of Second Wind come to the fun runs. Don't worry if you are "too slow" - there's no such thing! Your legs might be walking, but you can be running in your mind (or walking there too - it's okay). 
 
These groups go in the opposite direction, so no matter your speed you'll see other club members!
 
Post Run: Don't plan to run? Come out at 7:30. Got an idea where we should go? Or feedback (good OR bad) about a place we went? Email me!
