Routes for 3rd Annual 2 DAY MARATHON

Third annual???
YES little know but there has been marathoners who have completed this marathon for the last two horrendously cold years, here are the temps from the last two years
..day 1...day 2

this year looks to be much nicer.
well start from the crown with OSS but a little earlier 7AM.

Day two will give you good reason not to partake in to much spirits on new years eve
it will start at 7AM form Panara south (1/1/2012) good way to kick start the new years log book.

there will be one unmanned waterstop each day (let me know if you plan on running and I'll make sure there are enough cups) Oh buy the way it is completely unorganized and cost nothing, you just have to gut it out.

I got up early yesterday to get some pics of the lunar eclipse.
It was fun watching it shadow over before dropping below the horizon.
the next one wont be until 2014.

Thursday, September 22, 2011

Just a reminder, this is the last fall marathon training run.
If you want to continue to hang out with the cool kids on Saturday mornings you can get on the Off Season Striders(OSS) group email list by sending a request to John Shonyo or Jean Murray at rochrunner@gmail.com (John)or Jean at: runintojean@gmail.com.
we continue to meet Saturday mornings for a long run usually between 8 and 15 miles, and it continues throughout the winter. We start from different locations (usually Panara south or Dunn brothers north). So get on the list and you'll know where were starting from each week.

This has always been a long route. but once you complete this 22 miler in training it will give you that confidence boost for completing the marathon. Plus it should be cooler.

RTC Saturday RAC run 7:15 AM 4/30/2011

this is a little different at the start from the map that is handed out but I made it so the distance was the same. I'll caulk this route.


Tuesday, April 19, 2011

RTC RAC run Saturday 4/23 7:15AM

this was going to be the notoriously long run down Pinewood road that ended up being 22 miles so I thought this would be a good time to try out the new med city marathon course since it is so much different this year.
you can run the full at 22 miles
or go to water stop 4 then back on 4th ave to get 18.5
or go to water stop 4 twice with a solder field loop and then back on 4th for 20.5

Runners choice

See you there


Sunday, April 10, 2011
