Welcome, everyone, to the Tryon Running Club blog site!
We officially started our running club last night at Harmon Field around 6 PM. Seven of us crazy adventurers braved the almost record breaking cold -- including a biting wind chill -- to run a few laps around the perimeter of Harmon Field. My car thermometer registered about 28 at 7 PM, but the 15-20 mph gusts made that worse.
Actually, it wasn't that dramatic. If we'd met this morning at 6 AM with 14 degrees and zero wind chill, then yes, there would be a story to tell.
We hope more runners and wannabe-runners will come out and join us each Thursday at 6 PM at the HF Track. The meeting date will probably change, but we'll keep this for now. If there is interest in a Tuesday or Thursday AM (8:30 or 9) meeting time, I can set that up, too.
If you're concerned about how fast you run, don't be. We'll break up into groups according to ability if necessary. This is mainly about having fun and meeting other runners!
See you soon!
