Look around, People! The Landrum/Tryon area is turning into a major running community! The TRC has really grown over the last several months, in part because of our commitment to supporting local races here in the Foothills. We enjoyed training for the Warrior Drive 5 in spring, and now we are gearing up for Ache Around the Lake this fall (Oct. 2nd).
There is another race - a 5K in late November - that will be announced soon and we'll have that to look forward to next. Then, we have many members training for endurance races like Half and Full Marathons for winter.
We really appreciate everyone's participation and positive attitude! When we meet up, the "good jobs" or "you can do its" make group runs a safe place to land. We are all there supporting each other in our individual efforts. And, while we train together, we all know that running is such a personal sport and when it's all said and done, it's just you crossing a finish line.
Let's keep the momentum going and continue our weekly run around the lake in training for The Ache (USATF-certified 8K) and The Ouch (2-mile fun run). Sign up now to get a T-shirt and water bottle (go to first 200) - go to www.strictlyrunning.com or download an entry form.
See you Saturday the 11th at 7:30 a.m.!
