Another great week, even with Monday’s monsoon and playing in the rain. Good test of 'we won’t melt' but FUN is always there.
Thank you to Dennis and Susan for once again playing leaders and giving back in helping us out as all 3 of us were out of the city on Sunday. Congrats to Dick for climbing mountains and accomplishing his bike goals. Congrats go to Cal, as he was in London to race the Father’s Day 5k . You both done good. To Steve Lane - 42.53 and Tony Carletti - 57.29 who ran the Father’s Day Boys Home Race.
First: our website: www.feetonfire.ca. - All updated info is on it. Share with your Friends and family
Second: We are hosting a Functional Movement seminar featuring Jenny Lindsay, a physiotherapist from Dave Archer’s clinic. Some of you have met her on Sunday and she gave a brief synopsis of what Functional Movement means. It is on June 25th, Tuesday night at 5:30 PM = 1 hour - at On edge Fitness. Please be on time and come to learn new ideas to use in your everyday life.
Third: Commencing the week of July 1st, we will start our Saturday and Sunday morning runs at 7am. We will post all this on the calendar on the website. Also - because July 1st is a Monday and Canada Day and a big family day at Canatara, we would like to suggest a time change for running for 7am. before all the festivities get underway.
We are also planning a summer event in the park: HAVE YOU RESPONDED.
July 27th - we are going to run our Half Marathon Relay and follow it with a BBQ in Canatara Park You need to let us know “IF” you want to take part - “WHAT” your 5K time is (estimate if you don’t know it) - “DO” you want to run 1 or 2 x 2 ½ KM legs of the relay and “WILL” you be staying for the BBQ? Your coaches will make up the teams. Family and Friends welcome (and they are welcome to run if you tell us their 5K time) since you will bring what you want to eat and something to share. FoF will reserve a spot in the park and we should be there early enough to reserve the area we want - last time we started at 7:30 AM and should finish the running around 9:30 AM hence the BBQ will be a brunch and will not take up your whole day (unless you want it to!) Make the subject of your email response “RELAY BBQ”
Yes I know it’s somewhat summer but we are gearing up for Fall Races. We have listed some sites on our website page with Links but I am going to let you know what the most Popular ones are. If you are unsure on where u are, what you wish to do, please contact us, talk to us and we will guide you as training plans will be rolling out in the next 2 wks and you don’t want to be behind.
