- Saturday 6/2: Easy group run and Celebration potluck picnic brunch for all training participants and family members at Medalie Park at 8:00am
What a weekend for TCTC Training Team!
Despite the weather, everyone finished their races this weekend on very warm and humid days.
In the Bayshore: Amy P., Aubrey H., Rose C., Kristen O., Mike H., Tim M., Ali B., Caroline S., Chris B., Kendal F., Kim S., Marianne P., Megan G., Jill T., Katie A., Candice H., Amy D., Tracey W., Ross D., Belinda S., Reid J., Rob K., Kayla S., and Michelle W. all completed their races.
Special shoutout to Katie A who worked so hard on her pacing this session and reached her goal pace on her first half! Way to go, lady!
Shoutout to our marathoners, Michelle, Kayla, Rob, Belinda, and Reid to conquered an amazing challenge with the heat. Despite an injury earlier in the season and pain during the race, Reid defeated this marathon and finished it! Good job, Reid!
Also, Jill T.’s son, Jaiden, placed 31st overall in the Bayshore 10k, an amazing accomplishment despite being so young. Mentor Mike H., also placed third (AG).
Sunday’s North Mitten also had great team representation: Jenn C , Kim B, Rose C, Jill M, Cindy R, and Angela I all completed amazing races in another scorching day. Angela placed (3AG) in the 10k, (woot woot) and Joe C (2AG) in the 5k. Way to go, Joe!
Special shoutout to Jill M completing her first 10k!! What a milestone, and I hear you are already setting your sights on another goal, too!
So, after the race, I spoke to several of you. Some of you had an awesome race day. Some of you said you felt terrible. We don’t always get to control how we feel on a given race day, but we can control how we let this influence our training. After rehydrating, refueling, and recovering, I hope that all of you spend some time thinking about your next running goal. You have made awesome progress this session, but that is why running is so special. There is always progress to be made, whether physically or mentally.
Give yourself a week or two of rest, then get after another running goal. Maybe a different distance or a different race day strategy. Either way, go out there and get after another goal.
Awesome work team! See you Saturday at our potluck brunch run at Medalie Park for celebration of all of your accomplishments!
