Wednesday workout, Feb 20


The coveted GRC Athlete of the Week award goes to Kerry Allen, who made quite a splash in her GRC debut, running a huge half marathon PR of 1:21:05 in Birmgingham.  This will be the first of many major breakthroughs for Kerry in a GRC singlet.    We also had some excellent performances on the track this weekend at Princeton.  Hilary ran a club record 10:13 for 3k, followed closely by Meghan's PR of 10:18.  Sean ran a solid 8:33 for 3k, and Witty ran a strong double of 1:56.3 for 800, and 4:20.1 for the mile.  We're going to see some very fast times on the track this spring from all four of them.  Well done!


If you're running Kirby's 5k on Saturday, please email her your address, and date of birth, and she will get you pre-registered at the discount rate of $15. 

Another option for Saturday is practice at BCC.  I plan to attend the race, so practice will be either in the early morning before I leave for the race, or in the late morning after I get back.  I know which one I'd prefer, but I'm willing to bend to the will of the majority, so if you plan to attend the workout and have a strong preference, let me know.

On Sunday, Murph and the race organizing crew will conduct a survey of the course for the race in Lauren's honor at Candy Cane City.  Everyone will be welcome to join in for a run from the Line, which is adjacent to Candy Cane City, at approximately 9 am.  We'll have further details later in the week. 
I'm looking for a volunteer to be our Captain for Cherry Blossom.  If you're willing to step forward to handle this awesome responsibility, please let me know.
We'll be at BCC at 7:15 as usual, so meet for the warmup at 6:30.
Most of the men will do 4 x 2k with a 3:00 recovery.  The other option is a much faster workout that Witty and Sean are running, and if anyone wants to join them, you're welcome to do so.
I'll send the women's workout separately.
See you at BCC tomorrow.
