Anarchy reigns-- No one is coddling anyone. This is good. This is NOT a "you can do it!" group. Do it, or don't do it, or hurt yourself trying. That's respectable.
The MN RED Training Group for those that expect to finish a marathon in four hours or better.
This group is for people whose goal is to run 500 miles this year.
For those who are as addicted to cycling as they were/are to running. If you consider a 30 mile ride @17mph to be an easy day this is your group. The following is a sample monthly mileage goal: 325, 325, 350, 450, 500, 550, 600, 500, 400, 350, 325, 325. All you have to do is average 13.7 miles /day.
A group trying to run the 13.1 mile distance 52 times in 52 weeks. (And we even made it easier, full marathons count as 2!)
Joinin us late? Just pro-rate! (and get the full 52 next year)
This intermediate group is meant for those runners who find the 1000M Club too challenging, but the 1000K Club too easy. Our goal is to run 800 miles before the end of the year.
This group is based off of the website (not affiliated with though) www.runeveryday.com - where to get your name on the site you have to run at least one mile every day for one year. There are people out there that have done this for 20 and 30+ years, so I figure why don't we start with one year and see what happens.
"...They'll speak our names in hushed tones, 'those guys are animals' they'll say! We can lay it on the line, bust a gut, show them a clean pair of heels. We can sprint the turn on a spring breeze and feel the winter leave our feet! We can, by God, let our demons loose and just wail on!"
-John L. Parker Jr., Once a Runner
This group is for Armstrong Research subjects to record information about mileage run.
A couple former runners getting back into running.
Anyone from our running group who is training for specific races.
For anyone interested in learning more about barefoot running. Why run barefoot?
* Many people find it cures their injuries, including knee/hip/back pain and chronic PF, by teaching much better form and strengthening underused muscles.
* It's fun!
* It's cheap!
* It makes you look really tough! (shh, don't tell anyone but it's actually really easy)
