updated 10/22/15: due to member of the group not being able to make Tuesday 9 am workout; so I’ll cancel it for this week….I also will be going to meeting to meet with a parent who has to put on the Coleman School race this Sunday. Only problem is I have George Green (good runner) coming for his first day; hopefully he reads this posting….
This week: SATURDAY, 10/24/15 BILL TUINZING MEMORIAL, 1 pm at Mill Valley Community Center, 180 Camino Alto (near MV bike path). This will be even busier week for our family with my Dad’s memorial on Saturday. I invite all our members to attend, meet family and friends dear to Pop, and learn of one of the last of the “Greatest Generation”. Pop was a pillar in the running and rowing communities, WWII submarine Lt. Commander, returned to civilian life – and made the move to forego security after 15 years in the Navy to come to the US in 1953. Here he and wife Els, took advantage of the American dream and raised the family eventually on the West Coast. (can see more on the obituary in the Marin IJ online). We will have seating, food and refreshments for our guests. Please join us.
RESULTS: Humboldt Redwoods Half (10/19); 72nd Liz Shortino in 1:30:06 for 1st in 50-54; 78th Rosy Tuinzing in 1:31:21…(she did forget her shoes; ran on new ones had a bit of a blister). The previous week some of the group ran Tiburon Half: 9th Joshua B in 1:27:42 for his first half!, 23rd Egda Vera 1:34:01 for 2nd in div; 98th Gerald A a 1:49:41 for his first half! and Vicki D training for NYC did a 1:57:34
TUESDAY 10/20/15 8:30 am TEMPO . Meet at Tenn Valley , “log cabin”. for tempo repeats on the MV bike path….(we’ll see how the time switch from 9 am to 8:30 am works. Up to the group if they want to switch back to 9 am or not; either way is good for me) . We will also work on other sites for workouts.
