Week of 11/27/17: Workouts, Sat Hill Repeats, Results

Hi Folks,

updated 12/02/17:

SUNDAY 8 am CHINA CAMP run. Meet by kiosk of China Camp Campground. ..Mike Holland, Kathy Johnson.

Looks like members of the workout group participated in different Turkey Trots around the Bay Area. Sandy and I worked the Bolinas Turkey Trot 2M on Saturday which doubled in size this year. So glad that the rain held off until Sunday – made for an enjoyable event.

Saturday was also the 35th Annual Quad Dipsea Race, a 28+M tough race on the legs.

Jane Baldwin (center) finished her 10th Quad and now retired from this tough race. She is flanked by Carolyn Hutchins and Jeri Howland. So glad it was held on Saturday and not Sunday!

If you plan to join in on the Saturday Hill Repeats, let me know by Thursday night if you’re making it. So far:  Michelle W., Lisa L, Kathleen H, Alicia H., Hans

12/2/17 SATURDAY 7:45 am HILL REPEATS/ Cross Training. At Seminary College off Seminary Drive, (you’ll see McDonald’s on east side of Hwy 101). Arrive about 7:15, park along Seminary Drive near the entry road to the College and get in your warm-up run either out/back along the Bay or the loop the group can show you. Then it’s run up the entry road to where i’ll be set up with the exercise stations.

We should be okay, but IF it’s a light rain, I will have a modified workout set up that will keep moving, include run drills, hill repeats , and small recovery jogs between sets. … Let me know if you are coming by Thursday night or Friday morning.

LOOKING AHEAD:  The CHRISTMAS RELAYS on 12/17/17 will be one of the last races for the year – and last relay event. Teams are 4 x 4.5 miles, with each person running one lap around Lake Merced. It’s a scoring event for the PA Circuit.  Please contact your age division captain at Tamalparunners.org so he or she can help put the teams of four together. We’ll have a Tamalpa Runners tent with coffee and snacks. Good camaraderie and not too long  a distance to run.
