Training programs for the new year:

Tesa Green and Heidi Matsakis are launching our running coach business called HT Method in January, just in time for marathon season.  We offer individualized training plans for any distance. The programs typically come with one-on-one instruction with a coach on a customized training plan, strength training, general nutrition and fueling strategies, and mobility/stretching drills. We were wondering you would be willing to advertise our contest that runs through Dec 26 for a FREE 18-week Marathon Training Plan.  Contest details can be found at

And the guru of the RunWalkLawrence program, J. Jenkins, has opened registration for his various training programs for the half marathon, 10K and 5K distances using the Galloway run/walk method - all beginnng Jan 7th. More info at:

Check out the results from the runLawrence Thanksgiving Day 5K. Thank you to all the 1175 participants setting our second all-time high attendance which included Olympian Amy Cragg and female winner, now of Portland and formerly from Leavenworth, KS. It was a family sweep as Alistair Cragg (Portland, OR) won the men's race. Check out your pictures, taken by our photographer Gary Henry.

Thank you to everyone who has already signed up or volunteered to help our Thanksgiving Day Run. Reminder packet pickup is available on Wed, Nov 23 at Ad Astra Running, 734 Mass, our title sponsor. Please come in after 11:30 am and before 6 pm. Allow us time to set up. Thanks to Riordan, Fincher, Munson & Sinclair for their support of the children's fun run.

We are still needing a couple more course marshals, help at the clothing bag drop table (3-4 people). Volunteers get nice long-sleeve shirts.

How does racewalking stack up against running in terms of positives (fitness and health) and negatives (injuries)?
